Jangro, the largest network of independent janitorial and cleaning distributors in the UK and Ireland, has announced that ntrl, its innovative range of natural cleaning products, is registered with The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark. An internationally recognised standard, The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark certifies that all products registered are free of all animal use, in ingredients and testing.
The ntrl portfolio comprises thirteen products ideal for cleaning surfaces in a variety of environments. All use raw materials that are derived from plant-based extracts. Their natural formulas are 100 per cent biodegradable, contain zero petrochemicals, and can reduce the product’s carbon footprint by up to 85 per cent. Products come super-concentrated too, giving more uses out of a single container.
The ntrl Washroom Cleaner and the ntrl Multi-Surface Cleaner also harness revolutionary, probiotic cleaning. Rather than killing germs with chemicals, probiotics use beneficial bacteria to colonise surfaces, in effect taking over the area, including deep into hard-to-reach cracks and crevices. This means they can help to reduce the presence of harmful bacteria on surfaces and carry on working after they have been cleaned.
Joanne Gilliard, CEO at Jangro, commented: “The number of vegans in the UK quadrupled in the five years between 2014 and 2019 to make 600,000 vegans, or 1.16 per cent of the Great British population. This trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon – in fact, according to research over half (56 per cent) of Brits adopt vegan buying behaviours such as buying vegan products. We are proud to add a certified vegan cleaning range to our offering. The Vegan Society’s Trademark helps customers identify products that really are free from animal ingredients. We are thrilled that the ntrl range has been verified by The Vegan Society and can offer that added level of confidence.”
The full range includes: Washroom Cleaner; Toilet Cleaner; Foaming Washroom & Toilet Cleaner; Foam Hand Soap; Alcohol-Free Foam Hand Sanitiser; Multi-Surface Cleaner; Washing Up Liquid; Cleaner & Degreaser; Surface Sanitisers (available with and without fragrance); Organic Descaler; Kitchen Sanitiser; and an All-Surface Cleaner.
All packaging is recycled and recyclable. Since products are packaged into PCR (post-consumer recycled bottles), CO2 emissions are reduced and physical plastic pollution removed. Outer boxes are made from 100 per cent recycled and FSC certified cardboard.
Produced to ISO 9001 and 14001 QMS standards, 100 per cent of the range is made in the UK.
