Gilchrist & Soames
Retail style bottles are the star attraction of Gilchrist & Soames’ latest dispenser. The disappearing Mini-Bracket accommodates a non-refillable retail style bottle. Each locking aluminum Mini-Bracket is easily mounted with 3M tape and opened using a key, enabling the bottle to slide seamlessly into position, before closing the lid to secure. The discreet bracket remains hidden behind each bottle.
Bottles feature an inconspicuous liquid viewing window so housekeeping staff know when it is time to replace and recycle. A variety of brands are available in this solution or alternatively you can create custom graphics.

ECO POD by Hotel Emporium
The ECO POD is the ultimate zero-plastic sustainable solution for your hotel! Never worry about single-use plastic amenities, pollution, heavy liquid formulations, and bacteria build-up again! Our unique powder formulation is packaged in a pod made of 60 percent bamboo fiber, 30 percent sugarcane fiber, and 10 percent wood fiber, which creates a lightweight, stackable product for lighter transportation and a lower carbon footprint. Their compact size saves space in any hotel bathroom and allows each guest to have their own personal pod. Easy to use, easy to ship, and easy to compost, we are paving the way to a zero-plastic future.

“We are delighted to introduce Public Goods, our new brand partner, to the hospitality industry. Our companies share the same values: a commitment to sustainability, a promise to give back, a focus on guest well-being, and beautiful design that works in every space,” says Mary Ann Pettorini, President, Principle Brands, a woman-owned amenity company in Washington D.C.
From product formulations that nurture with pure essential oils—free of sulfates, parabens and toxic additives—to refillable dispensers and bulk packaging created from sugarcane, every Public Goods shipment is carbon offset and a tree is planted for every order. It is all good.
