The Textile Rental Association (TRSA) has recertified Northwest Healthcare Linen, the Bellingham, Washington-based independent medical launderer, as Clean Green, reflecting the company’s continued dedication to operational efficiency and sustainability.

The certification quantifies linen, uniform and facility services’ environmentally friendly performance by confirming an operation launders within TRSA-designated water and energy use thresholds and verifies use of best management practices (BMPs) in line with the ASTM International environmental laundering standard.

Crescent Laundry achieved Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification in 2014, proving its dedication to infection prevention through compliance with recognised industry standards for processing healthcare textiles as verified by onsite inspections and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

“I applaud Northwest Healthcare Linen for their ongoing sustainability efforts and maintaining the highest standards in their production and delivery operations,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO. “Meeting all the criteria for certification is not easy, but the company is committed to industry-leading processes and technologies.”
