For all those who travel regularly, or even occasionally, you know the temptation, whether we need something or not, to grab a few of those free toiletries on the way out. After all, we paid a lot for the room, right? But taking those plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and lotion, and plastic-covered mini-soaps contributes to not only a waste of resources but, especially concerning, a demand for more plastics. So, resist the urge! Instead, don’t count on what the hotel can provide but bring your own old, but easily washed out, containers which you can refill at home. And you might even leave a comment card for the hotel management to suggest they do away with offering these plastic freebees at all!
