W e all know that the world has to change directions if we are going to reverse the trend towards ecological damage and deterioration of human health.
We also know in many small ways we ourselves have been contributing. But whenever we have new and better choices, like reducing waste, reusing materials, and recycling, we are happy to get on board.
Now there is a significant new opportunity to shift course again, and this shift is particularly valuable to facility managers and home owners. The bar has been raised for carpet cleaners. Your customers need you to meet this challenge. The result is cleaner indoor air, lower health risks for building occupants and staff, fewer liabilities, and far less environmental impact for aquatic life.

Environmental Choice: PRC-097
In December 2001, Environment Canada's Environmental Choice Program introduced a new certification criteria entitled "".
PRC-097 recognizes the need to reduce pollution from cleaning surfactants that enter our aquatic environment. Specifically, it requires that cleaners certified under this criteria must avoid ingredients that are derived from or manufactured from ethylene oxide, a known carcinogen. It also requires that there be no phosphates, NTA, EDTA, APEO's, bio-accumulants and other carcinogens. PRC-097 also acknowledges in concrete terms the need to produce cleaners that are acceptable for use by hyper-sensitive individuals.
In short, PRC-097 is an ideal cleaning criteria to specify for use in your facilities. It is part of our transition to a better way of running the world. Don't miss the turn - make it part of your standard specifications today!

ECOgent Carpet Cleaner has been tested by the largest carpet mills and meets their required standards for cleanability and resoiling.

ECOgent "U.S. Pat. No.6,432,395" for Cleaning Composition Containing Naturally-Derived Components.

The New Route: Sustainable Surfactants
Most commercial and residential cleaning products are still using non-ionic surfactants derived from or manufactured with .
The problem with non-ionic surfactants is that some of them can adversely affect the reproductive systems of fish and other aquatic wildlife. And while many such surfactants are biodegradable, they often do not biodegrade readily under the anaerobic conditions found in some parts of our waterways.
It's not the kind of thing that we can get away with forever. Fortunately, there are now new-generation surfactants which are more sustainable - they are produced from renewable resources and the biodegrade readily without toxic effects or by-products.
