Environment unfriendly hotels
Attached is a photograph of the mineral water bottles being collected by the housekeeping in a prominent 5 star hotel in chennai. The management seems to not care about reducing the use of use and throw plastic. Whenever we stay or eat in a hotel, we always ask for normal RO water. We do not use the bottled mineral water. And the hotels have always obliged. However, in this 5 start hotel (we did not get accommodation in the neighboring normal hotel), when we asked them to give us normal RO water in a jug in the room, they refused. Saying that they do no have jugs or similar containers and that they could not fill it in our bottle. So, we used one bottle of mineral water and then whenever we went to a hotel for food, we gave them our bottle to be filled with normal RO water. Agreed that most customers will not care about the use or misuse of these mineral water bottles, but at least when a customer asks for normal water, they should oblige.
