Caring about the environment is something we should all do, but there are those who have taken it one step further, not just in their homes but on holiday as well. Given that many of these people make the toxic-less choice because of allergies and the like (even sending their own special sheets to the hotel ahead of time), others simply believe in true “green living”.
Kudos to them I say, but speaking for myself, I would be too lazy to bother if my hotel sheets were washed with some eco-friendly detergent. Ignorance is bliss, at least on holiday at a 5 star-hotel.
But back to what I was saying, those who do want to stay in a hotel without any “toxic exposure”, or maybe even at a hotel who runs things in an environmentally-friendly way now can as these places actually do exist! In the US for instance:
Failing that, smaller bed-and-breakfast places are good bets as these places (especially the older ones) are naturally less inclined to use industrial-strength cleaning chemicals, use old-fashioned natural materials, like hardwood floors as opposed to (lethally?) treated synthetics.
