The overall goal of a circular economy is to retain the value of the products we use and throw nothing away. The need to move from a disposable ‘linear economy’ to a sustainable ‘circular economy’ is becoming increasingly urgent and Probiotic Cleaning Products can help facilitate the change.
A Linear Economy operates on a ‘take-make-dispose’ model, which has a clear beginning and a clear end. Resources are continually used to produce products that are discarded after use.
A Circular Economy operates on a ‘restorative and regenerative’ model. It has economic and environmental benefits that are missing from the linear system. It centres around the prevention of waste by re-using biological and technical products and services wherever possible.
This focuses on the best and most efficient use and re-use of resources and ‘closes the loop’. It retains the value of the products we use, reduces resource depletion and pollution and contributes to a cleaner environment.
How Changing to Using Probiotics Helps the Circular Economy
If you want more of your business strategies to promote a circular economy, choosing any of the Provilan cleaning product ranges* from Ingenious Probiotics will help.
All products are ‘Clever Akafen’ certified as having a low ecological impact. This means they meet environmentally-friendly standards that are essential for a circular economy, including:
1. Made with Safe, Naturally-Sourced Ingredients
The core ingredient is helpful probiotic ‘good’ bacteria, which are naturally sourced from plants.
Our ingredients are vegan and animal cruelty-free, non-polluting and biodegradable. They do not contain any dangerous substances, chemicals, carcinogens or toxins. This makes them completely safe for long term use by cleaning operatives.
2. Prevents Waste – Waste Becomes a Resource
The helpful probiotic bacteria found in our probiotic cleaning products are never wasted.
They are safe to be re-used. They do not cause pollution or environmental damage or require expensive, safety-conscious waste management at the end of their useful life. They reduce the toxic burden:
When you discard the helpful probiotics down the drain, they carrying on working for you. They safely and efficiently continue to clean and reduce pollution from wastewater, drains and inside pipework. They reduce organic waste, harmful bacteria, oils and fats and unpleasant sewage odours.
This improves the quality and safety of discharged water, increases the effectiveness of water systems and reduces the toxic burden on the environment.
This ‘bonus’ action extends the life cycle of your cleaning products and maintains their value after use. It fulfils the key circular economy criteria ‘to preserve and extend what’s already made’.
3. Keeps Working Between Applications
The helpful probiotics thoroughly and naturally deep clean at a deep microbiological level to restore healthy microbial balance.
They have a slow-release, natural mechanical action, and keep working effectively for several days after cleaning stops. This means the probiotics continue to work between applications, creating an increasingly healthier environment with every use.
This longer-lasting, deep cleaning action increases the value of your cleaning products. It can allow you to extend your cleaning intervals and reduce your product usage over time.
4. Supplied in Sustainable Packing
All of our eco-friendly, probiotic cleaning products are supplied in recyclable containers that are made using ocean recycled plastic.
