Do Jansan Distributors Practice What They…Sell?

Ontario, Canada - Distributors and manufacturer’s reps for Enviro-Solutions, manufacturer of Green-certified cleaning chemicals and tools, were asked to complete a survey on how Green they are at home and while at work.

Ninety-three people completed the online survey.

The survey asked about a number of activities that pertain specifically to distributors/reps who spend a lot of their time traveling, both within and outside their local communities.

For instance, asked if they turn off hotel guest room lights and televisions when leaving their rooms, more than 70 percent answered “always.” (Actual survey results on all questions follow.)

As to turning down guest room air-conditioners when leaving the room, 27 percent said always; 43 percent, sometimes; the rest, rarely or never.

The distributors were also asked if they ever walk or bike to work or to run errands. Going to work, 84 percent said no; to handle an errand, 45 percent said no.

Some of the other findings included these:

· As to using Green cleaning products at home: 19 percent use “only” Green cleaning products; 49 percent, “many”; 30 percent, “some”; 2 percent, “none.”

· Asked if they use cold, warm, or hot water to clean clothes, the responses were 55 percent, cold; 36 percent, warm; and 9 percent, hot.

· As to bringing their own bags when grocery shopping, 30 percent always bring their own shopping bags; 47 percent said sometimes; 23 percent, rarely.

· Asked at what temperature they set their air-conditioners, 7 percent said 68 degrees; 12 percent, 70 degrees; 50 percent, 72 degrees; and 31 percent, 76 degrees.

“Of course the big question is if they use Green cleaning products in the office,” says Mike Sawchuk, Vice President of Enviro-Solutions. “Nearly 70 percent said yes and 27 percent said some. A few respondents said none, and those people, shall we say, may need a bit more educating.
