A professional cold water laundry system that promises to reduce commercial washer energy needs by up to 75 per cent has been named a 2015 Green Edison Awards silver winner.
Procter & Gamble’s division, P&G Professional has announced that the Tide® Professional Coldwater Laundry System has been named a 2015 Award Winner by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™.
According to a release, the laundry system enables hotel facilities to reduce the energy needed to heat the water in a commercial washer by as much as 75 per cent, and to reduce the water used in a commercial washer by up to 40 per cent. The Tide Professional Coldwater System was recognised as the Silver Edison Green Award™ winner at the annual Edison Awards in New York.
The Edison Awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognise innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy. Specifically, the Edison Green Award is designed as a platform to recognise efforts by an organisation to reduce carbon footprint, create Green Collar jobs through new innovation methods and improve community health and self-sufficiency.
“We’re proud to receive the Silver Edison Green Award for our Tide Professional Coldwater System,” said Carrie Rathod, Brand Manager, P&G Professional.
“Tide Professional Coldwater offers a host of environmental benefits to hotel operators and guests. It’s designed to use significantly less water at colder temperatures compared to traditional on-premise laundry systems, yet still delivers the clean, white, soft linens and towels customers and guests expect from Tide. This helps hotels reduce their energy and water costs, as well as reduce reliance on these limited resources, which is increasingly important as more of the country is afflicted by drought.”
