4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND Biodegradability: It is the decomposition of organic substances into carbon dioxide, water and other harmless substances. Rapid biodegradation reduces impact on the environment and the food chain. Rapid biodegradation is the ratio of BOD over COD being 60% threshold in a 10 day window over a 28 day limit. All our organic cleaning ingredients are readily biodegradable per OECD (Organization of Economic Development) Test 301 D at use dilution under load and simulated real life conditions as tested by Ortech, a Canadian government certified lab and research company. In addition, the dosage levels are at least equal to stand products thereby lessening the total burden on the environment.
Toxicity: It is defined a being a chemical which has an LD 50 of 50 milligrams (mg) or less of chemical per kilogram (kg) of body weight. The greater of LD 50, the less toxic the product. (50 mg/kg is equal to a dosage of approximately ¾ of a teaspoon for the average adult and 1/8 of a teaspoon for the average two-year-old child.) (Note: Salt=LD 50 of 3000; Baking Soda = LD 50 of 4220; Vinegar = LD 50 of 3000.) Our core products are considered essentially non-toxic (acute oral/dermal) according to WHMIS and OSHA regulations, for all but government approved disinfectants. Aquatic Toxicity: Our core cleaning products exceed acute toxicity standards for fish, daphnia magna and algae at use dilutions, thereby minimizing the impact on fish, wildlife, drinking water and swimming locations. This is very important to humans as it has a direct effect since it is the beginning of the food chain and a major source for drinking water. Aquatic toxicity at use should be greater than 100 mg/L. 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
All tests: Biodegradability, Toxicity and Aquatic Toxicity are conducted by independent labs. Hazardous Ingredients: Our products contain no carcinogens, mutagens, or teratogens. None of our cleaning products contain ingredients found on the US Department of Health’s “Hazardous Substances Fact Sheet,” SARA – CFR 372 (Toxic Chemicals), Cercla – 102 – 40 CFR 302 (Hazardous Substances), RCRA – CFR 261 (Hazardous Air Pollutants), Clean Water Act – 313 –40 CFR 63 (Hazardous Water Pollutants), National Pollutant Release Inventory 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Surfactants: The ones we use are carefully selected so as to have the least negative effect on the environment. We do not use NPE’s, APE’s, OPE’s, LAS (Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates) or DSBA, common in many cleaners Many cleaners claim ready biodegradability based on ingredient based testing. The review of detergents (surfactants) in the inland waters identified the most common surfactants used LAS (Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates) a being present in significant amounts even though LAS is readily biodegradable Many surfactants used in the common household and commercial cleaners are not normally tested for effluent discharge by municipal waste treatment plants even though they represent a significant percentage of surfactants entering waste treatment plants 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Surfactants: In review of detergents (surfactants) in the inland waters the following conclusions were reached: Environmental concentrations of surfactants in the inland waters around populated centers range between mg/L and 2 mg/L Surfactants can be toxic to aquatic life at concentrations as low as mg/L Surfactants have demonstrated effects on aquatic life at concentrations as low as mg/L Surfactants have demonstrated synergy with many chemical compounds and may interact with other more toxic pollutants to create mixtures of unknown toxicological properties None of our cleaners use NPE’s, APE’s, OPE’s, LAS or DSBA. In general, we rely on chelating agents (such as sodium citrate) that do not encourage the purification of water 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
4. 4.TO BE PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND BUILDERS: Must be carefully selected to biodegrade readily to compounds with low environmental concerns and mild pH For example: Use - Sodium Citrate - Silicates - Zeolites - Maleic Anhydride Derivatives (iminodisuccinate and polyaspartic acid) Do Not Use- Inorganic phosphates - Caustics (sodium metasilicate) - NTA - EDTA - MEA
4. 4.TO BE PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND SOLVENTS: Must be carefully selected to be low in toxicity to the environment and to humans For example: Use - Propylene Glycol Ethers - Methyl Soyate - Ethyle Lactate Do Not Use - Ethylene Glycol - Butyl Cellusolve - D’Limonene
Naturally Renewable Resources: Whenever possible, only naturally-based, renewable ingredients – such as grains, corn oils, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, sugar cane juice, glucoses and corn and soy based ethyl esters replacing petroleum based solvents – are used in our products. Traditional formulas are typically based on petroleum and non-renewable resources that have definite negative impact both when they are being manufactured, and again when they are released back into our atmosphere. In addition, they have negative effects on health 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Ozone Depleting Ingredients and Phosphates are not contained in any product! 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Packaging: Subject to availability, our bottles and jugs are made from post- and pre- consumer regrind. Most labels are printed using vegetable inks or plastic, easy to remove sleeves. The cartons are made from recycled cardboard, both pre- and post- consumer Where possible, products are concentrated, thereby reducing chemicals and packaging, consequently waste, while reducing use costs for end-users and transportation costs for distributors 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Endorsements: Eco-Logo/Environment Choice Program (Environment Canada) ECP - 57 for the core Cleaners – 14 products Green Seal (United States) – 5 products No other company has such a wide variety of products Certified by the leading Certification Bodies in North America. 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
December 20, 2002 Dell Tech Laboratories is a regulatory consulting firm that has been providing guidance to manufacturers and users of chemical products for over 22 years, with a focus on regulatory compliance, product safety and government registrations. Our services include product assessments, reviews and classification of products under the Hazardous Product Act, both for consumer and industrial workplace regulations. We are a Canadian General Standards Board certified testing laboratory under the requirements of ISO Guide 25. Our clients include small and medium size manufacturers in Canada and the United States as well as large multinational companies. With greater environmental concerns in today's world, many different standards and criteria have been developed. Green Seal Inc. and the Environmental Choice Program have issued two of the more popular standards. We have compared the Green Seal Industrial and Institutional Cleaners standard GS-37 to the Environmental Choice Industrial and Commercial Cleaners standard ECP-57 below:
In my expert opinion, GS 37 and ECP 57 are very similar with no material overall differences/impact regarding safety or protection for the environment. John Ott Dell Tech Laboratories Ltd. Senior Business Development Manager (519) ext
4. 4.PROVEN MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND Conclusion: Our products have been independently proven to be more environmentally sound with respect to total burden/impact. We make a focused effort on ensuring our detergent residues that end up in the aquatic environment are minimized in quantity, toxicity and other harmful components and factors.
5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE An important requirement for product selections should be HEALTH and SAFETY Products that are: Safer for the users Safer for the workplace environment Obligation to employees, customers, patrons and visitors Limit liability Reduce absenteeism caused by illness related to work Reduce costs related to accidents, workers safety and compensation
People Are Safer Because: Our products contain no known or suspected Carcinogens (cancer forming) Mutagens (causes deformities) Teratogens (causes reproductive embryo deformities) None of our cleaning products contain ingredients on Regulatory Lists (SARA, CERCLA, CWA, NPRI) nor bleach No products contain ingredients that are on the US Department of Health Hazardous/Substance Fact Sheet 5. 5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE
People Are Safer Because: No products cause serious skin irritation, respiratory problems or damage nasal membranes Our core products are extremely mild to the skin which reduces the incidence of contact dermatitis, often associated with traditional detergents All cleaning products are essentially non-toxic by WHMIS and OSHA standards. Toxicity can harm people by inhalation of the vapours, absorption through the skin, and through potential ingestion 5. 5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE
People Are Safer Because: All core products at use dilution are considered: Non flammable Non corrosive Most products are not regulated by DOT/TDGA No special storage requirements are necessary for most of our products 5. 5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE
People Are Safer Because: All products meet California standards for VOC levels All products contain very low fragrance levels. We use a very effective “Envirocide” odor eliminator that is non-toxic, biodegradable, non-flammable, or uses no chlorine, hydrogen peroxide or other corrosive or dangerous chemicals Disinfectants 64 & 256 are methicillin resistant (MRSA), hospital grade, effective against 32 bacteria including HIV and VRE, neutralize malodors, control mildew, and have neutral pHs 5. 5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS): The full 16 – point format is utilized so that you can get all the information you need to assess the health/safety/environment attributes. This includes: Full disclosure on every ingredient in the formula. We do not just list the ingredients controlled by WHMIS and OSHA and/or being greater than 1% of the product The individual ingredients, as well as total formula, LD50 information so you know complete toxicological information Ecological information Biodegradability Aquatic toxicity Complete environmental regulatory information Compare what you find on our MSDS with the major competitors and you will see why we are leaders in this segment 5. 5.PROVEN SAFER FOR PEOPLE
5. COMMONLY USED HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS
LIMITED USE SUBSTANCES:
HEALTH WARNING CATEGORY AND CHEMICAL:
Sources: NPRI – NPRI List The Green Encyclopedia – Irene Frank & David Brownstone CERCLA – Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act – Release of hazardous substances in spills and fro inactive or abandoned disposal sites SARA 313 – Toxic Chemicals
The aforementioned are hazardous; therefore, must be limited subject to product performance, overall human safety and environmental soundness. The preceding lists are not intended to be complete, but rather to demonstrate. A good resource for the impact of cleaning products is: - Enter the CAS number and a report will be given. You should try to eliminate or at least reduce these chemicals. Where not possible, select products with the least amount of the ingredients by percentage at the product use dilution rate. 5.
