There is almost nothing better than the blank slate of a new year. Let it be a year of prosperity, innovation, and growth. A common goal many Americans have is to live a more eco-friendly life, leaving a smaller carbon footprint. It can be a daunting task, but one that we take seriously at Wilkins.
Your Green Goals
Although disposable tableware, linens and medical gowns have been touted as convenient, their obvious environmental impact is undeniable. These items contribute to waste, as most are not recyclable. In addition they lack the level of class and comfort that many are accustomed to. Here are 3 way to go green in your hospitality needs:
Going green is basically the process of making environmentally-friendly decisions, or replacing wasteful habits with greener habits. In a normal day you will be faced with hundreds of decisions, and by going green you’ll find yourself making a conscious effort to choose the least wasteful or harmful option. This can be as simple as bringing your own mug to the coffee shop, or asking employees to bring their own water bottles to work rather than providing disposable plastic cups.
2. Less Waste.
If you are considering disposable table settings for your special event or catering service, think again! A greener option is to invest in quality linens that can be washed and reused, or to lease linens from a reputable source. Not only does this dramatically cut down on waste, but is often more cost effective in the end.
3. More Class.
Using fabric linens and real tableware not only decreases waste, but elevates the image of your company or event. These items are reusable, sustainable and thoroughly cleaned after every use. The visual impact of real table linens cannot be overstated, and can do for a formal event what disposable linens simply can’t.
A Greener New Year
Going green can seem like an overwhelming concept, but if you start small and make gradual changes in you lifestyle and habits, you’ll find it’s easier than ever. If you’re planning an event, or choosing a catering company or other hospitality service, think about going green with reusable products, or supporting businesses that do.
