11. oh no, no no no no. I do NOT camp. Hate it.

I'll re-use the towels, tell them they I don't require clean sheets every morning, etc. (if I'm staying in a room more than one night, obviously).

I'll be as eco-friendly as I can. And we have a friend who is building eco-hotels; we may be able to work with them this year on implementing alt-energy routines into their hotel systems. But I DO NOT camp. Never have liked it. If I go away on 'vacation', I want to get a good night's rest!

And the comment about higher priced items lasting longer is mostly true, but not always. I think a better way to have stated that would be to look for items made sustainably, which do cost more, but are better for everyone in the long run. Unfortunately, a lot of the 'designer brands' are now producing their crap right next to the cheaper stuff in Chinese factories (Ralph Lauren, I'm looking at you). Unless you buy couture, which is hugely wasteful anyway.
