Scale Of Sodexo’s Recycled Napkin Program Saves Resources
Sodexo says that after one year, its switch to recycled napkins in 1,300 foodservice operations nationwide has resulted in saving nearly ten million gallons of water, more than 23,000 trees, half a million gallons of oil and five and a half million kilowatts of energy.
Energy is saved because less power is used to recycle paper products than to create them from virgin material – enough was saved through the napkin program to power 600 U.S. homes for a year.
In bringing its Xpressnap napkin program to its client sites the company says it creates additional environmental savings. The program has resulted in a 25 to 50 percent reduction in the actual number of paper napkins used because new dispensers dispense a single napkin at a time.
