JRS Amenities addresses plastic problem with expanded collection

Canada: JRS will unveil its new line of MOSAIC in-room dispensers at HX The Hotel Experience in New York City on November 10 and 11, 2019.

The expanded MOSAIC collection is designed to boost the hospitality sector’s adoption of amenity dispensers and the elimination of single-use plastic bottles.

Its new design, of three years in the making, includes several formats:

  • Classic Open System – refillable and tamperproof, this design is the optimal solution for the environment.
  • Classic Closed System – a proprietary cartridge, pre-filled with a choice of over 30 approved luxury brands.
  • Slimline – for locations with limited shower space.

Each collection is a one-time, screw-free, wall mount installation, and is fully customisable in any colour with potential for branded graphics and printing.

A companion vanity top dispenser for hand wash and lotion is also available.

“JRS and MOSAIC are committed to empowering more hotels to meet the evolving demands of eco-conscious travellers,” said Susan Howard-Memory, designer and owner of MOSAIC. “In the design of our products, we see every component through a sustainable lens and consider how to improve the benefits and reduce its impact on our environment. We listen extensively to our customers to develop solutions that address their visual, functional and budgetary needs”.

Mandarin Oriental, who announced plans to eliminate all single-use plastics by 2021, support the product. “We are committed to eliminate single-use plastic in our guest rooms and are very excited to have developed a partnership with MOSAIC in order to drive important changes in the industry and contribute to a cleaner environment for all,” commented Anja Luthje, group director of rooms and quality at Mandarin Oriental.

Since its introduction in 2014, MOSAIC is used in over 21 countries worldwide. It was recently featured by Senator Todd Kaminsky in a legislation proposal to regulate New York’s hotel industry to eliminate tens of millions of small, single-use plastic toiletries from the waste stream each year.

JRS Amenities, the parent company of MOSAIC, was established in 1988 and is a provider of upscale amenity brands and custom-made amenity solutions.
