Recyclable

At The Hygiene Company, we are committed towards the ongoing development of eco-friendly products.

Recyclable: Megatex

Our Megatex 100% PP (Polypropylene) wipes are recyclable.

Features:

  • High strength in both directions – across and along the wipe
  • Very low linting – low risk of leaving contaminating fibres on surfaces
  • Excellent solution retention – ensuring even wetness throughout the wipe
  • Efficient solution release – active wipe ingredients are transferred to the surface

You can recycle this plastic if your local authority mentions:

  • Packing tape
  • Plastic Straws
  • Take away tubs
  • Ketchup bottles
  • Plastic picnicware
  • Carrier bags
  • Polypropylene can be recycled into brooms, brushes, garden rakes and plastic trays.

 

LDPE plastics:

More recycling programs are beginning to accept LDPE plastics, found in household items such as clingfilm, grocery bags, frozen food containers and squeezable bottles. Recycled LDPE is made into such items as garbage cans, panelling, furniture, flooring and bubble wrap.

The importance of recycling

Plastic recycling is important because it means waste can be put to good use rather than unnecessarily ending up in landfill. Recycled plastic can be used to create items such as shampoo bottles, oil funnels, floor tiles and traffic cones among many other products.

Moreover, there are many innovative ways to use recycled plastic. For example, recycled plastic can be used for creating construction decks, sports clothing, vehicle interiors and other products.

For every 1 ton of plastic that is recycled, it is estimated that 7 yards of landfill space is conserved.

By recycling plastic, 80% of the total energy that goes into manufacturing new plastic products is conserved. Stanford University estimates that recycling 1 ton of plastic conserves 7,200-kilowatt hours of electricity. That’s enough electricity to run an average household for 7 months.

The Hygiene Company

Our commitment to the environment

It has always been and always remains, our policy to provide the highest quality products, judged not only on their convenience and effectiveness as multi-purpose antibacterial wipes, but also on their environmental impact.

As part of our environmental efforts, we are offering labels for your facility users, to demonstrate the best way to dispose of their used wipes depending on what options are available.

On top of our recycling initiative, we also stock a range of biodegradable wet wipes. Whilst these products are mostly disposed of along with general waste, they are decomposed by bacteria, making them kinder to the environment.

At The Hygiene Company we are fully committed to a cleaner, safer, and happier environment.
