    Marriott Hotels is on track to becoming the fashion-forward, eco-friendly hotel of the UK.
    The international hotel group launched a new tote bag collection in partnership with social enterprise Sleeping Bags and British luxury brand Lily and Lionel.

    The bags are made completely out of retired bed linens and left as bedside amenities inside UK Marriott hotel rooms.

    Another thing they could do is to donate them to low income families who can't afford nice bed linens.

    Very good idea. It would be nice to see the major hotel chains donate items they are replacing, could help out many folks. ;)
