Did you know it takes three gallons of water to clean a pound of laundry generated by a hotel? There are roughly three pounds of linens per room, and about the same weight in towels per guest. Multiply that by over one hundred rooms and you arrive at 3,000 gallons per day! Based on this, Lakeside Inn has implemented a towel and linen reuse program called Go Green For Big Blue, which allows guests to choose to reuse their towels and linens instead of having them changed every day of their stay. Guests receive a $5 dining certificate for each night housekeeping is declined (except day of departure) during their stay.
It is estimated by The American Hotel and Lodging Association that reusing towels and linens reduces the number of loads of laundry washed, as well as the related water, sewer, and energy by 17%. Decreasing the amount of laundry is critical in conserving water and also reduces the amount of detergents going into the environment and polluting our water systems.
