Recently I spent a couple of nights at a hotel that was ostentatiously green. They gave you a $10 credit to the gift shop if you would agree to not have the maid make up your room. They encouraged you to save electricity by providing only one weak lightbulb for a spacious room (fortunately I was reading on my Kindle, not by hotel light).
The soap was called "terra green." It came in a nice cardboard package, eminently recyclable or biodegradable. But imagine my surprise when I opened the package and found another layer of packaging, and it seemed to be plastic!
