Enviro tip #217

If you happen to stay in a nice hotel or guest facility - leave those little lotions and shampoos behind, unused.

You'll save the overall cost of the room, in the long run - if enough people do it. Plus, you'll lessen the impact on landfills and the efforts of cleaning staff in replenishing those supplies.

Smaller containers use more materials in packaging than larger containers. Thus, when you use those, you're using more PVC per ounce. You get the picture.

Good tip. I think subconsciously I think of leaving them as throwing them away - like when you don't finish your meal at a restaurant. But it's not like that!

Aawwhhhh...but I love those little bottles of lotions and potions. It is one of the joys of staying in a nice hotel - something I rarely do.
