I know I’m not the only one who has a collection of toiletries from various hotels I’ve visited. I’ll even get excited to stay at a specific hotel if I really like the brand of toiletries they use. The news that IHG Hotels is going to remove the small plastic toiletries bottles from all of their hotels and move towards using larger size refillable containers by the end of 2021 was a bit of a shock.
I’m not saying this because I don’t care about the environment and I know these little plastic bottles have to go somewhere. I’m also aware that smaller packaging is much less efficient and results in a larger amount of waste being generated. Taking all of that into account, there’s still going to be a part of me that will miss bringing home some shampoo that will bring back memories of my vacation.
After giving it some thought, I realized that the world’s not going to end over this. Hopefully, it will get to last a little longer if we use less plastic. With a little advance planning, I’ll still be able to enjoy my favorite hotel toiletries at home.

Nintendo is scheduled to set up a huge booth at the San Diego Comic-Con, the grandaddy of all Comic Cons, held at the San Diego Convention Center on July 18-21. Their focus will be on its new game, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. However it will also have a Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, which is right next door to the convention center. The lounge will be open to the public and will offer playable games such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Pokémon Sword and Shield, Super Mario Maker 2, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.
Southwest Airlines will be at the lounge with a Super Mario Maker 2 contest that attendees can enter. Winners can potentially win a Nintendo Switch + Super Mario Maker 2 bundle.
However, not everyone who attends Comic-Con lives in San Diego – they have to travel to get there. And apparently not everyone has to “win” in order to get that Nintendo Switch + Super Mario Maker 2 bundle. And that’s where things got interesting for some airline passengers…
