Republic Master Chefs is Clean Green Certified

Clean Green certified linen, uniform and facility services operations meet quality standards for effectiveness in conserving resources and minimizing environmental impact. Customers that use Clean Green certified companies to supply, launder and maintain linens, uniforms, mats and other reusable textiles can be assured that their provider maximizes sustainable practices.

Large-scale laundries earn Clean Green standards by using high-capacity washing, drying and wrinkle-removal equipment that improve efficiency.

To obtain the certification, laundries must document water and energy reduction and deploy best management practices (BMPs) such as:

– Recovering heat from drained hot water and heat dispersed from the process of warming water
– Recapturing drained water from rinses for reuse
– Using environmentally friendly detergents
– Removing solids and liquids from wastewater
– Installing solar energy and energy-efficient lighting
– Recycling programs
– Re-routing trucks to save vehicle fuel
– Implementing preventative maintenance and spill prevention plans
