At least there should be a place to discard items which could be recycled if this much waste is to be produced per room by accessing amenities. Photograph ©2014 by Brian Cohen.

…and the winner of this award is:

Hyatt On The Bund
199 Huang Pu Road
Shanghai, China 200080

It is a very nice hotel at which to stay — I intend to post a review of this hotel property – but they really should think about how to present amenities for the room in a manner more friendly to the environment, in my opinion…

…perhaps they should borrow the idea of an amenity kit typically offered by airlines?
