Thoughtful sourcing is making its way into the hospitality industry. Starting with the first notches of the supply chain, companies are looking to create positive impacts on those that make
the products as well as those who receive them. This starts with training methodologies, waste disposal, and how manufacturers harness their energy for operations. Natural materials and the elimination of plastic packaging are changes that the entire chain can feel good about
, and hotel brands are adopting more products that embody this type of sourcing and creation. Mark Kelleher
, a director of marketing for a global textiles manufacturer and distributor, says that the industry as a whole “is working to incorporate technologies derived from wicking and cooling techniques.” Along with braiding, weaving, winding, and twisting techniques
, different solutions are engineered to match the markets in which they are needed.
