Wednesday March 21, 2018

If cloths used in a food service environment are hard to rinse and keep clean, this could lead to a higher consumption rate, in turn increasing landfill, harming the environment and contributing to higher waste disposal requirements.

Our supplier Chicopee is protecting the environment while guarding against the spread of harmful bacteria with the eco-friendly J-Cloth® Plus Biodegradable. The J-Cloth® Plus Biodegradable is the latest addition to the successful range of J-Cloth cleaning wipes for the professional cleaning industry where going green is high on the agenda.

It was recently revealed by market research firm Mintel that eco-friendly cleaning products account for 30 per cent of the household cleaners market, increasing by 15 per cent since 2013. Consumers are seeking natural cleaning products that work, whilst reducing their environmental impact.

The J-Cloth® Plus Biodegradable is the ultimate eco-friendly multi-purpose cloth. The first compostable, biodegradable and Food Contact Clearance approved cloth on the market, its design is based on the world-renowned J-Cloth® Plus. Its unique, open, wavy texture enables efficient pick-up of any dirt and makes it easy to rinse, ensuring longer freshness.
