Green Hotel

August 21, 2009 | 1 Comment   

Many hotels claim to be green. Often I see a card in the hotel telling us to limit the usage of towels and leave it in the tub if it required washing. They encourage us not to waste energy for the washing, waste labor or waste detergent. I am not sure they want to cut down on expenses for more profit or they want to help the environment.

One of the hotels I stayed to had this sign. However I am surprised that they use foam cups and plates. It takes a very long time for polystyrene material that makes the foam cup biodegrade. Materials that are not good for the environment. I bet they want to save money of labor to wash the plates or cups. They do provide plates and cups but it was not very visible. Cutleries are all plastics.

Next time if any hotel tells you they are green, better take it with a pinch of salt. They want to be green if it can help them save cost.
