Through Pacific Linen’s business model, we aim to contribute to the sustainable development of society and that of the environment with which we interact.
We are committed to the 3R’s principle – Reduce Reuse Recycle.
We REDUCE the amount of energy we use by utilising energy efficient machinery for example by using high spin washers to reduce the amount of drying energy used. Most of our textiles are polyester which uses less water in the wash cycle and, as a result, needs less heat in the drying and ironing cycle. Difficult stains are removed with spot-cleaning using bio-degradable chemicals like Citrus cleaner that reduce the chemical out-put from the washing process.
When table linen is damaged or has stains that can’t be removed, where possible we cut them down to the nearest usable size and REUSE them in our rental stock.
The majority of our waste is sent to a RECYCLE facility, including paper, polythene and cardboard
