Environmental sustainability is a cornerstone of our culture.


Since 2007, we’ve cut energy consumption by a third and reduced our fresh water usage by more than 65%. How refreshing is that?

Ecotex laundry processes minimize environmental impact using technology and industry best practices for reusing, reclaiming and recycling resources.

For the past eight years Ecotex has implemented state-of-the-art procedures saving over 60 million gallons of water every year.

These environmental achievements have earned Ecotex certification as a Clean Green® company by the TRSA.

At Ecotex we’ve invested in:

  • Heat recapture technologies for our boiler and wastewater systems;
  • Proprietary water reuse systems; plastics recycling;
  • NPE- free detergents;
  • Low temperature wash chemistry:
  • Process reviews that decrease our environmental footprint.

Our results are benchmarked in the nationwide Laundry Environmental Stewardship Program. LaundryESP® is a voluntary compliance program between the industry’s Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

In 2014 Ecotex received the Rotary Environmental Leadership Award from the Rotary Club for its success as a Water Saver between 2009 through 2013.

We’re proud to make our world a better place to live. Learn more about our Environmental Leadership.

The math is simple — 60 disposable gowns or one reusable gown?


Ecotex supplies reusable surgical linens, because our future is not disposable.

Ecotex provides reusable linens to healthcare systems around North America.
