"We are committed to reducing the carbon footprint of the cleaning industry," says Todd Schaeffer, vice president and general manager, Activeion Cleaning Solutions. "Our product, the Activeion Pro, uses a revolutionary technology that transforms tap water into a powerful, general-purpose cleaner, freeing the environment from harmful chemical-based cleaning products. It is ideal for use on surfaces including glass, stainless steel, carpet and natural stone. The Activeion Pro is helping cleaning professionals deliver a safer, greener, more profitable solution for their customers. For those who want to make a tangible difference in their approach to environmental stewardship, Activeion offers a true solution."
The Activeion Pro even sanitizes, when used as directed. Independent third-party certified lab testing shows the Activeion Pro provides for a clean and sanitary surface, with a greater than 99.9 percent reduction of organisms, including e-coli, staph, MRSA, listeria and salmonella from non-porous hard surfaces.

When compared to cleaning with traditional chemical detergents, the Activeion Pro delivers a greater than 97 percent benefit across seven key indicators tied to environmental sustainability. A study, coauthored by the University of Tennessee and EcoForm, concluded that converting to just one Activeion Pro for general-purpose cleaning in commercial applications is equivalent to saving 93 gallons of gasoline and two barrels of oil.
