How Hotel Laundry Impacts the Environment and What You Can Do to Change That

When it comes to enacting change for the benefit of the environment, there's a problem called the "attitude-behavior gap." Basically, it's the difference between thinking something is a good idea and volunteering to do it yourself. It's the reason we see studies with results that tell us 63% of people in the U.S. are concerned about climate change, but only 47% think the government should do anything about it.   Read More

Laundry Sustainability: What It Means and How to Get There

How do we define laundry sustainability? Let's start with what it isn't. Sustainable laundry is not simply using cold water in wash cycles or low heat when drying. It isn't hotels asking guests to re-use towels. It isn't commercial launderers switching to a more eco-friendly detergent type. Truly sustainable laundry is much more than that.   Read More

California Incentives to Help Dry Cleaners Move from Perc

The state of California has always been a leader in protecting the environment. And they continued that proud heritage recently with the creation of an incentive program to assist dry cleaners in phasing out the use of perchloroethylene (also known as “perc”). The solvent and likely human carcinogen, is widely used for dry-cleaning fabrics but is being barred for use for all dry cleaners by the year 2023. To aid dry cleaners in the transition, the Air Resources Board of California will provide a $10,000 grant incentive to dry cleaners who remove their perc machine and replace it with alternative non-toxic and non-smog forming technologies such as water-based and CO2 cleaning systems.  Read More

How Polymer Beads Make Commercial Laundry Sustainable

Water is one of the most precious resources on planet Earth. Without water, humanity cannot exist. Water is so integral to our bodies that, according to the USGS water science school, “In adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water.” That’s right, most of your body weight is water. Just to survive and be healthy, you need to drink about 2 – 3 liters of water every day. This makes clean drinking water a critical resource for human survival. Yet, as reported by water.org, roughly “750 million people lack access to clean water” and “more than 840,000 people die each year from a water related disease.”  Read More

Can this be true? Water Shortages in the Caribbean?

Given the press coverage, everyone should be familiar with the epic drought currently affecting California. But how many are aware of the one facing the Caribbean? While drought is not an unexpected thing in arid California, it is surprising that a range of tropical islands famed for rainforests, hurricanes, and over 100 inches of rainfall would suffer from a lack of drinking water - but it’s true. Despite being surrounded on all sides by water, it’s all saltwater and most islands in the Caribbean are largely dependent on rainfall for their drinking water. This amount of rainfall varies widely among the islands but many of them rely on “feast or famine” patterns between the wet and dry season.  Read More
