It isn’t always easy to put eco-conscious actions into practice, seeing as we have grown so used to a world that caters to everyone’s convience rather than encouraging a green manner of living. And no where is that more evident than in the hotel industry, where towels are often washed daily and air conditioners are left on all day.
As we learn more about what we can each do to protect our planet, recycling; buying local produce; avoiding unneccessary packaging; and using natural elements with which to sustain our basic heating, cooling and watering needs have become a part of our daily routine and not just at home. An increasing number of holiday makers are opting for eco-holidays as a means to continue their daily, green practices even whilst on vacation.
And luckily for them (and Mother Nature), hoteliers are doing the same.
