Offering one more way organizations can go green, Cintas Corporation has introduced its new AR Red Suiting Collection. Made with DuPont Sorona renewably sourced fiber, the fabric reduces carbon dioxide emissions used in the manufacturing process by as much as 63 percent. The collection was created in collaboration with the well-known Austin Reed brand, and consists of options for both men and women.
 
“Cintas is committed to identifying sustainable options that not only lessen the impact of our manufacturing processes, but also allow our customers to reduce their environmental footprint,” said Melanie Boyle, Manager of Sustainability, Cintas Corporation. “Our partnership with Austin Reed has resulted in environmentally friendly and fashionable garments that blend functionality, comfort and innovation.”
 
In addition to wool and recycled polyester, the AR Red Suiting Collection is made with DuPont Sorona, an eco-friendly, plant-based fiber made with renewable, naturally occurring starch. Garments made with Sorona are soft, strong and they dry quickly. Sorona also helps fabrics stretch comfortably, stay wrinkle-free and retain their shape. Cintas received an Image of the Year award from the Image Apparel Institute for the collection designed for Hyatt which included the AR Red Suiting line.
 
“We are very excited about using DuPont Sorona for the first time,” said Kristin Sharp, Director of Design, Cintas Corporation. “Thanks to advancements in fabric technology, this collection provides employees with tailored, breathable and durable garments while being environmentally conscious. The AR Red Suiting Collection is an excellent addition to the overall Cintas portfolio of workplace apparel.”
 
Garments in the AR Red Suiting Collection include the Grafton Blazer, Celeste Blazer, Kensington Modern Slacks and Devoe Skirt for women and Lenox Blazer and Crosby Pants for men. In order to keep wearers cool and comfortable, the blazers are fully lined with breathable AEROCOOL technology and feature multiple inside pockets for added functionality. The collection is offered in a full range of sizes, including petite.
