I find that pretty much every hotel I stay in now has a note in the bathroom saying that the hotel believes strongly in sustainability and therefore have decided not to change the towels every day in an attempt to save water. The deal is that if you leave the towel on the floor it will be replaced but if not it won’t. Easy right?

Problem is I wonder whether the hotels tell their cleaning staff about this program. Whenever I stay at hotels I always put my towel back on the rack so I can reuse it the next day. Pretty much every time they still replace my towel with a nice new one.

What is the use of printing out stickers to tell guests about your sustainability policies it if you aren’t actually going to follow them yourself?

Next time you are in a hotel, and they change your towels, call them on it.
