Hotels are changing their wasteful habits and getting involved in the move to save the environment. At
major hotels throughout the world, guests are being greeted by shampoo and mouthwash in glass dispensers
instead of elaborate plastic bottles. They are discovering recycling bins in their rooms, and are encouraged to use
towels more than once before they are washed.
This green movement is becoming increasingly popular among tourists who look for service providers with
an environmental conscience. The business of eco-tours is increasing rapidly. Travel agents are booking clients
on “Save the Rainforest” expeditions and similar trips where the emphasis is on protecting the world.
The tourists on these trips are given lectures on the effects of the loss of our planet’s natural wonders
and what they can do to reverse the trend. They do not need much convincing. The travelers on these excursions
are already committed to environmental protection. In fact, a two-year study of litter in Antarctica found that the
entire collection of litter left by visitors to the continent could be put in one small sandwich bag. Compare that
amount of litter with what the average traveler finds strewn on the streets around a hotel, even an
environmentally sensitive hotel.
