Our industry is one of the original sustainable industries. Work uniform and textile re-using vs. disposing goes back to the turn of the 20th Century, and back when we were founded in 1921.
Sustainability was initially driven out of scarcity more so than a desire to take care of the environment. However, the textile rental industry has evolved, sustainability has replaced scarcity with a desire to protect the environment, treat byproducts and reduce costs. By comparison, if all work uniforms were cleaned in your home washer and dryer, you would use many times the water and detergent. Your garments wouldn't be nearly as clean and you would expose your home to high levels of contaminants.text
