Xeros' Mission to Make Laundry Sustainable: What You Want to Know

Laundry as we know it is experiencing a wave of change—a nearly waterless wave. In the modern world, we associate cleanliness with success. Showing up to a job interview with a coffee spill from yesterday on your shirt isn’t acceptable. Clean hotel linens are essential to a quality guest experience. And so on.  Yet cleaning fabrics comes with a cost. We are throwing millions of gallons of water and detergent down the drain. Because laundry will always be a staple of society in one form or another, it's our responsibility as global citizens to revolutionize this traditionally wasteful process.  That's where Xeros comes in.  Read More

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

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
