Hallmark partners with BioHygiene in move towards sustainability
We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with Biotech cleaning supplier, BioHygiene, in a move towards sustainability.
We have introduced BioHygiene’s carbon-neutral, non-hazardous products within the Kitchen, Laundry and Housekeeping Departments of our 19 homes in a bid to reduce carbon emissions and plastic waste across the board.
With BioHygiene chemicals being produced and stored in Wales, the change will see us significantly reduce our deliveries and transport costs, lowering our carbon emissions by up to 88%. The switch to concentrate with reusable, recyclable PCR bottles will also enable us to reduce our plastic waste up to 37%.
Formulated with naturally-derived ingredients including microbes, enzymes, plant extracts and organic acids, BioHygiene’s biotech-based products reduces the risk of irritation to the skin, eyes and lungs, contributing to the health and safety of our team members, residents and visitors. All team members have been trained on the correct use and storage of BioHygiene products as part of the National roll-out plan to further ensure the safety of all users.
Regional Hospitality Support Manager, Rob Byrom said: “We are delighted to have partnered with BioHygiene, it has changed the way we clean for the better and we are pleased to be providing our teams with safer, greener chemicals. It is just one of the many steps we are taking to become more environmentally sustainable as a business.”
Erum Ahmed, Sales Director at BioHygiene, commented: “At BioHygiene, our aim is not just to remove harmful, chemical products from the world, but to help businesses to become more sustainable long-term. We’re thrilled to be supporting Hallmark in its mission to reduce its environmental impact. The feedback from each care home has been fantastic, and we’re extremely excited to continue our partnership into the future.”
