Meeting our Zero Waste Obligations with Intent
At Bistara Linen Co. we have a zero-waste policy, which is at the core of our business model, and we are responsible to our customers as well as to the planet. We believe that it’s vital to source the most ecologically produced linen, and then to further refine that zero-waste strategy through reuse, and recycling. Another aspect of our zero-waste policy is to reduce packaging, in order to ensure that we are not responsible for putting non-biodegradable packaging into the ground.
