AQUA CHEMPACS WAS AN EARLY LEADER IN DISSOLVABLE CONCENTRATED CLEANING PRODUCTS. HAVE YOU SEEN AN UPTICK IN INTEREST IN THESE TYPES OF PRODUCTS IN THE HOUSEHOLD CONSUMER MARKET?
We've been approached by numerous national brands to produce green, sustainable cleaning products. There has been a substantial increase in interest for dissolvable, concentrated packs. Today's consumers not only recycle, but they also think that companies should take the lead. Plastic waste is a top consumer concern -- especially when it ends up in landfills, oceans and waterways.
WHAT INNOVATIONS ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF FROM A SUSTAINABILITY STANDPOINT?
Traditional cleaning product packaging (premixed liquids in single use plastic containers) has worked for the past 100 years or so, keeping people safe and businesses up and running. It also brings some major problems -- namely plastic waste and carbon emissions. 91% of plastics are not recycled, and much of that ends up in landfills and oceans. We need to stop thinking only about what we can do with plastic waste once it's created, and instead think about what we can do to prevent it from being created in the first place. We take great pride knowing our 100% dissolvable packs replace heavy, outdated conventional products with lightweight packaging and the concept of keeping your bottle for future use. Every time an Aqua ChemPac bottle is reused, that is one less bottle polluting the environment!
WHAT'S NEXT FOR AQUA CHEMPACS?
Innovation is our focus and Aqua ChemPacs proudly continues to research new, sustainable packaging materials and formulations. We are also launching a consumer focused brand to complement our industrial line. To help accomplish this, Aqua ChemPacs is moving into a new, state of the art facility…7 times larger than our current home!
We believe we not only sell a product but a “system”. This system delivers on a key principle that you can’t manage what you don’t measure. This concept has met great success and cost savings with our retail chain customers in the form of custom cleaning kits. We believe, along with being “green”, our water-soluble technology will meet equal success with the consumer as well.
