Often in hotel bathrooms you will find a sign reminding you of the water conservation in hotels. Usually what they explain is that towels on the floor will be replaced while towels hung up will not. It does make sense; at home I wash my towels once a week so fresh towels every day does seem a bit unnecessary. I have found, however, that often even when you hang up your towels they end up getting replaced. Plus, to be honest, when I am staying in hotels I do like the luxury of fresh linens.
I have often wondered if this was truly about the environment or the hotel’s bottom line. Or the hotel’s image as being eco friendly.
