OUR GREEN SOLUTIONS
CHOOSE PRODUCTS MADE FROM RECYCLING MATERIALS, GUARANTEED BY A SAFE CERTIFIED ECOLOGICAL MARK
THE LINES WITH PSV CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
Filmop is proud to be the very first Italian manufacturer of janitorial products to get the Plastic Second Life certification by the Institute for the Promotion of Recycled Plastics (IPPR).
PSV is the first Italian and European trademark for recycled plastic materials: a product’s environmental certification to guarantee, highlight and identify more easily all products manufactured by using recycled plastics.
Nowadays Public Authorities are obliged to purchase a minimal amount of products made from recycled materials, for all cleaning distributors selling to public authorities this means to offer products with PSV certified components and to be qualified as preferred suppliers in accordance with the policies defined in the GPP (Green Public Procurement).
Filmop offers different product lines with components with high PSV polypropylene percentages than minimum required, maintaining original colors, variety of models and the same quality as before.
Moreover, Filmop promotes total recycling of end-of-life products: the whole range of plastic products, entirely made in Italy, is 100% recyclable.
DOSE EQUITABLY, SAVE CLEANING SOLUTION
CHANGE YOUR WAY, CHOOSE A MORE ECO-FRIENDLY CLEANING!
Equodose is the innovating mechanical dosing device developed by Filmop to soak on demand only the mops required by the cleaning service directly on site.
The system is designed with an adjustable dosing mechanism always ready to use, representing the ideal solution for emergency cleaning and extraordinary sanitization.
It is a green solution because it guarantees:
- SAVING OF CLEANING SOLUTION: you can soak only the required mops and only the side of the mop that gets in contact with the floor
- HIGH FLEXIBILITY: you can dose the quantity of cleaning solution for each mop, according to the surface to clean
- ENERGY SAVING: you do not consume electric power since the dosing system is totally mechanical and does not require batteries
- MATERIAL RECYCLING: you use a 100% recyclable product made of high quality Made In Italy materials
MICROFIBERS WIDE RANGE
FILMOP MICROFIBERS: HIGH EFFICIENCY TOWARDS GREEN
Filmop offers a wide variety of microfiber mops and flat mops characterized by high quality and proven effectiveness: the very thin filaments that characterize the entire range enter the microporosity of the surface catching the dirt and releasing it only when the textile is washed.
They also effectively remove germs and bacteria, ensuring a high level of hygiene.
Not only that: microfiber greatly reduces water and chemical consumption and has greater resistance to washing than natural yarns, ensuring a long-life cycle of textiles.
The microfibers offered by Filmop, moreover, have a dTex ≤ 1 which makes them compliant with the Minimum Environmental Criteria (DM 29-01-2021). A green choice!
EU ECOLABEL CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
Filmop has obtained, for some textile product lines, the prestigious EU Ecolabel certification, the European Union eco-label that rewards best eco-friendly products.
The certification attests the low environmental impact of the products after having analyzed their sustainability throughout their entire life cycle through a series of very selective parameters, established by the European Community.
USE PRODUCTS THAT PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND HEALTH
TEXTILES PROTECTING AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS AND OUR HEALTH
The presence of microplastic particles in aquatic ecosystems has attracted widespread attention in recent years and has become the subject of an increasing number of studies motivated by environmental and health concerns. The causes of the tiny pieces of plastic material reaching the oceans are many, including abrasion of synthetic fabrics during washing, which causes the fibres to shed. The amount of microplastics released varies from textile to textile, so quantifying them allows an objective evaluation of the impact.
Eco Multi-T manual cloth and Micro-Activa, Twist-Tuft, Rapido Super Extra, Rapido Super, Rapido, Duo Face Wash Basic, Puli-Brush and Puli-Scrub mops were tested by a highly specialised independent laboratory for the release of microplastics.
All products passed with flying colours: the analysis showed particularly low release during washing and rinsing by Eco Multi-T cloth and Micro-Activa, Twist-Tuft, Duo Face Wash Basic, Puli-Brush and Puli-Scrub mops, which received the highest rating. In addition, low release was noted for Rapido Super Extra, Rapido Super and Rapido mops.
EFFECTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE DUSTING
To reduce the use of resources and enhance the waste cycle, the Minimum Environmental Criteria (DM 29-01-2021) require the exclusive use of recycled textiles for dusting operations in civil buildings and environments.
Filmop’s 100% cotton, regular cotton and first rate cotton mops are CAM compliant as they are made from the highest quality cotton derived from recycling.
The unique range ensures highly effective dust mopping: unlike traditional systems that lift dust into the air and deposit it back on surfaces, Filmop’s recycled cotton mops attract, capture, and hold even the smallest dust particles.
SYSTEMS THAT MAKE WASTE COLLECTION EASIER
WITH FILMOP YOU REALLY MAKE... THE DIFFERENCE!
Filmop realized an exclusive product to make separate waste collection easier: AlphaSplit is the first and only trolley in the market that can be customized up to 8 different compartments.
Thanks to the innovative 90 L bag holder with removable lower drawer it is possible to find the right place for every kind of rubbish in only one collection compartment.
As Alpha line, AlphaSplit trolleys as well are made of components made of PSV - Plastic Second Life with a minimum of 30% recycled plastics deriving exclusively from certified suppliers which have been selected.
Filmop completes the range of products for a simpler and more efficient waste collection with several bins with color coding system, nice and easy to clean.
ANOTHER GREEN GOAL ACHIEVED
GET TO KNOW THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT TO CHOOSE RESPONSIBLY
A long work of analysis, planning and development has allowed us to implement a system for the quantification of the Product Carbon Footprint based on a systematic approach, in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 14067:2018 standard.
An independent and accredited verification body, which has certified the system implemented after having carried out an accurate assessment, has recognized the work carried out: through the Carbon Footprint Systematic Approach, Filmop can now quantify the CO2e related to each phase of the lifecycle of the entire range of trolleys, from buckets and mop trolleys to multipurpose trolleys, including service trolleys.
Measuring the climate footprint of the products and turning it into an objective data allows to implement specific actions aimed at offsetting emissions. In this regard, in 2011 Filmop has already become energy self-sufficient, avoiding releasing tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. Quantifying the impact of products in terms of emissions is the next step taken by the company, which lays the basis for the implementation of new and even more targeted offsetting actions, in addition to the production and use of renewable energy for over a decade.
TEXTILE PRODUCT MANUFACTURED USING SOLAR ENERGY
GREEN ENERGY FOR A BETTER FUTURE!
At a time when safeguarding our environment is a world-heavy need, Filmop is strongly committed to a policy of sustainable development.
Sustainable development is a process of change aimed at improving the environmental economic, social and institutional conditions of nations.
This process involves the exploitation of natural resources, a direction of investment and an orientation for technological development consistent with the needs of current and future generations.
Filmop in 2011 chose to install a photovoltaic system complex at its headquarters.
The solar energy produced is capable of fully fuelling the company’s textile production, avoiding releasing about 110 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere.
