Green tick as janitorial company goes green

A Staffordshire janitorial supplies company is helping customers fulfil their sustainability agenda by supplying a range of products which have minimal impact on the environment and reduce plastic waste.

Newly established Moorland Contract Janitorial, part of Moorland Contract Group, is supplying chemical products from Evans Vanodine who are market leaders in environmentally friendly cleaning products.

Evans Vanodine, who celebrated 100 years in business in 2019, have devised their own unique system for assessing the overall environmental impact of a product, considering the formulation, manufacture, usage and disposal of the product. They call the scheme the ‘Wright Environmental Impact Rating’ (W.E.I.R.), named after their research scientist, Sandra Wright who devised it.

Moorland Contract Group director, Suzanne Davy said: “Every Evans Vanodine product is analysed using the W.E.I.R. system and awarded a score for each of the seven criteria. The lower the overall score, the lower the impact on the environment. Products achieving a low impact rating are identified by a green tick logo on the product label.”

Many of the range of concentrated cleaning products now come in refillable five-litre containers which are decanted into one litre bottles which can be diluted to fill up to 100 refillable spray bottles. When the five-litre container is empty it can be sent back to Evans Vanodine to refill, cutting reusable plastic waste effectively to zero.

Jackie Walker, business development manager at Moorland Contract janitorial added: “We are totally committed to Evans Vanodine products due to both the quality of the products and to their green credentials.

“Our customers are responding very positively as we are able to provide a sustainability solution in addition to a cleaning solution.

“Although we have not been around as long as Evans Vanodine, we share the same values in being a family run company that puts the customer first by providing the best service whilst minimising environmental impact.

“We can now offer existing and new customers a complete cleaning service where we have 100 per cent confidence in the quality of service and quality and integrity of the cleaning materials we use.”
