There’s no greater feeling than a new year to start fresh. The textile industry contributes to a huge waste problem in the United States. Make it a goal for your business to choose a greener alternative when possible.
Your Sustainable Goals
While it may be easier to use disposable gowns and linens; the negative impact on the environment is unquestionable. Landfills are filled with one-time-use textiles. Why not use 2019 as a new year to reduce your carbon footprint? Help your facility to go green in 2019!

If your industry is currently using disposable medical gowns, or linens, consider a sustainable alternative such as renting linens. Opting for reusable linens not only reduces your carbon footprint, but it also guarantees your industry will have professionally cleaned items.
Cleaning your facility should be done with reusable materials such as micro-fiber products. If employees are constantly using paper towels, this is not only creating a substantial amount of waste; the price of buying new paper towels can add up. Choose instead, an environmentally friendly and economical option, like micro-fiber cloths.
It’s quite simple to live sustainably by making a few changes in your routine. Reducing waste and using reusable materials can give your company a competitive advantage. With the green movement more prominent than ever, why not make some small changes to ensure your company is transparent in their sustainability efforts?
Pro Tip: Be part of a positive change in 2019 by reducing waste with reusable linens.
