Lathered Up! California Wants to Ban Tiny Hotel Shampoo Bottles
If you are planning a family vacation to California – you might want to consider packing your own bottle of Vidal Sassoon.
Democrats in the state house are proposing legislation that would ban hotels from providing tiny bottles of shampoo and conditioner and body wash.

Assemblyman Ash Karla co-authored the bill. He said those tiny bottles are hurting the environment.
“By not offering small bottles of personal care products, hotels, motels, and other lodging establishments can promote a more sustainable business and potentially reduce operating costs,” he said. “AB 1162 will take meaningful action to curb single-use plastic consumption in the lodging industry and increase consumer awareness.”
Last year Santa Cruz County became the first jurisdiction in the state to ban the bottles after getting all lathered up over environmental issues.
In 2014 California became the first state to ban plastic grocery bags. And earlier this year they banned restaurants from automatically giving customers plastic straws.
This is what happens when Democrats are in charge of government, folks. The citizenry has to haul around their groceries in hemp-woven bags while sipping their guava juice with a straw made from a cardboard box.
It seems to me California has much bigger problems than tiny shampoo bottles – like the full-sized hypodermic needles littering San Francisco’s sidewalks or those giant piles of human poop.
