Bona announces Green Seal approval on Commercial System and SuperCourt products
Bona announced yesterday that it has received Green Seal approval on two of its SuperCourt cleaners as well as a cleaner within its Commercial System line of cleaning products. The certification is part of an ongoing commitment to offer premium, highly effective, environmentally-minded products for hardwood floors.
Bona also announced its renewed partnership with Healthy Schools Campaign in the US to support the Green Clean Schools programme.
These announcements, as well as other innovations at Bona, are highlighted this week at ISSA/Interclean North America, in Las Vegas.
"Environmental stewardship is core to our values at Bona," said Cate Vanegas, director of marketing, Bona US. "Achieving Green Seal approval is a milestone in our ongoing commitment to offering the best possible products for hardwood floors.
"From office buildings to gym floors to the everyday home, Bona makes hardwood floor care maintenance easy and keeps hardwood floors looking beautiful."
Green Seal, the US's foremost environmental certification body, provides science-based environmental certification standards that are credible, transparent and essential to helping manufacturers, purchasers and consumers make responsible choices that positively impact business behaviour and improve quality of life. The recent certification of Bona's products validates the company's ongoing commitment to innovate safe products for the industry.
The following products received Green Seal certification:
* The Bona Commercial System Hardwood Floor Cleaner Concentrate - a commercial grade hardwood cleaner that is safe for daily use, dries fast, leaves no residue and can also effectively remove ice melt salt during winter months. It is safe for use on unwaxed, polyurethane finished wood floors
* Bona SuperCourt Cleaner - Athletic Wood Floor Cleaner Concentrate, a professional strength, waterborne cleaner concentrate formulated for unwaxed, polyurethane finished wood floors, is designed for gym floor cleaning and auto scrubbers. It leaves no residue and will not dull the floor's finish
* The Bona SuperCourt Winter Formula Cleaner - Athletic Wood Floor Cleaner Concentrate, a professional strength, waterborne cleaner concentrate formulated for unwaxed, polyurethane finished wood floors, will not dull the floor's finish and removes damaging salts and magnesium chloride that may appear on a winter floor
As a partner with the HSC's Green Clean Schools programme, Bona is helping schools and universities to support student health and wellness through green cleaning. The company will participate in HSC's Green Clean Schools Track at ISSA/Interclean to bring green cleaning to the forefront of hundreds of school and university cleaning programmes. This year the Green Clean Schools Track, hosted by Healthy Schools Campaign and ISSA, will be the official education seminar package at ISSA/Interclean.
"Over the past 10 years, HSC's Green Clean Schools has promoted green cleaning in schools through online resources, events, webinars, education and advocacy," said Rochelle Davis, president and CEO of Healthy Schools Campaign. "This year marks the first year for the Green Clean Schools Forum which will bring together leading K-12 and university facility operators to raise awareness about green cleaning best practices, products and trends that will help them elevate their cleaning programs to new heights."
Bona will also have a presence at ISSA on the show floor (booth #3887) showcasing the newly Green Seal certified products, its new cleaner dispensing system, and an opportunity to experience its full line of Bona Commercial System product, the Bona Abrasion System and Bona Athletic Floor Care products. The company says its innovative dust-free sanding and Greenguard Gold certification on its waterborne products demonstrates the its commitment to the health and wellness of future generations.
