Ecological household cleaning range 17/03/2021

DELPHIS ECO has kaunched its ecological household cleaning range into 260 Waitrose branches and at Waitrose.com almost a year on from lockdown 1.0 and after a decade of British made, professional cleaning products in the toughest commercial cleaning environment.

In the last 12 months, retailers have seen a greater demand for more sustainable products that work as consumers have  changed behaviour. This demand is mirrored in Delphis Eco sales performance which has seen significant growth in line with the consumer trend.

Delphis Eco's CEO Mark Jankovich said: “In lockdown 1.0 people realised that they were going to be stuck at home for some time.  85per cent of our traditional (B2B) business fell off a cliff on the 23rd of March 2020.  Thankfully, overnight we saw a spike in demand for Delphis Eco household cleaning products.  We attribute this to people looking for cleaning products they could trust, and which were as eco-friendly as possible. That behaviour is here to stay.”

Jankovich continued: “We are incredibly lucky to be one of the success stories that came out of a very tough 2020.  Prior to lockdown, we had launched our top 20 household-friendly products into the consumer market at Robert Dyas and Ocado. YoY, compared to 2019, Robert Dyas and Ocado sales tracked an increase of 974% and 1300% respectively.

“Achieving a listing in Waitrose is a significant moment for the business.  Waitrose is the perfect partner to launch our household cleaning range nationally.  We are excited about being on the shelf across over 260 stores from Monday the 15th.  We share values and a deep belief in sustainability.”

Sarah Miness, Waitrose household cleaning buyer said: “Our customers are more aware than ever of their individual impact on the environment, and this includes being environmentally responsible with household jobs. With sales of eco-friendly cleaning products up 18% at Waitrose, we are extending our range to meet demand and are delighted to offer the Delphis Eco professional cleaning range in branches and online at Waitrose.com.
 
Waitrose shops and Waitrose.com will carry all or some of the 10 product range including Delphis Eco Floor and Surface Cleaner, Delphis Eco Bathroom Cleaner, Delphis Eco Toilet & Limescale Cleaner, Delphis Eco Limescale Remover, Delphis Eco Ceramic & Induction Hob Cleaner, Delphis Eco X-factor Cleaner, Delphis Eco Multi Purpose Descaler, Delphis Eco Anti-bacterial Kitchen Sanitiser and Cleaner, Delphis Eco Drain Cleaner & Maintainer, and Delphis Eco Glass & Stainless Steel Cleaner.
 
The entire range is formulated with the environment at heart and is free from nasty chemicals and ingredients such as phosphates, phosphonates, EDTA, and APEs.  The 15th March launch in Waitrose adds to a growing number of online and high street retailers listing Delphis Eco products, including  Ocado, Robert Dyas, Farmdrop, Partridges London, Office Depot, Big Green Smile, Viking, The Health Store and Tree of Life.

Back to work, back to sustainable cleaning 02/10/2020

The cleaning sector is facing significant challenges as businesses open their doors post-lockdown and staff return to their workplaces. Cleaning Matters speaks to Mark Jankovich who warns that it is important during this time to remember that ‘clean can also be green.’

CLEANING TEAMS across the UK are working hard to ensure customers, staff, guests are safe and the deep cleaning process has a crucial part to play. Nevertheless, businesses do not need to lose sight of the fact that sustainable products can be equally effective as their more toxic counterparts in playing their part to tackle coronavirus and ensure sites are sanitised and safe.  

Green and sustainable cleaning
Green cleaning is fast becoming the new normal. Not just those who are living more eco lifestyles but now it's becoming the go-to choice for businesses which are really driving sustainability and highlighting the need to be green.  Often, more sustainable and free products come with a high price tag. However, at Delphis Eco, the range is not only environmentally friendly but also economical for businesses allowing them to purchase environmentally friendly and sustainable products at the right price without compromise.  

Mark Jankovich, CEO of Delphis Eco said: “We have experienced a significant increase in enquires from potential new clients who are looking to use sustainable cleaning products going forward rather than their previously less sustainable supplier. Buying cleaning and hygiene products from more sustainable brands is becoming more of a priority for many businesses.  

"By embracing less toxic products, there is benefit both for the longevity of the environment and for the safety of their own teams.”


 

Natural ingredients

Delphis Eco has made its name as the British-made brand that uses all-natural ingredients. The range offered is phosphate free and contains no - or very few - VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which are some of the most damaging contents historically found in cleaning chemicals.
  
All the company’s products are plant based, ecological and readily biodegradable, yet proven in tests, remain 98% more effective than their competitors. Every product has been designed and developed for its eco-friendly properties, with no loss in effectiveness in tackling the job of deep cleaning. At Delphis Eco it’s called ‘Greendustrial Strength’ cleaning.

Furthermore, packaging is increasingly hitting the news as an area where businesses and consumers are driving change. According to the BBC News an estimated 1.3billion tonnes of plastic is destined for the environment by 2040 unless global action is taken. Delphis Eco has been at the forefront in innovating how single use plastic can be given a second life and was the first UK brand to move its bottles to 100% recycled plastic.

Green packaging

After a five-year journey, Delphis Eco finally proved the ‘art of the possible’ and launched its 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles taken straight from UK waste streams. The company is the first (and only) UK eco-cleaning product company to achieve this, seven years ahead of mainstream manufacturers.  

Additionally, the labels for all its bottles are printed with vegetable ink and boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard (even the liner is recycled).

Delphis Eco continually interrogates its supply chain for more opportunities to be more sustainable in its quest to close the loop and reduce waste back into the environment.

Hand sanitisers
Hand sanitisers are seeing unprecedented demand and Delphis Eco continues to be an expert in this area, as Mark Jankovich commented: “There are actually two main types of hand sanitiser available on the market, sanitiser gels, where alcohol is the active ingredient and water-based sanitisers, containing Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QUAT) as the active ingredient. 

"You will find these types of foaming sanitiser (QUATS) in many of our hospitals, for the use of staff and visitors, often chosen as they are considered safer than their alcohol-based counterparts. QUAT are the active substances found in the majority of surface sanitising and disinfecting products, chosen for their effectiveness against a wide range of bacteria, moulds, fungus and viruses, whilst being relatively safe for users and the environment. Very few hand sanitiser brands, whether alcohol-based or QUAT based, will have undergone efficacy testing against viruses and at the moment, none will have been tested against COVID-19.  

"One of the reasons for this is that it is widely accepted that enveloped viruses, such as Covid-19 are easily killed by correctly formulated alcohol sanitisers, but it is also the case that these virus types are also easily killed by correctly formulated QUAT based products.”

Delphis Eco’s hand sanitiser foam contains the maximum amount of QUAT allowed in 'leave on' products in accordance with the EU Cosmetic Safety Regulations. The important thing to note is that with alcohol-based sanitisers in the form of gel a product has to contain a minimum of 60% alcohol. For a QUAT to work it needs to be a 0.003%. This is why QUATs are used to clean hospitals. They are effective yet much kinder to the environment.  

One of the key challenges for businesses will be to ensure the effective supply of hand wash and products for the washroom and ensuring they are clearly displayed, easily accessible and kept topped up and clean, with effective hand dryers situated in close proximity to the sink.  

The stats are widely known - most people only wash their hands for 6 seconds (not the recommended 20 seconds for Covid protection) and around 33% of people don't use soap when washing their hands. Clean signage in washrooms to encourage people to wash their hands with soap and the reasons why will be helpful in changing this statistic.

Up to 80% of communicable diseases are transferred by touch. Perhaps what is less well known is that damp hands are 1000x more likely to spread bacteria than dry hands. Hand hygiene is one of the most important things in the prevention and control of many illnesses and as we all now know is crucial in minimising the spread of COVID-19. 

Many of the company's customers are significantly increasing the amount of cleaning products they are purchasing, including the antibacterial sanitiser and hand sanitiser but the company has had to be cautious in dealing with these increased bulk orders to ensure that all customers are able to get the products they need.

Recycled plastic rating

In September 2019, Delphis Eco introduced the ‘Recycled Plastic Rating’ (RPR), a campaign which saw the launch of a new trust mark enabling consumers to take back control of what plastic actually gets recycled, versus what gets dumped into the oceans.  

The rating shows the amount of recycled plastic content in the packaging consumers buy and instantly gives them the power to vote with their wallets and chose packaging that is fundamentally diverting plastic from landfill.  The RPR is enabling consumers to see, at a glance, the exact plastic credentials of products they are purchasing.


At home market

As well as selling into the commercial and retail markets, Delphis Eco has recently launched its cleaning range into the ‘at home’ market digitally via Ocado and Farmdrop and in store at Robert Dyas.

Mark Jankovich observed: “We are really delighted about our new working partnership with Ocado and Farmdrop as both digital businesses have a strong environmental and sustainability policy which is a perfectly natural fit for us and a great step forward for the business.”

So what's next? According to Jankovich Delphis Eco is seeing customers moving away from single-use units towards with a large uptake in customers opting for refillable solutions and the 5ltr refill products. 

"Going forward," he concluded, "well, this is simple, we will continue pushing our refill and reuse agenda. From bottles to closures we will be encouraging business and consumers to think about how they purchase cleaning products."

Mark Jankovich is CEO at Delphis Eco – which stands for ‘clean and green’ professional cleaning – the award-winning, British-made all-natural sustainable cleaning chemical manufacturer. Changing the way we think about chemicals and climate change.

Addressing post-lockdown washroom challenges 26/06/2020

As Mark Jankovich, CEO of Delphis Eco explains, a key challenge for post-lockdown businesses will be the provision of hand sanitiser within washrooms, alongside traditional washroom products.

Hand sanitisers are seeing unprecedented demand and Delphis Eco is an expert in this area. Delphis Eco – which stands for ‘clean and green’ professional cleaning – is an award-winning, British-made all-natural cleaning chemical manufacturer born out of an urgent need to reconsider the consumable products we've all come to depend on.

Right now the cleaning industry is facing enormous challenges as hotels, B&B’s, restaurants and pubs have closed their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Facilities management teams will be working hard to plan how to keep customers safe when they are allowed to re-open and the washroom hygiene will play a crucial part in that.

There are actually two main types of hand sanitiser available on the market, sanitiser gels, where alcohol is the active ingredient and water-based sanitisers, containing Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QUAT) as the active ingredient. 

You will find these types of foaming sanitiser (QUATS) in many of our hospitals, for the use of staff and visitors, often chosen as they are considered safer than their alcohol-based counterparts. QUAT are the active substances found in the majority of surface sanitising and disinfecting products, chosen for their effectiveness against a wide range of bacteria, moulds, fungus and viruses, whilst being relatively safe for users and the environment.

Very few hand sanitiser brands, whether alcohol-based or QUAT based, will have undergone efficacy testing against viruses and at the moment, none will have been tested against COVID-19. One of the reasons for this is that it is widely accepted that enveloped viruses, such as COVID-19 are easily killed by correctly formulated alcohol sanitisers, but it is also the case that these virus types are also easily killed by correctly formulated QUAT based products.

Delphis Eco’s Hand Sanitiser Foam contains the maximum amount of QUAT allowed in 'leave on' products in accordance with the EU Cosmetic Safety Regulations. The product itself has not been tested against enveloped viruses, as there is already published information supporting the ability of QUAT to kill enveloped viruses, similar to COVID-19. 

The important thing to note is that with alcohol-based sanitisers in the form of gel a product has to contain a minimum of 60% alcohol. For a QUAT to work it needs to be a 0.003%. This is why QUATs are used to clean hospitals; they are effective yet much kinder to the environment.

Delphis Eco is receiving an increasing number of enquiries regarding the ingredients within its products including hand sanitiser as people are becoming more conscious of ensuring customers’ safety. 

Current global shortage of pump action dispenser tops
A global shortage of the pump action dispenser tops and trigger pumps has meant that anti-bacterial hand soaps and gels are being held up in getting out to consumers and on shelves to people who desperately need these products. With China and Italy the main producers of world supply, and with no sign of factories re-opening the situation will soon become critical.

In a bid to alleviate the situation, Delphis Eco has got together with First Mile Recycling to offer a free recycling service to try and get stocks back in of the bottle closures to enable supply. First Mile will then sort the items before returning them to Delphis to be refilled and reused. Every bottle closure that is returned means another bottle of anti-bacterial hand soap or gel that will be out on shelf waging war against C-19.

As some businesses prepare for reopening and begin to plan a deep clean of their business, Delphis Eco has experienced a significant increase in enquires from potential new clients who are looking to use sustainable cleaning products going forward rather than their previously less sustainable supplier. Buying cleaning and hygiene products from more sustainable brands is becoming more of a priority for many businesses.

Natural ingredients
Delphis Eco has made its name as the British-made brand that uses all natural ingredients, yet is highly effective in tackling the jobs in hand. The extensive range offered to cleaners is phosphate free and contain no or very little VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), which are some of the most damaging contents historically found in cleaning chemicals. 

All the company’s products are plant based, ecological and readily biodegradable, yet proved in tests remain 98% more effective than their competitors. Every product has been developed for its eco-friendly properties, but with no loss in effectiveness in tackling the job in hand.

And what about packaging?
Delphis Eco has worked with specialist recyclers to launch (two years’ ago) what at the time was believed to be the world’s 1st 100% recycled PCR packaging for all its products. The packaging is food grade quality as not only can 100% recycled plastic be used in general supply, but it also has a future in how food is packaged and marketed to consumers. Additionally, the labels for all its bottles are printed with vegetable ink and boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard (even the liner is recycled).

Supplies run low of antibacterial soaps and sanitising gels 02/03/2020

British eco-cleaning chemical brand, Delphis Eco, has reported sell out of its anti-bacterial hand-soaps as public concern grows in the wake of the Coronavirus and its likely spread in the UK.

CEO Mark Jankovich has tripled his production capabilities in order to meet demand and ensure emergency supplies are available to fulfil orders across washrooms in the Restaurant and Hotel sectors.  

He said: “The World Health Organization has declared the virus ‘public enemy number one’. People are worried, businesses are worried - and hotels and restaurants are taking the situation very seriously. It’s not just the out of home market – retail sales are going through the roof too for domestic use. We have upped production by more than 300% in order to meet current demand.

“Whilst the evidence seen so far indicates that the coronavirus spreads through close contact with individuals who are infected, personal hygiene is at the forefront of peoples’ minds who want to take precautionary measures.  Anti-bacterial hand-soap, and good hand hygiene are key to this.”

How can the cleaning sector achieve climate change targets? 26/02/2020

Mark Jankovich, CEO, Delphis Eco, the award-winning, British eco-cleaning chemical manufacturer, discusses the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference COP26, why it’s arguably the most important one to date and how the cleaning industry needs to change and act to help achieve climate change targets.

Hard on the heels of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement of the 26th session of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), we now all understand more about what will be tackled at this summit, and indeed what this means for the cleaning industry, as a whole.

COP26 is due to take place in Glasgow in November 2020 and is arguably the most important UN climate change yet. There are exactly 10 years left until 2030 – the year identified in The Paris Agreement to achieve keeping global warming to well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. 

The Paris Agreement was the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate change agreement and so marked a step-change in how the global crisis is being approached. It’s not a ‘nice to have’ – it’s now legally binding!  This climate crisis will quite literally have an unfathomable impact on the future for generations to come. 

Sir David Attenborough joined PM Boris Johnson when he launched COP26, where the importance of the event was made perfectly clear – unless we do something now, the climate crisis becomes insoluble. 

The UK has committed to the target of net zero emissions by 2050 – an ambitious target but a do’able and important one – and PM Boris Johnson set out various plans to help achieve this, such as bringing the ban of petrol, diesel or hybrid cars forward from 2040 to 2035.

So, what does this critical year in climate change mean for the cleaning industry? And more importantly, what can we do to play our part and help achieve these targets outlined?

We, as an industry have the potential to make a big difference. Nearly all cleaning products come in some form of plastic packaging – bottles of bleach, detergents, anti-bacterial sprays and so on. 300 million tons of plastic is produced annually and the world only recycles 9% of the plastic it makes annually meaning a minimum of 91% goes into landfill, the ocean or is incinerated. Needless to say, this has a material impact on climate change through waste processes.

We need to find ways to reduce the amount of virgin plastic produced and what gets discarded – and there are ways. For example, using recycled plastic so we aren’t adding to this number. In fact, using recycled plastic as an alternative to virgin plastic achieves a 70% reduction in carbon; a huge improvement.

There are often businesses – big, global organisations – who say that achieving 100% recycled plastic in their products is too difficult or too hard to achieve. We don’t accept that. It is possible. It is achievable. We know this because we did it. Our products at Delphis Eco are packaged in material made from 100% recycled plastic. It wasn’t an overnight achievement; in fact it took six years and a lot of patience, determination and sheer grit – but we did it!  And if we – as an SME – can do it then there is no excuse for anyone else in the cleaning sector to not do the same.

We do it by using recycled plastic bottles sourced from local authorities – diverting thousands of tonnes of plastic from going to landfill or the ocean. It’s this approach – i.e. a focus on bringing innovation and eco-friendly solutions to products – that closes the loop on single-use plastics. 

Of course it’s not just about the cleaning industry producing the ‘right’ products; it’s also about ensuring that consumers and businesses know what we’re doing and therefore making the right purchasing decisions. And change is starting to happen – for example, we worked with The Shaftesbury Estate, owners of Carnaby Street in London’s West End, on their Blue Turtle collaboration with ocean conservation organisation Project Zero, which inspires restaurant, bar and café community of Carnaby Street to take action to protect the ocean. Their ‘Blue Turtle’ scheme aims to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic products and encourages businesses to adopt more sustainable business practises.

However, for many there is still genuine confusion around what products and packaging are the kindest to our environment. There are over 28 different marks on what is, and what is not, recyclable. 

In research we conducted last year, 60% of people said they are confused about which types of plastic packaging are the most harmful to the environment and a further eight of out 10 said they would support clearer labelling of plastic packaging to help them determine its impact on the environment. It would certainly make it much easier if there was one definitive mark that clearly stated a product’s plastic credentials. 

This is why we launched a new Recycled Plastic Rating (RPR) mark in 2019; a rating scheme which instantly shows consumers the amount of recycled plastic content used in the packaging of the products they are buying. This radically simplifies the 28 possible options to just one industry standard. This will give the cleaning industry the ability to vote with their purchasing power and choose packaging that is diverting plastic from landfill; not adding to it.

The RPR enables all who work in the cleaning industry to see, at a glance, the exact plastic credentials of products they are using – and make necessary changes to other, more eco-friendly brands, if needs be. 

In order to turn this ‘plastic crisis’ on its head we need to all align our choices. We need to align on only using products with packaging that has been recycled. We need to align on only working with suppliers who package products responsibly – that way the suppliers that don’t, have no option but to bring to market products that are made from recycled plastic or risk going out of business. If we don’t buy their plastic products, they can’t sell them – it’s simple.

It’s largely about collaboration. If each professional reading this decided that today they would take action and make today the day they committed to using products with 100% recycled packaging they would reduce their carbon by 70% and change would happen.

The task is a mammoth one – but it’s not a solo endeavour.  At the risk of being repetitive,  it’s about collaboration. It’s about each and every person in the industry making changes. It’s about cleaning companies changing suppliers. It’s about suppliers changing manufacturers. And so on. Each change will result in another, and another, and another, until, collectively, it becomes a big change. It’s action that we take together, as a united cleaning industry that will have the real power behind it. We urge everyone in the industry to stand together, with ‘one voice, one vision’, and work together to make this happen.”

Coronavirus: Supplies run low of anti-bacterial hand-soaps 03/03/2020

Give single-use plastic a second life 09/10/2019

The general public and business united on 20th September, alongside Greta Thunberg’s London Global Climate Strike, to lobby industry and consumers alongside the Government to get behind the ‘Recycled Plastic Rating’.

This campaign sees the launch of a new trust mark enabling us to take back control of what plastic actually gets recycled, versus what gets dumped into the oceans.  

There is total confusion amongst operators and consumers with over 28 different marks on what is, and what is not, recyclable. And, a total breakdown in trust in what is segregated at home for recycling yet gets chucked into the same dump truck and, we now know, lands up in a foreign land and most likely the sea.

A first of its kind, the move to launch the new RPR, follows research that reveals that 79% of people support clearer labelling of plastic packaging to help them determine its impact on the environment and allow them to vote with their pockets when it comes to purchasing behaviour.  

The entrepreneur and philanthropist who is behind the RPR, Mark Jankovich, said: “There is more micro plastic in the ocean than stars believed to be in the galaxy!  Eight million tons of plastic, a dump truck a minute, ends up in our oceans each year, (and has a material impact on climate change through waste processes and new production of single life plastic).  We’ve got to stop this.

“Having a rating which shows the amount of recycled plastic content in the packaging we buy will instantly give caterers, retailers and consumers the power to vote with their wallets and chose packaging that is fundamentally diverting plastic from landfill. The RPR will enable everyone to see, at a glance, the exact plastic credentials of products they are purchasing."

Jankovich is the driving force behind the campaign alongside his eco-cleaning product company Delphis Eco, which was the first to pioneer the use of 100% recycled HDPE plastic packaging from single use plastic in 2017 across all its products.  

He continues: “We make the UK’s most eco-friendly cleaning products, which are also highly effective. Clearly, I buy a significant amount of plastic and it was inconceivable that I couldn’t buy UK collected and reprocessed single use plastic for my packaging. There wasn’t enough in the market to buy!

“The fact that the world only recycles 9% of the plastic it makes annually means that 91% goes into landfill, the ocean or is incinerated. This is horrendous and the days of sending our rubbish to a far away land and forgetting about it are over.

“We need to turn this completely on its head and not talk about what might or might not be recyclable, but what percentage of the packaging we are buying HAS been recycled. When consumers do this, manufacturers will have no choice but to package their products in more responsible packaging, resulting in the waste collectors, recyclers and Government fixing the woefully under-invested infrastructure and behaving more responsibly. This will divert millions of tons of single use plastic from going into the environment and circle it back as a totally new product.  

“There’s a 70% carbon reduction in recycling plastic versus creating virgin material. Recycling a single plastic bottle saves enough energy to light a 60w light bulb for 6 hours.  

“We’ve spoken to a number of companies, academic bodies and NGO’s and they all agree that there needs to be much more clarity and focus around what is recycled, and that we should unite behind one mark that consumers can trust. Like the successful Fairtrade and sustainably sourced fish marks, this will empower consumers to force shops to adopt better social and environmental behaviour.

“We are a proudly British SME which has broken the mould by proving that single-use plastic can be 100% recycled and in the UK. This process took over 6 years to perfect, with many difficulties. If we really want to try save our planet we need to collaborate with other businesses as fast as possible and ask professional businesses and consumers to insist that they will only buy products which have packaging made from recycled plastic content.

“The overall aim of the campaign is to radically simplify, from 28 possible options to just 1 industry standard, the Recycled Plastic Rating which consumers need to look out for when buying goods. Giving them total control at the point of purchase – rather than relying on a third party to do the right thing. We hope the Government will take action and make the new RPR mandatory on all packaging; encourage the acceleration of how single use plastic can be given a second life; and increase scrutiny of exactly HOW plastic is recycled in the UK."
