When pressed for an answer, not a single reader of The Refinishing Touch blog felt that the government, higher education or hotel industry is doing enough to improve sustainable standards. Each Wednesday, we utilize our blog poll to connect with our readers, and gain insights into the topics that matter most to us – and to you.
The three sectors in which The Refinishing Touch implements furniture asset management solutions – higher education, government, and hospitality – are certainly working to incorporate green initiatives, materials and practices into day-to-day business strategies, but despite these efforts, there is more to be done to improve the high environmental impacts of these industries.
We were interested to see how you felt about the sustainable progress being made in businesses today. So we inquired whether or not you think the government, hospitality and higher education industries are doing all that they can to be environmentally friendly. In response to each question, poll participants responded with resounding ‘NO’s’. It’s apparent that as consumers, we are becoming more aware of environmental concerns, and are seeking to support businesses that are taking action to combat these concerns.
It gives The Refinishing Touch a great sense of accomplishment to know that our services provide an important step in moving toward a more budget-conscious, sustainable future, especially as industry leaders continue to implement best practice solutions, including our furniture refinishing, remanufacturing and re-upholstery services.
We plan to pose this difficult question again in the future – whether industries have done enough to improve sustainable standards – and hope to receive a different answer and sustainable solutions begin to take hold and consumers continue to demand more environmentally friendly services.
