We have stayed at a number of hotels this summer both in Canada and in the United States. Most hotel visitors these days are used to being ask you to please only leave dirty towels on the bathroom floor. There is much more that you can do however to have a greener stay. Turn off the lights and the air conditioning when you leave the room. Keep the blinds closed to keep the room cooler. If you are staying for more than one night, put the do not disturb sign on your door so housekeeping doesn’t come and clean your sheets every day. Ultimately these small actions will save the hotel money which in turn will save you money as the hotel won’t have to increase their room fees.
