Go Green

I recently checked into the Marriott Madison East and was staying for two nights. At check-in the front desk clerk asked me if I’d like to “go green?” I said I didn’t know what that was. She took many words to explain it meant that my room would not be cleaned while I was at the hotel. The idea being that sheets and towels would not be changed-out thus saving the environment. They implemented it by simply not sending housekeeping to your room.

I would have been happy to reuse the towels and sheets, but wanted the room straightened up and the bed made, so I said no thank you.

I was struck by the fact that the program was called “go green” to leverage the idea that you can save the environment. Good name, bad implementation in my view; unless the goal is to cut the cost of housekeeping without offering a discount.
