Prudential Overall Supply, a Clean Green Certified Company, Commemorates Earth Day 2018

IRVINE, CA – April 22, 2018 -  Prudential Overall Supply, a leading company in the reusable textile industry, is commemorating Earth Day 2018.

U.S. Clean Green certified laundries are marking Earth Day 2018 by commending the 250,000+ businesses across the nation that use such certified operations for linen, uniform and facility services.

Selecting a Clean Green certified company reflects concern for maximizing sustainability in a business supply chain. Private- and public-sector organizations that choose such a provider are learning that how their reusable textiles are supplied, laundered and maintained is a factor in their environmental impact.

Clean Green operations use a third party (TRSA) to verify their conservation practices and quantify their compliance with water and energy use thresholds.
Laundered, reusable linens, uniforms, towels, mats and other products provided by the linen, uniform and facility services enhance businesses’ image and provide clean, safe environments for their employees and patrons.

Nearly 50 of the industry’s companies are Clean Green certified, serving business customers from more than 150 locations combined nationwide. These launderers work with customers to connect the certification to their efforts to minimize their carbon footprint. Certified operators report to TRSA that customers and prospects ask them about green laundry initiatives. These include environmentally friendly wash chemistry, water reuse and recycling, recapturing heat from hot water headed down the drain and operating efficient delivery routes.

“They are far more likely to inquire about the sum of environmentally friendly practices as opposed to the parts,” observes TRSA President and CEO Joseph Ricci of the industry’s customers.”

Linen and uniform services conserve water and energy best by using high-capacity, high-efficiency equipment, he pointed out, controlling expenses and thereby aiding efforts to keep service pricing under control. “It is the perfect sustainable business model. Business interests and environmental concerns align. Improving efficiencies reduces costs and reduces the impact on the environment,” Ricci says.
