Foodservice operator 3663 has teamed up with UK ecological chemical maker Delphis Eco, in an exclusive deal to help schools improve their green credentials.
The partnership aims to reduce water pollution by encouraging schools to re-evaluate the way they use chemicals and make a switch to ecological cleaning products.
3663 will use its nationwide distribution network to distribute Delphis Eco’s chemicals to ecologically-minded schools. In turn, the schools using the products will earn points towards Green Flag and Silver Award Eco-Schools accreditation.
Eco-Schools is an internationally recognised award programme that helps schools improve their green credentials. In England, the programme is operated by Keep Britain Tidy and more than 17,000 schools already take part, making Eco-Schools England the largest sustainable schools programme in the world.
Tony Ball, a director at 3663, said: “Having introduced the range to nearly 500 schools across Hertfordshire, with a product rationalisation from 12 to seven, we were able to offer a considerable cost in use savings to our customers.”
