What do this mean for you, the customer?
It means that if you want to ‘go green’ with your paper consumables, you don’t have to use a recycled product.
Many of Katrin virgin paper products are even more environmentally friendly than most recycled paper products.
Therefore, you don’t have to put up with grey coloured products just because you’re opting for environmentally friendly products.
Because virgin fibres are used in most of the Katrin range, there is no need for glue to hold products together. This means they breakdown very quickly and prevent blockages in your drains.
It’s also worth having a fresh look at your dispensing systems for toilet rolls and hand drying. There are several ‘quick wins’ you can achieve for added sustainability just by switching to a different fold of hand towel or type of dispenser.
A general rule of thumb is that C Folds are poor at performing in dispensers. Out of dispensers they are fine but use a Z Fold or an I Fold when they are housed in a dispenser.
One of the best solutions we’ve offered our customers who need a high capacity dispenser for hand drying is the Katrin System Roll Towel. We have fitted over 250 of these in the last year already.
Would this be the answer to a more empty waste bin in your washroom?
