UK eco-friendly cleaning products company, Delphis Eco, which supplies innovative products to the commercial and retail markets, has launched its next Delphis Hero.
Sam Lawrence, the General Manager at eco-conscious contract catering company, BM, looking after the catering for one of the biggest global law firms, is the face of the new campaign.
Delphis has a long-standing relationship with BM having worked collaboratively for nearly a decade supplying cleaning products for its contract catering business, which services more than 45,000 customers across 100 locations in the UK. Lawrence and her team at the central London site serve over 900 people a day working across 12 floors of commercial kitchens, executive dining rooms and corporate boardrooms.
BM was the first contract caterer to achieve certification by Planet Mark on measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and is one of the most sustainable contract caterers operating in the UK. More specifically the site Lawrence manages has recently introduced ‘carbon labelling’ on its dishes so customers can choose the dish with the lower carbon footprint. By doing this and other initiatives they have reduced food waste from 26 per cent to eight per cent.
Delphis Eco launched its Delphis Heroes Campaign in July this year with Michelle Thomas, New Openings Manager at room2, the leading hometel brand, and part of Lamington Group.
Lawrence is the second Hero to feature on a captivating and enormous 48-sheet tube advert at Bank Station on the Northern Line, a 10-minute walk from the BM’s site where Lawrence works. The stunning eye-catching displays will take the spotlight for a two-week period, at the end of October/beginning of November. Her quote will also feature on the front of new bottle for the Anti-Bacterial Sanitiser and Cleaner, Lawrence’s favourite Delphis Eco product.
Delphis Eco has been a respected partner of cleaning products to the commercial market for the last 16 years. The shift into the retail market has been instigated by a continuous push by commercial customers to offer a range they could use at home. The labels on its retail packaging already have quotes from other commercial partners.
Delphis Eco’s CEO and Founder, Mark Jankovich, commented: “With such symbiosis between Delphis’ B2B and B2C ranges, the Hero Campaign is designed to champion Delphis’ commercial partners, the real heroes behind Delphis Eco, and we’re delighted that Sam wanted to be part of it.
“Indeed, it’s BM’s hard work, commitment to sustainability and trust in Delphis’ products that places them as leaders in this space. The campaign also draws attention to the importance of using sustainable, non-toxic cleaning products and highlights how using eco-friendly cleaning products is a simple yet effective solution people can adopt to become more sustainable.”
Lawrence commented: “I am delighted to be part of the Delphis Eco Heroes Campaign as we are huge advocates of the amazingly sustainable cleaning products and use them at home as well as at work.
“I have worked in this industry since the age of 16 since when I started out as a chef, and know only too well just how important it is to have effective products for cleaning workspaces. We absolutely love the Delphis Eco Anti-Bacterial Sanitiser and Cleaner as it’s not only a brilliant product but we know it’s safe for our team to use.”
Executive Chairman, Wendy Bartlett, explains that working with Delphis Eco offers real synergy to the ethos and values of the business: “Sustainability and ethics underpin everything we do, and we know it’s the same at Delphis Eco. We have a mantra that ‘what gets measured gets done’ and we value products that are proven to be non-harmful to our planet, yet able to deliver the heavy lifting that we need within our catering business. Delphis Eco products do just that.
“Not only is this about the products themselves, which are highly effective yet non-toxic, but it’s also about the packaging and taking plastic out of the economy. Delphis’ products come packed in 100 per cent recycled plastic casing, so this is about being kind to the environment in many different ways.”
Jankovich concludes: “Working with industry professionals, such as Sam, who have first-hand experience of using our products can reassure retail customers of our credibility – who are naturally sceptical about the effectiveness of eco-friendly cleaning products and most likely, their green credentials too.
“If our professional partners love our products and trust our environmental accreditations, we are confident these products can be just as effective and loved in people’s homes.”
Delphis Eco products are available at Waitrose, Ocado, and Amazon.
