Swalmen, The Netherlands (ots/PRNewswire) - The
world's most sustainable washroom was on show at the Facilities
Exhibition in the Brabant Halls in Den Bosch, the Netherlands. Van
Houtum, based in Swalmen, the Netherlands, used the event to present
a completely equipped washroom, supplied with certified
cradle-to-cradle hygienic paper, hand soap and hand foam.

The Facilities Exhibition is aimed at professions involved with
providing Technical Services to commercial enterprises, education,
healthcare and the government.
Albert Mey, Washroom Concept Manager at Van Houtum, is
enthusiastic about the presentation of the sustainable washroom.
"Above all we wanted to use the event to showcase our products, which
are trailblazing in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility. This
is what sets us apart from other providers. Up to now the Satino
Black range consisted of toilet paper and paper towels. Now it
embraces hand soap and hand foam. Everything is certified
cradle-to-cradle and CO2-neutrally produced."
Black Satino Black dispensers
"The new Satino Black dispensers were also rolled out at the
Trades fair," Mey adds. "These are made of recycled plastic, an
innovation in this sector. The prestigious matte, anthracite black
finish is entirely in keeping with the trend in modern interiors. The
client can at the same time choose: whether we remain the owners of
the dispensers or whether the client prefers a residual value
guarantee as a stimulus to return old equipment to us again. This
fits in perfectly with our endeavours to improve our environmental
performance by closing the material recycling loop. Further, when we
install the new washroom facility for our clients, our installing
technician takes the old dispensers with him. These don't end up in
the garbage container, but are fed into the recycling process. All
old dispensers - regardless of the brand - are recycled in a high
quality process in which a pure starting material is recovered. The
end customer has one less thing to worry about and he saves costs."
Cradle-to-cradle certification is pending for the Satino Black
