What is a green washroom?
Going green is no longer simply about using
recycled products; it is about ensuring that you are
considered to be an ethical business in the eyes
of your clients, customers and employees. Being
‘green’ is about using products that create
a healthy environment and enhance the workplace.
Through considered purchasing and concerted
communication, going green can add significant

Green products consider all aspects of their
production process including their origin,
manufacture, usage and waste disposal. Green
products consider the energy efficiency of the
manufacturing process, the volume of natural
resources used, the emissions created and the
packaging used to transport them. Being recycled
is simply no longer enough.
