Zero Waste Campaign
As you may have seen, at the start of this month we took part in the Zero Waste Week campaign but due to our commitment to sustainability we decided to extend the campaign for the entire month!
Zero Waste Week is an award-winning campaign, raising awareness about the environmental impact of waste.
The campaign was initially launched in 2008 and takes place across social media, with bloggers posting content throughout the week and events taking place online.
We aim to raise awareness about the environmental impact of waste and how Micro-Fresh® products can reduce waste and help
save the planet.
How are Micro-Fresh® products sustainable?
Micro-Fresh® is not only anti-odour but anti-bacterial as well, preventing odour causing bacteria and keeping products fresher for longer. This means your customers won’t need to wash your products as frequently and can be washed at cold temperatures.
Micro-Fresh® in products reduces:
The need for washing frequently
Waste going to landfill as products stay fresher for longer
