Only use liners in bathroom bins and change only when soiled Ask guests to put messy waste in these bins Room bins can just be wiped over Upturn bathroom glasses - they do not need plastic wrapping Display fruit in reusable baskets or bowls Only replace empty toiletries If provided, refill dispensers of hand soap, shower gel or shampoo, rather than providing individual bottles of toiletries
