What Planet ...

... are we trying to save here?

If you've spent any time in a hotel in the past decade or so you've no doubt come across a placard like this one. And it makes sense. Why waste water to clean a towel that can easily be used again? The same for bed clothes. You don't change the sheets everyday in your house, so why in a hotel? And it saves the hotel plenty of money in water, detergent, electricity, and in compensation for the cleaning staff.

But take a close look at the illustration of the globe. What happened to Alaska? What is sticking out of the top of Canada? Where did Greenland go? And is that Europe and Africa off the west coast of North America?
