Our new Full Circle service is giving pre-loved machines a new lease on life.
During the latter part of the 20th Century, there was very much a disposable attitude to almost everything. Whether it be fashion, packaging, or electronics. Once it was finished or no longer fit for purpose, it would be thrown away.
That has now changed, particularly over the last 10 years. Components are being repurposed more, using very few finite resources, and the energy to help repurpose is renewable.
Even items like office floor tiles can now be leased. When they need replacing, they are taken away, the rubber and fibers are separated and regenerated using renewable energy.
The emphasis for doing this is to protect the planet’s finite resources. With current levels of usage, it is predicted many of those resources such as Oil, Gas, and even Tungsten (which is a component of smartphones), will become severely depleted over the next 50-100 years.
GreenEarth Cleaning’s proprietary liquid silicone is in itself circular. It is used within a closed-loop system so that any waste can be collected and disposed of in a responsible way, and much of the solvent can be reused for many loads. In addition, because it’s mild and gentle, it contributes to garments lasting longer and having a continued life through donating or passing on to friends and family.
But it doesn’t end there, the GreenEarth Technical team has started applying these principles to machine restoration.
With many used machines becoming available in the past couple of years, we have taken advantage of our technical knowledge and are actively refurbishing good quality machines through our “Full Circle” service.
The process is extensive and worth doing in order to provide value to Affiliates that are investing in their business, and want to lower the capital cost of doing so with a reliable pre-loved machine.
It goes to show that what is one person’s trash could be another person’s treasure. So, think twice before disposing of any item, it could have a second life somewhere you may not expect!
