I travel a lot. Maybe too much. One of my pet peeves is that almost every hotel SAYS they engage in ecology conserving activities (such as washing towels every 3 days versus daily) but virtually NONE OF THEM do it.
I didn't expect this trip to be any different. This is a huge hotel near the convention center, and is more expensive than what I would pay for personal travel, but with convention negotiated prices I was able to spend nearly a week at this hotel.
The hotel has a recycling program, offering trash and recyclable collection in each room. The convention center even collects compostable materials (many of which appear to be plastic these days).
I had a great stay and wanted to thank the hotel for NOT washing the towels and sheets daily. I believe this is one of the many ways frequent travelers should try to minimize their impact on the environment.
