Green ... Washing at the Hyatt?

I'm in a hotel, and there's a little sign in the bathroom that says they're not replacing linens and towels every day to save resources, and if you want fresh ones, you can call the front desk.

So I don't call the front desk, because I'd rather save resources.

But I leave the room for a few hours and when I get back, the towels I left hanging in the bathroom have been replaced with fresh ones.  The sheets too, apparently.

A couple of hotel stays ago, there was a similar sign about saving resources; it said to leave the towels on the floor if you wanted fresh towels.  I dutifully hung up the towels so I could reuse them, but they got replaced anyway.

So what gives?
