What makes these products green or environmentally conscious?
Our Mission at 0CS is aligned with our main Supplier Agar and tackles the need to be environmentally conscious from several fronts. We aim to supply our customers with the cleaning products they need to most effectively, productively and economically achieve their goals in terms of hygiene and cleanliness without risk to safety and our environment. Where possible the chemicals we supply do not use phosphates and continue to increase the use of natural, re-growable organic raw materials.
Several of the products we supply have the Environmental Choice Australia Mark an Australian standard awarded by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) for products which benefit the environment by reducing impacts.
Features of the Agar product range that promote environmental sustainability are:
• No toxic or harmful ingredients.
• High biodegradability is a key criterion in surfactant selection and product formulation.
• Use of plant derived, renewable-source ingredients where practical. Research and development continues in this area.
• Concentrated products with a considerable capacity for dilution, to guarantee performance and save on transport cost and energy usage, and storage space.
• Versatility to reduce the number of products in use at any specific site.
• Simple, understandable colour coded cleaning range for all daily cleaning tasks. This prevents confusion so that products are used and disposed of correctly.
• Consistently high quality and effectiveness so that there is no need to use excessive amounts of product.
• Ongoing research and development into better choice of ingredients and methods.
We collect empty containers for washing and re-use which reduces the consumption of energy and raw material required to produce new containers. Where this is not viable, recycling reduces the amount of plastic sent to landfill waste disposal. All packaging is made of recyclable materials.
Another safety initiative which has environmental benefits is our range of re-usable printed dispenser bottles. Ready to use solution is prepared in, or dispensed into these colour coded bottles for use on the job. When depleted they can be washed and re-filled using product supplied in concentrated or bulk form. This reduces waste through minimising discarded spray bottles and the transport required to ship them. The re-usable bottles also make cleaning safer and simpler. Buy buying in bulk you reduce the wastage of smaller bottles
Where are our products made?
All of OCS Online Cleaning Supplies products and chemicals are 100% Australian Made and Australian owned. This is important to us as we want to ensure that our clients are getting the best that Australia can offer.
What is the benefit to buying bulk?
With the purchase of 5L and 20L drums of the cleaning chemicals, we will supply you with a 500ml color coded spray bottle. This will allow you to repeatedly re-use the same spray bottle and dispense from the larger more concentrated drum. This will lower the impact you have on the environment buy not needing to use new plastic bottle every time you need to get more cleaning products
What is the delivery charges?
Orders over $150 can receive free local delivery. Where possible we will charge a flat rate for shipping, but specialised large orders and special products may require alternative arrangements for shipping.
