Less is more… especially when it comes to plastic!
It’s probably fair to say that the words ‘disinfect’ and ‘sanitise’ have been heard or read more times in 2020 than in any other year! Because of the coronavirus pandemic, these words are top of mind and people are also looking to disinfect and sanitise more often and more thoroughly right now.
Some individuals, particularly those who are concerned about controlling coronavirus, find it tempting to throw everything (including the kitchen sink!) into making sure their home or work environment is as germ and virus free as possible.
Increased and intensive disinfecting using ordinary bleaches, gels and potentially hazardous chemicals can take its toll in lots of ways. These products can be expensive, pungent and abrasive.
In addition to cost-implications and potential health hazards, there are long term environmental effects, such as sustainability, packaging waste and animal cruelty, to consider.
In these new times, where the emphasis on thorough cleaning is heightened, demand for a greater volume of traditional cleaning products means additional packaging and single-use plastic bottles are filling homes and places of work.
Solupak cleaning products require less storage space and come in tubs and re-sealable plastic bags for easy storage and ‘controlled portion’ dispensing.
Where we do use plastic in our UK manufacturing plant, we use a Bottle 4 Life system that means that there are no single use plastic bottles being used here – all bottles are screen printed and can be used multiple times. If and when they do reach the end of their lifespan, they are fully recyclable.
We are often asked if our water soluble cleaning products actually disinfect effectively. Our cleaners and disinfectants conform to EN 1276 standards – this means they officially do! Our non-chlorine disinfectant is an effective decontaminate that works for all areas and works against all bacteria. It’s also phosphate free and biodegradable. The disinfectant dries quickly to leave surfaces bright, smear free and lemon scented.
We know from speaking to our customers that they want total peace of mind that they are helping to keep their families and colleagues safe. Now, more than ever, it’s our passion to facilitate safe and effective cleaning that is doing just that, with the added bonus of being eco-friendly, cruelty free and leaving a lower carbon footprint.
