Did you make your bed this morning? Did you change the sheets?

If sleeping in an unmade bed on the same sheets doesn't bother you, then hotels are asking for permission to skip housekeeping in your room.

'March For Our Lives' Rallies Across the US

Many chains have given you the option of skipping fresh towels before, but now they're rewarding you if you take them up on it.

Some hotels are offering free food and drink vouchers if you go without housekeeping for an extended stay.

Other chains will give you additional reward points which you can cash in for things like upgrades or a free night stay.

It's incentive to save the hotel on laundry costs and protects the environment.

The march is part of an ongoing grass roots movemnt started by students from Parkland, Florida after a gunman killed 17 people during an attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. They're calling on lawmakers to change gun laws as part of their promise to help keep schools safe.
