    Further to above, Cartoon boxes insde the Hotel(Geneally use for storing) gives place to breed, Specially cockroaches & rats. in current scenerio start hotels are avoiding such boxes to come inside the premises. Taj Group of hotels has taken initiative to do so, I mean you wouldn,t find cartoon boxes inside the premises(it is just started in the few units). ISO norms also says to avoid carton boxes for storing.
