Green Holiday Travel -- Reuse Towels
Even dedicated staycationers can be lured from home during the season of family gatherings. This week we'll offer tips on how to green your holiday travel.
Tip # 4: Hang it up
The celebratory atmosphere of the holidays can test the best kept habits (another slice of pumpkin pie, anyone?). A little indulgence is natural, but if you wouldn't normally waste water and energy to wash a towel that's only been used once, don't break that rule just because you're staying in a hotel. Many hotels won't wash towels that are hanging neatly on the rack, but it's wise to find out before you check in. The Green Hotels Association recommends giving each family member a safety pin with a different colored bead, then attaching them to the towels to tell them apart.
