Responsible solution to landfill waste offered with Jean-Michel Cousteau By Marcoid

All plastic packaging components completely biodegrade in landfill to CO2, water and humus, leaving nothing that’s harmful to the environment behind.

Melbourne, Australia September 8, 2011 – It’s a sobering statistic: Despite the best efforts of green teams around the world, 95% of all items disposed of in hotel rooms end up in landfill. That includes some 5.5 billion hotel toiletry bottles per year.

Leave it to Jean-Michel Cousteau – son of legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and founder of the Ocean Futures Society – to enlist an effective solution.

The famed explorer, environmentalist and filmmaker has partnered with Concept Amenities and Maricoid to introduce a carefully crafted environmental collection of bath and body care products. This unique, branded collection – Jean-Michel Cousteau by Maricoid – is inspired by the beauty and wonders of the oceans and reflects Cousteau’s life-ling commitment to the environment.

The comprehensive line of liquids, soaps and accessories contains not only organic and biodegradable ingredients formulated by Marcoid, but biodegradable packaging from Concept Amenities that is eco-friendly as well. The plastic packaging components completely biodegrade in landfill to CO2, water and humus, leaving nothing that’s harmful to the environment behind.

“Our planet is a living organism,” explains Cousteau. “We have the capacity to design our own future, and bring our values and actions in line with ecological necessities. This is the commitment we need to make to the world, now.” Which is why this ambassador of the environment chose to partner with Concept Amenities, a world leader in the supply of environmentally responsible guest amenities.

Jean-Michel Cousteau plans to be on hand personally for global launch of the his collection at this year’s Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference at the Miami Beach Convention Center on September 14.
