Ovolo Introduces new OMG Line of Eco Friendly Bath Amenities
Ovolo Hotels – a collection of 10 design-driven hotels throughout Hong Kong and Australia – has announced the launch of its new “OMG” line of eco-friendly bathroom amenities, in collaboration with the Vanity Group.
A bold move away from single-use plastic bathroom amenities, all OMG amenities are designed in a sustainable manner, making use of re-fillable, tamper-free pump bottles. The bottles are HDPE recyclable, reducing the contribution to landfill; through this initiative, Sydney’s Ovolo Woolloomooloo alone has seen a 98% reduction in this form of plastic.
In keeping with Ovolo’s ‘effortless living’ philosophy, guests can avoid the hassle of bringing their own bathroom amenities with them when they travel, knowing they will have access to high-quality products when they stay with Ovolo. With names like “Ain’t No Scrub,” “‘Wash This Way” and “Smooth Operator,” the branding is inspired by Ovolo’s love of music. Additionally, the entire range of OMG amenities is free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, synthetic colours and animal testing – in short, the products are good for the body, skin and planet. The hair blends are infused with the soothing properties of lavender, pink grapefruit and ginger to promote hair growth and balanced oil production, while body blends contain an energizing selection of essential oils; lemongrass, rosemary and geranium are rich in antioxidants to tone and detoxify the skin.
Girish Jhunjhnuwala, founder and CEO of Ovolo Group, says: “We are committed to continuing our journey towards reducing our impact on the environment. Having already removed plastic straws from all properties, removing single-use plastic bathroom amenities was a natural next step in our journey towards sustainable living.”
Commenting on Ovolo Hotels‘ initiative and partnership, Paul Tsalikis, founder and CEO of Vanity Group, said: “We have a long-standing and reciprocal relationship with Ovolo, which has been active since 2015. We were honored to create a bespoke brand for them. In combination with Ovolo, and Vanity Group’s dedication to reducing pollution and landfill, we are both taking a stance on clean label products, harnessing the power of natural and sustainable ingredients – good for the body, skin, and planet.”
This launch comes off the back of a number of eco-friendly initiatives already implemented by the hotel group including removing plastic straws, introducing reusable woven bags for slippers and the use of biodegradable materials in laundry bags and packaging. Ovolo Hotels is committed to continuing to find ways to further reduce its environmental footprint.
