Today I join fellow bloggers on the Down to Earth blog on the regular Friday feature, 'On my mind...'
Regular readers know that DH and I have been travelling these past 6 weeks. We like our hotels to have free wifi, laundry facilities if possible and DH likes a package where breakfast is included. We've stayed in many hotels on this holiday and the type and quality of breakfast offered has varied greatly. We've contributed to an increase in landfill here by the number of plastic bowls, plates and cutlery we've used in most motels.
Our hotel in New York was undergoing renovations on the lower floor so management provided 'breakfast boxes' that we collected from reception and then took to our rooms to consume. So even though I'm going to be critical, I acknowledge it was all about convenience and providing a service despite difficulties.
