Vaclensa introduces vacuum cleaner made from recycled plastics
Vaclensa, one of the UK's leading suppliers of professional cleaning machines and now part of the global Tennant brand, has replaced it long standing C167PT Tub Vacuum Cleaner with a new version made from recycled plastic.
The C167PT vacuum cleaner has been a staple product offering from Vaclensa for many years and can be frequently spotted in use throughout the UK in hotels, shopping centres and offices, but as the company looks to the future it has taken a serious interest in its sustainability strategy and environmental impact.
"As a company we take great care in listening to our customers and working with them to ensure we provide the solutions they need," explains UK marketing manager Daniel Cross. "For some, innovation is a priority and for others it is sustainability, so here we have combined both into a single solution."
Named 'Black is Green', the C167 Tub Vacuum has exactly the same features and technical specification as the previous model, except for the fact that the raw material is made from the best and carefully-selected plastic waste.
Manufactured through an innovative process which guarantees strict quality and safety controls, 'Black is Green' plastic has the same features of brand new plastic but is eco-friendly because 75% has been obtained from recycled material.
"In addition to listening to our customers we also have our own sustainability strategy and as a responsible company we want to help improve the environment by reducing plastic waste," adds Daniel. "Recycled plastic produces no waste because it is itself recyclable and in compliance with RoHS and REACH guidelines as well as meeting TUV Certified recycling process and production."
With a strategy to introduce recycled plastic into other products in the Vaclensa range, the company has become a key part of its customers' ethical supply chain, helping them meet their own environmental, sustainability and CSR targets.
