Taiwan to restrict hotels' use of disposable toiletries

By mandating the use of larger, reusable bottles for toiletries in hotels, plastic waste could be cut by around 2,100 metric tons per year

Jul 18, 2023

Hotels in Taiwan will be restricted from supplying single-use toiletries unless they are specifically requested, with effect from 2025, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) said this week.

Key takeaways

  • Liquid toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion will have to be provided in bottles with a volume of at least 180 milliliters;
  • Disposable items such as combs, razors, toothbrushes, toothpaste and shower caps will no longer be offered in guests' rooms, though hotels will still be allowed to provide them on request;
  • The regulations will not apply in hotel facilities outside of guest rooms, such as spas or swimming pools.
