Cintas Corporation announced the addition of its popular Momentum Washable Suiting Collection to the “Sustainable Solutions” workplace apparel line. As Cintas' number one selling tailored collection, the Momentum collection has been reinvented as an eco-friendly alternative, maintaining its classic style but modernized to reduce its environmental impact. The stretch, wrinkle-resistant fabric is made using a 54/42/4 blend of recycled polyester, wool and Lycra. The recycled polyester is comprised of 13 recycled plastic water bottles, reducing energy used in the manufacturing process by up to 33 percent.

“Cintas is making strides to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Gretchen McIntyre, Cintas senior marketing manager. “By incorporating recyclable materials into our number one selling collection, we not only reduce our environmental impact, but provide hoteliers with solutions to improve the sustainability of their businesses.”

Machine-washable, Momentum reduces the use of toxins and chemicals used in the dry-cleaning process while saving employees approximately $1,000 each year in dry-cleaning costs. Available in black, charcoal and navy, the new Momentum line has been updated with a mesh-lining around the shoulders of the blazer for flexibility and added comfort.

“With this collection our customers get the best of all worlds,” said Donna Knechtel, product manager for Cintas. “They receive a garment with sophistication and long-wearing performance along with the reassurance that they are reducing the amount of waste going into our landfills and incinerators.”

Momentum joins an already extensive line of sustainable solutions for hotels from Cintas. Chemicals in Cintas' facility service solutions are Green Seal certified and distributed in chemical dispensing units that eliminate waste. In Cintas' 2009 fiscal year, Cintas' document management recycling program salvaged more than 4.36 million trees, 21.5 million gallons of oil, 769,000 cubic yards of landfill space and 1.8 billions gallons of water. Promotional products made of bamboo, recycled stainless steel and corn plastic are also available to hotels.
