Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson explains his decision to to replace travel-sized tubes of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel with larger bottles in an attempt to reduce plastic waste.

The world's largest hotel chain said the switch is part of a larger test that it implemented in some of its North American hotels last year.

The change will affect roughly 500,000 guest rooms and will be made at most of its 7,000 hotels around the world by December 2020. Marriott owns several popular brands, including Courtyard, Ritz-Carlton, W Hotels and Sheraton.
