Searching for green chemical trends
PETERBOROUGH, ON — Several attendees to the recent ISSA/INTERCLEAN trade show in Las Vegas reported that green cleaning did not appear to be as significant this year as in the past, according to a press release.
Some distributors and manufacturers believe this is because many end customers are now more concerned about saving green than going green, the release stated.
According to the release, other studies indicate the selection of environmentally preferable cleaning chemicals will grow significantly in the next few years.
To analyze the current state of green affairs, Enviro-Solutions Ltd. asked its approximately 250 distributors and sales representatives what they see happening in the green marketplace, the release noted.
When asked, "Approximately what percentages of your customers are now selecting only green cleaning chemicals," just five percent said their clients select only green cleaning products, the release added.
"This has been somewhat of a holding pattern for the past couple of years," said Mike Sawchuk, vice president and general manager of Enviro-Solutions.
"However, for certain types of facilities like schools and universities, the movement to purchasing exclusively green cleaning products has grown. We see this occurring among some cleaning contractors as well," Sawchuk concluded.
