Global hospitality and vacation ownership company refines program, process and adds environmentally friendly apparel
Las Vegas, NV (October 21, 2010) –- Diamond Resorts International® (Diamond), a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, continues its global commitment toward brand strength and sustainability with its continued Cintas apparel partnership and the introduction of the RegenerationTM front desk and resort manager suiting program which is made with eco-friendly fabric.
Made with ECOGIR® recycled fabric, Cintas, partnering with Bagir, made these garments with 100 percent recycled fabric to help divert landfill waste, save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. Each suit is made from approximately 25 recycled 2-liter plastic bottles and reduces water usage by as much as 90 percent. Plus, they are home launderable to save even more energy and resources, saving employees as much as $1,000 annually.
Diamond Resorts International® continues to work closely with its suppliers and business partners to find sustainable solutions, promote measurable improvement and help build eco-awareness at managed and operated sites worldwide. On the recommitment efforts of the full uniform apparel program with Cintas, Stephen J. Cloobeck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Diamond Resorts International®, said, “Globally, we strive for full brand standardization in our uniform apparel program and when Cintas introduced their Regeneration line, we were excited to learn of their product improvements and sustainable actions as well as learn more about Cintas’ overall social responsibility and their commitment to supplier diversity, social compliance, corporate sustainability and product safety. The Diamond community prides itself on building lasting trust-based relationships with team members and our owners, members and guests worldwide, and we look forward to growing our ongoing commitment with Cintas.”
