Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis
亚愽娱乐官网网址夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.
According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon亚愽娱乐官网网址夜网女神会所
request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).
At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number
of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.
亚愽娱乐官网网址夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc
ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.
“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre亚愽娱乐官网网址夜网
e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.
Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc
亚愽娱乐官网网址夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.
Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu

亚愽娱乐官网网址品茶微信rts’ forecasts, which held that the first 5G models would run about 10,000 yuan due to high production costs.
Huawei has strong capabilities in developing in-house chips and integrating亚愽娱乐官网网址品茶微信女神会所
