When people take a vacation, they often take a vacation from responsibility, too. That’s not entirely a bad thing. How else would anyone get into the mindset of paragliding or bungee-jumping? But taking a break from the day-to-day responsibilities of homework and part-time jobs doesn’t mean stomping all over the poor planet.

Our behavior at hotels is one of the biggest problems. We have our linens washed daily for us, and are provided with an endless stream of hot water— what’s not to love about that? But all of this luxury equals serious consequences for the environment. More and more hotels are becoming eco-friendly, offering programs and facilities that conserve water and energy. You’ve seen the signs posted in hotel bathrooms asking you to reuse your towels as often as you can, haven’t you? That’s a good start, but there is a lot more you can do to help cut down the amount of waste generated wherever you stay — a hotel, motel, or B&B.
