Mission Linen did not return calls for comment, but according to the Engelharts' lawyer, Fania Davis, the linen company interprets that language more narrowly and is suing for the estimated lost profit. The Engelharts offered a settlement, and the company turned them down, so the fight continues, but the Engelharts still think it's unfair.
"We were more committed to green than to continuing to bleach in ever-increasing numbers," Terces said.
Matthew added that the point isn't to cast Mission Linen in a bad light but to bring attention to an important need in the restaurant community for more environmentally friendly laundry options.
"We're not doing this for us," Matthew said. "It's for everyone, our children and grandchildren." *
