Old Bottles, new wipe. Vileda Professional r-MicroTuff Swift, the first recycled cleaning cloth from Vileda Professional
Sustainability is at the heart of our corporate activity. Based on more than 60 years’ experience in the business we want to provide more than just cleaning solutions which keep sites and surfaces hygienically clean, they should also contribute to a cleaner planet as well.
That is why we created a whole new series of products. All of them are sustainably crafted from post-consumer recycled polyester and marked with an r. These premium cleaning products meet sustainable values driven by innovation and responsibility: Clean meets green.
r-MicroTuff Swift is the first recycled cleaning cloth from Vileda Professional. The cloth, made from 100% recycled polyester, provides our customers with the same superior Microfibre cleaning power and durability as the virgin fibre product.
2 PET bottles, 0.5 l are re-used in 1 r-MicroTuff Swift cloth without compromising on cleaning performance and durability. The re-use of PET bottles is cutting down on the consumption of raw materials and the usage of post-consumer recycled polyester results in CO2 savings.
A 3rd party laboratory has proven the superior performance of our r-MicroTuff Swift in removing virus. The result: Each cloth removes up to 99,99% of bovine corona viruses from vinyl surfaces. In addition, the cloth provides very high particle pick-up, is absorbent and excellent for spillages.
r-MicroTuff Swift stands for highest cleaning efficiency, durability and sustainability and has thus been awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, which underlines that it is safe for the users and the environment. It represents an important contribution to a better environment that makes cleaners proud and satisfies customers' needs.
Lead your business to sustainable success and calculate your sustainable profit right now by switching to the recycled r-MicroTuff Swift.
