Front door professionals get 'green' option
Apr '11
In order to help hotels further reduce their environmental footprint, Cintas Corporation introduced its first eco-friendly garment options for bellmen, doormen and other front door professionals in hotels. The new apparel, made of recycled polyester, wool and Lycra, further enhances Cintas' already extensive EcoGeneration collection and enables hotels to go “green” without compromising fashion or comfort.

“Staff members who greet guests when they enter a property really set the tone for their overall perception of the brand,” said Todd McKeown, Vice President of Hospitality at Cintas. “With our new sustainable apparel for bellmen and doormen, hotels can leave an impression that's unified and professional—as well as environmentally-responsible.”

The new, sustainable garments for bellmen and doormen include the Tailored Signature Jacket, the Cobra Jacket and the Carnaby Shirt-Collar Jacket. Like Cintas' Momentum Suiting Collection designed for front desk staff, the garments are made using an innovative, certified process that converts recycled plastic bottles into fabric. The Tailored Signature Jacket and Cobra Jacket are made using a 54/42/4 recycled polyester/wool/Lycra blend while the Carnaby Shirt-Collar Jacket is a 60/40 combination of recycled polyester and polyester.

By using recycled fibers instead of creating new fibers, Cintas significantly reduces the environmental impact of the garments by diverting landfill waste, saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. In addition, each garment can be laundered at home, which eliminates the need for professional dry cleaning and the harmful toxins and chemicals used in that process. It also can save up to $1,000 annually in dry cleaning costs per employee.

“Offering bellmen and doormen sustainable clothing options is not only good for the environment, it's good for business,” said Jamie Overbey, Director of Marketing at Cintas. “When employees feel good about their uniforms, their morale improves and so does the guest experience.”
