Complete Range Is Certified For Sustainability

The new Room Care Pur-Eco range from Sealed Air’s Diversey business is a complete set of advanced cleaning products with the latest EU Ecolabel certification for hotels and other hospitality businesses who want to adopt and demonstrate the highest standards of sustainability. The five products in the range have innovative non-classified formulations to cover all routine and daily cleaning tasks. Each is supplied as a super concentrate format for use with the popular Divermite dosing control platform to further promote sustainability with reduced packaging, CO2 emissions, water consumption and product wastage.

The internationally-recognised EU Ecolabel provides assurance that a product has passed rigorous independent testing and meets strict sustainability and safety criteria. Diversey used its experience and understanding of the market to develop the new products to comply with the very latest EU Ecolabel requirements while offering the same superior performance, ease of use and safe operation as its other ranges.

The Room Care Pur-Eco range meets demand from housekeepers and contractors in the hospitality industry for a complete set of sustainability-certified products. Certification is important because globally half of all hotel guests take a hotel’s sustainability credentials into account when choosing where to stay. This is one of the reasons why, according to Diversey’s sustainability market research, over half of all hotels are considering eco-accreditations such as Green Hotel. EU Ecolabel products are a highly visible way to demonstrate credibility and compliance.

Room Care Pur-Eco comprises five advanced products covering all routine and daily housekeeping tasks: R1-plus Pur-Eco toilet cleaner; R2-plus Pur-Eco hard surface cleaner; R3-plus Pur-Eco multi-surface and glass cleaner; R9-plus Pur-Eco acidic washroom cleaner; R10-plus Pur-Eco neutral floor cleaner. The mildly acidic surfactants, derived from natural vegetable sources, help prevent lime-scale.

Like all Diversey products, the Room Care Pur-Eco range is supplied in industry-standard colour-coded packaging which matches tools and equipment to support simpler training and ease of use. Products are supplied as super concentrates in compact pouches for use with the popular Divermite dispensing system which is widely used throughout the hospitality and food service sectors to prepare cleaning solutions in spray bottles and buckets.

Divermite, like all Diversey super concentrate platforms, further promotes sustainability by ensuring accurate preparation of cleaning solutions with minimal wastage for optimum performance and consistency. Water is only added at the point of use to minimise chemical miles. Compact packaging and use of recyclable materials means waste management costs are minimised.
