Business With Integrity
We believe, that protecting the environment, conserving our limited resources and reducing our carbon footprint is fundamental to doing business with integrity. We are proud to incorporate award winning environmentally responsible best practices in our operations. We’re fortunate to live and work in beautiful sunny South Florida Coast. Respect for nature and sound business practices are integrated to benefit the environment and the customers we serve.
Our business is green at its core concept!
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. These fundamental practices—relatively new to the popular notion of responsible corporate citizenship—have been at the core of Gold Coast Linen Services operations for more than 70 years. Our business is based on recycling reusable textiles. We compete directly against one-time use disposable towels, gowns, sheets and garments. The products we rent are re-used many times over, greatly reducing the amount of refuse that goes into landfills and reducing the volume of materials that must be manufactured and shipped.
Environmental Stewardship Principals
We focus our environmental Stewardship in 4 areas
1. Resource Conservation
2. Waste Minimization
3. Purchasing products made from recycled goods.
4. Minimizing Fleet impacts
Some other specific measures we take to reduce our burden on the environment include:
- Software used to optimize our deliveries to conserve fuel
- Monthly analysis of chemical usage to prevent waste
- Recycling of hangers
- We use high efficiency lighting to reduce energy consumption
- Use of high-efficiency boiler and dryers
Reduce. Re-use. Recycle.
Our waste stream is separated, contained, minimized and recycled or disposed of properly and responsibly.
When our wastewater is finally discharged into the sewer system, it is verified by rigorous testing to meet county and state standards. Based on the processes we use our wastewater effluent is well below our required limits.
We use only NPE and Phosphate free detergents eliminating harmful wastewater byproducts from our wastewater stream.
