Green Policy

As the Gallagher family embarks on their fifth generation of leadership, one can’t help to think what will the next five generations bring?  We hold ourselves responsible in our role to make sure that the environment holds the same, if not greater splendor as it has for the previous generations.

Our goal is to operate in a sustainable manner that will preserve the environment for generations to come. These practices are part of our daily business as we continue to seek out even more advanced means for environmental stewardship. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This includes participating in Consumers Energy's Demand Response Program reducing our energy consumption during peak usage times, and achieving sustainability certifications like TRSA's Clean Green certification.

Clean Green Certification

Gallagher Uniform is Clean Green TRSA Certified! This means we uphold the highest standards in environmentally friendly laundry practices set by the Textile Rental Service Association (TRSA). To achieve this certification, we demonstrated our commitment to best management practices in areas like energy and water efficiency, use of eco-friendly detergents, wastewater treatment, recycling programs, preventative maintenance, and more when TRSA inspected our facility to confirm we meet or exceed sustainability criteria. The Clean Green certification proves our credibility and dedication to operating in the most environmentally responsible way possible in the laundering industry!
