09 Feb Your Monthly Green Tip: Avoid disposable products or throwing away useful items
Disposable products create tons of garbage at your property and end up filling landfills. There are suitable alternatives:
- Provide reusable items such as cloth napkins, glass cups and ceramic dishes with all food and beverage services.
- Provide glass cups and ceramic mugs (instead of plastic cups) for in-room beverages. Place cups and mugs upside down on paper doilies (instead of covering the opening with a plastic wrapping).
- Donate leftover food to a local nonprofit organization and/or use a compost bin.
- Donate leftover guest amenities, old furniture, and appliances to charities.
Best of all? You can apply these very same strategies back at home! Save the environment – and save yourself some money!
