Minimizing waste is important to sustain both natural resources & the tourism industry itself (Cummings, 1992, 1997). Few studies, however, assess waste minimization practices in the tourism industry or track their implementation over time. A European study even found decreasing interest in waste minimization from hoteliers over time (Bohdanowicz 2005).
