The Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) has announced that Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply is the first company in the United States to achieve certification in the TRSA Clean Green Certification Program.

Clean Green Certification recognizes companies that demonstrate responsible leadership in sustainability and conservation to protect the environment. The program acknowledges textile service company's continuing commitment to improving efficiencies in water and energy conservation and adoption of best management practices for reusing, reclaiming and recycling resources. A business that receives uniform rentals, linen services, floor mats and other reusable textiles laundered by a Clean Green facility can point to the certification as evidence that these were washed, dried and finished with techniques selected to maximize sustainability.
