Many people would identify spring as their favorite season of the year. Earth Day is a spring holiday which helps promote awareness about the environment and how people can help protect it. Hospitality manufacturers and other companies have increased sustainability and environmental measures over the years with many organic linens and other green products now being widely available. This blog will highlight some of the different types of green bedding products InnStyle offers and how the material in these products benefits the environment. This blog will also raise awareness about the importance of cutting back on packaging to reduce pollution.
Tencel is made from eucalyptus trees which can grow without pesticides and irrigation. Also known as lyocell, tencel is produced using environmentally friendly solvents. It is developed with the wood pulp of trees from specific tree farms. The bulk of the materials and chemicals used to break down the wood pulp can be collected and recycled with very little waste because it uses less land and water for production. Many people have said that tencel wrinkles less and breathes better than most cotton. InnStyle offers a sheet made from Tencel called 300 Tencel Solid Sheet Sets.
Recycled polyester is produced using existing plastic mainly from water bottles. It usually involves processing plastic into miniature, thin pieces which become melted and go through a process to become yarn or polyester fiber. This is beneficial because it gives plastic another use, and it won’t end up sitting in a land fill or endangering wildlife in the ocean, woods, etc. Recycled polyester reduces the amount of oil and natural gas needed to make new plastic which will help make the world less dependent on fossil fuels. A product developed with recycled polyester offered at InnStyle is the GR Quilted Blanket.
Linens Made from Bamboo
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant, it can grow to full size in just 3-4 months making it a very sustainable and renewable plant species. The process of harvesting the plant doesn’t require pesticides or chemicals which helps reduce pollution. Bamboo absorbs over double the amount of carbon dioxide compared to other trees and is also known to produce more oxygen than most other trees and plants. Bamboo has strong, sturdy roots which increases the stability of the soil and prevents erosion. It is 100% biodegradable so throwing out bamboo products will have not have a negative impact on the environment compared to other damaging products like plastic. InnStyle offers Bamboo 1 Blend Duvet and Sheet Sets in their green bedding section.
Cutting Back on Packaging
Packaging waste is a major contributor of municipal waste and is one of the primary concerns for businesses and their impact on the environment. The easiest way to relieve packaging concerns is to promote minimal packaging which will help reduce material costs and transportation costs since the dimensions will be more precise. A good idea is to use recyclable or reusable materials, such as leftover cardboard boxes, to store out-of-season linens or extra office supplies.
Also, properties can switch their amenities from mini bottles to large, reusable dispensers to help reduce plastic since plastic bottles won’t be getting thrown out in between each guest stay. It is always important to train staff members about the waste removal process developed by the company.
