Environmental Responsibility

Rent – Reuse – Recycle

Renting is an effortless way to reduce the unnecessary purchase of disposables and other packaged items that consumers frequently use when entertaining. The phrase Reduce – Reuse – Recycle has become an integral part of how we live on the west coast and forces us to “re-think” how we do things everyday within our operation. We feel it is our responsibility to continue evaluating our day to day operations and efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Recycling

We have established a successful recycling program within our operation for cardboard, paper, cans, bottles, and plastic. Ultimately our goal is to attempt to eliminate waste entirely.

Energy Conservation

We utilize high efficiency dishwashing and laundry systems in our plant. These machines dramatically reduce the amount of water and detergent needed to meet health and safety standards. All detergents used in the commercial cleaning of our equipment and within our laundry are rated eco- friendly by our suppliers.

Packaging

Over the past few years we have dramatically decreased the need for plastic within our systems and utilize reusable plastic boxes and bins for storing and shipping our rental inventory. We have a system in place that eliminates the need for plastic bags on glass racks or when packaging linens. When needed we use 100% biodegradable plastic bags.  All soft plastic that is returned to our facility is recycled. 

Pursuit to be "paper-free"

We strive to provide a paperless warehouse and office environment.Through the use of i-pads we are able to maintain this reduction in printed material and increased efficiency.

We are pleased with the eco-friendly practices we have introduced but are aware that there is still more that we can do. As individuals and as a company, we feel it is our responsibility to work towards a more environmental future.
