Best practice in sustainable cleaning

Every chemical or biological cleaning agent has some impact on the environment. And while the biggest effect that cleaning products have comes from the chemicals which they contain, the packaging they come in and how they are shipped also affect their environmental rating.

Jangro has developed an environmentally-friendly range of cleaning agents, including Enviro Concentrates, designed to reduce users’ carbon footprints. As well as using green cleaning formulations, such as bacterial washroom cleaners, the Enviro Concentrates range comprises high concentration and low dosage products, and the trigger spray bottle format makes it even easier to know how much of a product you are using.

Responsible usage and dosage control are key elements in reducing the environmental impact of any cleaning product. Designed to be very economical, Jangro also provides guidance on dilution rates – particularly useful when tackling dirtier conditions.

Prevent wastage

The idea is to prevent wastage through over-use of products, while getting the job done to a high standard. And the Enviro Concentrates range also boasts pleasant fragrances, proving that going green does not have to involve any kind of compromise on end-user experience.

Meanwhile, all Jangro products are now labelled under the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. Where hazardous chemical cleaning agents are present, red diamond-shaped hazard pictograms indicate this.

Jangro also uses the Wright Environmental Impact Rating (WEIR) system, which considers environmental issues during the selection process of raw materials, the manufacturing process and packaging.

The system also looks at the impact of the water used in the product, the impact of its use, its pH level, and the energy used for manufacture and shipping. The product in question receives a score for each of these criteria, and the lower the score, the lower its overall impact on the environment under WEIR.

Product lifecycle

This means that as well as considering cleaning products containing less harmful chemicals, we are looking at the lifecycle of the product, its packaging, and its overall carbon footprint. This allows us to compare many different variables when we ask ourselves whether there is another, more sustainable alternative to a product we are considering.

The green revolution isn’t just a nice slogan to talk to clients about, it is crucial for the wellbeing of our planet and should be considered a cornerstone of any forward-thinking business.
