Valet Services Laundry™ commitment to Go Green extends beyond the environment

Valet Services Laundry™ commitment to Go Green extends beyond the environment.

In addition to our efforts for keeping our environment and workplace clean and in keeping true to our belief of health and wellness for all living things, as of January 1, 2011 we have become a 100% smoke free facility. It is our hope that, while we can not control the lifestyle and habits of our personnel, this new policy will make the all around work environment a healthier place by reducing second hand smoke and the amount of cigarette butts on the grounds. By implementing this Smoke Free Environment Policy, we feel we are not only reducing the quantity of pollutants in the air, our grounds and water ways but in a small way increasing the health and quality of life of our associates.

Facts about Smoking

  • High vulnerabilities to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), respiratory problems such as asthma and delayed lung growth
  • Second-hand smoke is a carcinogen or cancer-causing substance
  • Heart disease risk of 25-30% and a lung cancer risk of 20-30% for each non-smoker exposed.
  • Approximately 4000 chemicals are present in cigarettes, which are breathed out and released in the atmosphere
  • Cigarette butts left on the ground will take approximately 25-26 years to decompose
  • Every day millions of cigarette butts are left on the ground with the majority ending up in lakes and rivers, polluting our waters and killing many animals
