Recycling on Vacation Too

June 27th, 2008

I have a new suggestion for you when filling out comment cards at hotels this vacation season:

Ask the hotel to start including recycling bins in guest rooms.

Or at least in the lobby. And that leads me to this question — What do you do with items you’d normally recycle when you’re away from home?

While on vacation, you’re probably tempted to just throw those items away. After all, you’ll have enough to contend with when you get back. Sorting through recycling you took on the plane or in the car? Hmm, doesn’t seem like much fun, does it?

The easiest solution seems to be asking hotels or B&Bs to start including recycling bins for their guests. Some hotels already do this, and you can search for them at Environmentally Friendly Hotels.

What do you do with your recycling while on vacation?
