I am always disappointed with BW(and other chains) breakfasts because of the use of single use plastic. Most BW hotels contribute literally tons of plastic waste to landfills all over the world. This Best Western in Penticton BC is the exception. Imagine having your nice breakfast on a real plate using metal cutlery. Having your coffee in a real mug. What a treat gastronomicly and what a comfort to know your breakfast meal does not result in a pile of plastic cutlery and plates and cups that will most certainly end up in local landfills. The hotel industry is a major contributor to this unneccesary waste and I hope that BW managment will follow the lead of the Penticton location to begin using reusable cups, plates and cutlery to serve their breakfasts. (yes of course they need to washed but I suggest this can be done responsibly) Still an issue with this and all BW that I know of is the use of small plastic containers for soaps, shampoos and rinse products. These products can and should be available in pump style dispensers. What a simple change that would keep tones of soap and chemicals and plastic out of landfills all over the world. Thank you for thinking of yours children and mine and future generations when deciding on practices, proceedures and products in your hotel. less
