UNIVATOR Award goes to EcoGeneration

Cintas Corporation announced it is the winner of a 2011 UNIVATOR Award for its EcoGeneration by Cintas scrub collection in the “Eco-Friendly Innovation” category. The UNIVATOR Awards, sponsored by UniformMarket News, honor the leading ideas, creations, services and innovators which have influenced the uniform industry over the past year. This is the third consecutive year Cintas has won this prestigious award.

"Benefits to the environment notwithstanding, the real test of any uniform program is measured by the style, fit and comfort of the garments,” said Rick Levine, editor, UniformMarket News. “In these areas, Cintas hits a home run.”

The “Eco-Friendly Innovation” award is given to apparel lines that use progressive methods to make environmentally friendly clothing. Qualifications for the award are based upon reducing energy, pollutant and waste during the production process.

EcoGeneration Cintas scrubs use recycled plastic bottles diverted from landfills. The bottles are broken down and woven into a wearable, comfortable fabric constructed of a recycled polyester-cotton blend. For every scrub outfit, seven plastic bottles are saved from landfills.

The healthcare industry has more than 13 million workers, making the positive environmental impact for this product potentially huge. Recycling plastic fibers saves 33 percent of the energy consumed compared to manufacturing virgin fiber and reduces carbon emissions by 47 percent.

“It is a great honor to be chosen for the UNIVATOR Award,” said Brent Schafer, Vice President of Healthcare, Cintas. “Our vision to empower caregivers with innovative solutions is carried out with an introduction such as the EcoGeneration scrubs an environmentally responsible garment with excellent wearability.”
