You've seen them on vacation and on business trips. They're the little cards that inform you that the hotel staff doesn't really want to wash your linens. They read a lot like this (text taken off of a Project Planet card).
The Project Planet program is an effort of this hotel to protect the environment through conservation of water and the decreased use of detergent.Okay - great idea. Now, environmentally conscious hotel, where's my recycle bin? Even one in the lobby would be good. But, no, none of that. Hotels - especially those that give you free papers in the morning, really ought to be doing that. And then hyping the heck out of it - after all, the hotel chain is obviously "environmentally conscious."
If you are staying with us more than one night, as part of the Project Planet program, we will launder your linens every three days.
If you would prefer not to participate in this program, simply leave this card on your pillow and linens will be changed today.
As always linens are automatically changed after every guest check-out.
Printed on recycled paper. Laminated to reduce waste.
That's something that's always irked me.
