Investing in our environment without compromise
In recent years we have replaced much of our processing machinery, investing in equipment that is more cost effective to run, using significantly less energy, time and water.
Our washing machines are using less fresh mains water and also recycle rinse water, which takes less time to heat up. They are geared to ensure we wash at the optimum temperature to achieve maximum output.
In the drying process, infra-red heat detection is fitted in the tumble driers so that washed items are conditioned perfectly and the driers are not running unnecessarily, keeping energy use low and our products in first class condition.
Steam ironers that rely on a separate boiler system have been replaced with gas heated ironers that heat up in a fraction of the time.
So far we've...
Laundry Wrap 100% Recyclable
Our eco friendly essential laundry wrap is 100% recyclable.
Overhaul of our vehicle fleets
Reduced MPG & CO2 emissions by overhauling our vehicle fleet and delivery routes, and training better driving techniques.
Establishing a recycling programme
Dramatically reduced waste by implementing a recycling programme.
Investment in machinery
Invested substantially in energy efficient machines and techniques.
Which has reduced...
All our detergents are readily biodegradable, and our controlled, accurate dosing ensures that we minimise the amount of detergent needed in each wash.
Through investment in new machinery and working more sustainably, we have reduced annual energy use by 22,285KWH, enough energy to run 3,978 homes for a year.
From working pro-actively with Christeyns to manage water consumption without reducing wash quality, we have managed to SAVE.
Our Products re used into other items
The items we reject as beyond their useful life are re used to make things like industrial cleaning cloths, carpet tiles and even boxing gloves.
Reducing our washing temperature
Washing temperature has reduced by 27%.
39% reduction in our utility use
Utility use has reduced by 39%(compared to 2008).
50% reduction in water usage
Water is recycled so our water usereduces by 50% per wash.
