Its no secret that the use of single use plastics has skyrocketed in the past 40 years. We produce over 60 million tons of plastic a year. 11 million tons of that plastic ends up in the oceans every year, adding to an already whopping 200 million tons of plastic that circulate in the marine environments. Only 5% of all plastics are recycled each year, while 14 million tons end up in landfills. It can be hard to make environmentally conscience decisions when single use plastics are so ingrained in our societies now. What does that mean for our environment? The outlook isn’t good unless we decide to come together and make more sustainable choices. But, this isn’t a think piece on the deterioration of our environment. This is an article about hope and making conscience decisions as business owners. SIVAD PPE has teamed up with EnvirOx to try and make a dent in that those crazy waste numbers. Here’s how:
WHAT IS A PLASTIC FOOTPRINT?
First it’s important to know what exactly is a plastic footprint. A plastic footprint calculates how much plastic waste a company generates and what negative effects this can have on the impacted environment, society, and economy. Think plastic grocery bags, milk jugs, or plastic wrap. EnvirOx is all about sustainability. Not only is this company big on recycling in their day to day operations, but the products they make also follow the same mantra. The chemical is dispensed into reusable spray bottles. These bottles are also as recyclable as the cardboard boxes they’re shipped in.
ENVIROX CAN REDUCE YOUR PLASTIC FOOTPRINT
If you use only 1 case of EnvirOx per month, you’ve saved up to 2,036 cardboard boxes and 24,528 plastic bottles* per year from the landfills.
In the opinion of SIVAD PPE, this makes EnvirOx the best all purpose general cleaner on the market. One EnvirOx product takes care of 95% of your general cleaning. That means you're saving money and closet space not buying multiple products and saving time by not having to learn every product. Reducing the number of cleaning products business purchase will help minimize your plastic footprint.
HOW ENVIROX SAVES BUSINESSES MONEY:
One case goes a long way. Our hyper-concentrated formula delivers low in-use cost while reducing cleaning chemical inventory and frequency of shipping and ordering. One case of EnvirOx can equal 2,048** quarts of glass cleaner. Imagine how long would it take your company to use over 2,000 bottles of glass cleaner before having to order more. This a budget friendly way to reduce your plastic waste.
