Evans Vanodine Greentick Products
Wright Enviromental Impact Rating
Every chemical has some impact on the enviroment. There are many "Green" schemes used in the cleaning industry but none take into account all of the relevant factors. Evans Vanodine have an innovative system for classifying products according to their overall enviromental impact. Devised by one of their experienced research chemists, the WEIR system uses a set of seven criteria to analyse products.
1 - Raw materials used
2 - Impact of usage
3 - Risk of release
4 - pH balance
5 - Enviromental hazard class
6 - Impact of energy to manufacturer
7 - Impact of water used.
Every janitorial product in the Evans range is analysed using the WEIR system and awarded a score for each of the seven criteria. The lower the overall product score, the lower the impact on the enviroment. Products which achieve a low impact rating are identified with a green tick WEIR logo on the label.
One advantage of WEIR is that it enables us to highlight the lowest impact product within each category. This helps you to choose the most appropriate product for your task, whilst still attaining the best results. Using a low impact product to carry out a cleaning task in the wrong circumstance does not serve the best interest of the enviroment, therefore it is important to:-
• Select the right product for the job
• Use the recommended dilution rate
• Dispose of it responsibly
