While many companies that have utilized a solid uniform rental company know full well the many benefits that such a service can provide, there is an additional incentive that can benefit the environment itself. By the very practice of using and maintaining a specific number of regular uniform outfits, a single individual is putting into place the “green” initiative of reusing materials to keep low their personal “footprint” upon the environment.
The Virtue of Reusing
In general, the very premise of a consumer society where purchasing large amounts of clothing per individual is negative to the environment’s overall eco-health. When that is amplified by the number of employees within a given company, the list of raw materials can become staggering. By its nature, instilling a uniform for the purposes of practicing the “reuse/recycle” philosophy is a major eco-friendly concept that you can be proud of. Beyond that, each time a uniform is laundered it requires the use of detergent, and hot water which requires the use of energy to heat it. Now all garments have to be dried requiring lots of energy use. For 10 employees working 5 days each would have 10 garments at the end of the week, 5 shirts and 5 pants. Each garment is approx. 1 lb. creating 10 lbs of laundry/employee, 10 employees x 10 lbs = 100 lbs of laundry. Now which is more efficient, washing these garments in 10 different washers, drying them in 10 different dryers, or laundering and drying all of these garments as a portion of a single, larger commercial laundry load? Obviously the latter.
