I often hear from folks representing startup companies. Sometimes the ideas they have are good ones but not practical. I recently received a press release about a toilet seat that includes a fan to help reduce the smell in a bathroom. The seat requires a connection to a hose leading to an outside area that can be vented. Would you buy these for your hotel? I also get pitches about products that just might make it in hospitality but are not green. One established company recently came out with a product in a fogging can that can be released in a guestroom that has an odor issue. The company says the product is non-toxic and safe for the environment. I put in a call to the company to see if it is safe to be in the room when the fogging is taking place. Nobody returned my call. That product, pitched as a green product, is supposedly being used in more than 300 hotels.
