As part of its ongoing sustainable journey, Molton Brown is proud to introduce a new game-changing dispenser to support their hotel partners. Available worldwide in early 2021, the Molton Brown Signature Dispenser is the latest addition to the brand’s expanding dispensing programme – continuing its purpose to reduce waste.
Whilst greatly reducing waste and excess spending, installing the dispenser prevents more than 18,250 bottles and 137kg of plastic being sent to landfill every year*, supporting hotels’ conscious care for the environment.
Featuring the brand’s heritage Mayfair Ebony colourway and refined Gun Metal finish, the dispenser is crafted to suit every bathroom aesthetic. It has a removable metal plate to change the product collection name, and a fill level indicator on the front, for housekeeping staff to clean and replenish with ease.
To ensure the highest standards of hygiene, it has a tamper-proof system, which means it can’t be opened or removed by hotels guests.
The Molton Brown Signature Dispenser can be filled with 350ml of the brand’s bestselling, Bath, Body, Hand and Hair Care collections, crafted by their eclectic set of perfumers. Made in England, these products are created with the same fine-quality formulas as the retail versions. Hotels can choose from a diverse selection of distinctive scents to treat their guests to a full, sensorial ritual; from an invigorating morning shower to a restorative night-time soak.
Beatrice Descorps, Global Vice President of Marketing, proudly shares: “As an early pioneer in positive luxury, we’ve been offering dispenser solutions for over 20 years; easing your mind on hygiene and safety whilst enhancing your guests’ experiences. The more we replenish and reuse, we’re one step closer to eliminating plastic consumption, whilst nurturing our natural resources.”
*Based on Molton Brown data of 30ml bottles used annually in a typical 100-room luxury hotel.
