Following a successful trial, 3663 has teamed up with Delphis Eco, a British manufacturer of ecological chemicals, on an exclusive deal to help schools across the country enhance their green credentials. The partnership aims to reduce water pollution across the UK by encouraging schools to re-evaluate the way they use chemicals and make a switch to ecological cleaning products.
The partnership will leverage 3663's nationwide distribution network, expert advice and support from non-food specialists to distribute Delphis Eco's cutting edge chemicals to ecologically minded schools. Using Delphis Eco products will count towards Green Flag and Silver Award Eco-Schools accreditation.
Eco-Schools provide a framework to help guide schools on their sustainable journey and in England, the programme is operated by Keep Britain Tidy with more than 17,000 schools taking part, making it the largest sustainable schools programme in the world.
Tony Ball, director of 3663, said: "Having introduced the range to nearly 500 schools across Hertfordshire, offering a product rationalisation from 12 to seven, we were able to offer a considerable cost in use savings to our customers.
"Following this successful trial, we're delighted to partner with Delphis Eco on a national basis to offer its eco-friendly range to all of our customers. 3663 has an extremely strong background in sustainability and it is a natural fit for us to offer schools a range of products that will help them achieve their own sustainability goals."
