Plant a tree with Jangrow

If you visited us at The Cleaning Show earlier this year, you’ll have seen a sneak preview of ‘Jangrow’, our innovative tree planting campaign. We are so excited to announce that after months of careful planning, Jangrow has now come to fruition!

This initiative will see us gifting tree plugs to our customers, which can then be planted in their own grounds or surroundings to capture carbon from the atmosphere, act as a carbon sink, and, ultimately, help create a better planet.

Twice a year, our depots across the network will deliver Silver Birch cell trees to selected customers, based on qualifying criteria. This includes their sales and order history, as well as any new or existing orders placed for sustainable products.

Together with the infant cell trees, we will be sending full instructions, plus a QR code for customers to scan once the tree has been planted. This will log the site and date of planting, so we can track the total number of Jangrow trees planted across the UK & Ireland. Look out for a map highlighting the locations of the planted trees, together with the total carbon captured, coming soon to

Silver Birches make the perfect choice for this scheme because:
✓ they are sturdy.
✓ can be planted anywhere across the country.
✓ have an urban life expectancy of 75 years.
✓ capture 3224Kg of CO2 at maturity.
✓ Grow at a rate of 50cm per year.
✓ reach full maturity around 15 years.

Trees absorb CO2 and restore biodiversity. They clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, prevent soil erosion and flooding, and give life to wildlife and house ecosystems. All of which make for a better planet! We can’t wait to watch these trees grow and see the total amount of carbon captured over the coming years.

Say hello to our new zero waste foaming hand wash sachets!

It’s the season when sniffles, sneezes and seasonal viruses rear their ugly heads and good hand hygiene becomes even more critical to prevent their spread. So, what better time to introduce you to our brand-new Enviro Foam Hand Wash Sachets?

Designed exclusively for foaming pump dispensers and bottles, they are not only effective and gentle to skin, but have been developed with the environment in mind too. Housed in clever soluble sachets, these products are zero waste – minimising the landfill burden and avoiding the use of plastic.

They offer controlled dosage too. Each sachet contains the correct amount so there is no waste or overuse – saving you money. And, since there is less packaging, there are lower transportation costs, lower emissions, plus a reduced need for storage space.

Perfect for use in all washroom facilities, the formulation is kind to skin and boasts a delicate floral blossom fragrance.

Each individual sachet makes one litre of solution. They are incredibly easy to use:

– Simply fill a clean container with one litre of water (Jangro Enviro Foam Hand Wash Refill Mixing Containers are perfect for this part!)
– Add one sachet for every litre of water.
– Replace cap and shake vigorously.
– Pour the mixed solution into a foam dispenser or bottle, like the Jangro Enviro Pump Dispensers and Bottles, which are also available to purchase.

Ready for Recycle Week?

Recycle Week 2023 is back, taking place from 16 – 22 October 2023. Now in its 20th year, the event, organised by WRAP, aims to bring the nation together, to recycle more of the right things, more often.

Despite recent reports that the government may be reconsidering its green commitments, it is clear that recycling is the door to a circular economy. As an industry that relies on plastic containers to safely house detergents, disinfectants and other fluids, plastic equipment to perform cleaning duties, plus cardboard boxes to contain solutions and transport products, we have a responsibility to strengthen our recycling efforts.

Recycling is the one of the easiest ways to start being more sustainable. It is something we, at Jangro, are passionate about – both in our own operations at head office and at our depots. We also help and encourage our customers to do the same and increase their own sustainability ratings. So, here are three reminders of how we can help you recycle more easily this national recycling week and beyond.


An initiative for the recycling of old plastic cleaning tools and buckets that are worn or need to be replaced. Instead of disposing of them, our customers can simply return them to their nearest Jangro depot or arrange for items to be picked up by one of our friendly Jangro distributors. We then connect with the recycling and manufacturing companies in our supply chain to have them recycled – keeping this ‘would-be’ waste in circulation, transforming it into new products, and reducing the amount of virgin plastic needed.


Earlier this year, we introduced new, sustainable brown boxes, marking a change from our previous branded outer cartons. These are emblazoned with RRR, highlighting our ‘Return, Reuse, Recycle’ scheme:

Return: Should customers want to return their empty Jangro boxes, they can do so either when their local distributor is delivering an order or drop them off at the
warehouse at their own convenience.

Reuse: We are encouraging our customers to reuse the cardboard cartons as much as possible to help save waste. Boxes are always handy to package goods securely,
for example.

Recycle: When the box eventually comes to the end of its life, it can be recycled along with other paper and cardboard waste.


We are so proud of this vegan range of cleaning solutions. Not only do our formulations protect the planet, whilst providing impeccable performance, but ALL packaging is recycled and recyclable.

“Plastic is a scourge which blights our streets and beautiful countryside”

Says Rebecca Pow, British Politician and Environment Minister. Single-use cutlery, plates, trays and polystyrene containers are now banned in the UK – the Government’s significant shift in regulations is a much-needed step moving forward that will affect many of us.

Every day, millions of single-use plastic items are discarded, polluting our environment and harming wildlife. It’s time we acted and reduce our plastic footprint. According to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, people across England use 2.7 billion items of mostly plastic single-use cutlery and 721 million single-use plates every year, but only 10% of these are recycled. If 2.7 billion pieces of cutlery (approx. 15cm) were lined up, they would go round the world over 8.5 times – these figures are an alarming cause of concern for the whole nation.

A huge amount of this plastic is still making it into the sea. Who can forget Sir David Attenborough’s reaction on Blue Planet 2 to an albatross chick feeding on plastic, not fish, and one of the chicks being killed by a plastic toothpick it has eaten? Or the images we’ve all seen of stranded whales with mountains of plastic in their stomach?

This is why, at Jangro, we view single-use plastic items as one of the most dangerous threats to our environments and consequently are working hard to offer a wide range of sustainable solutions to help our customers. This includes our disposable food packaging, cutlery and drinkware made from recycled materials, and which are also compostable, biodegradable, or recyclable.
