by Brianna Crandall — December 8, 2021 — Tork, an Essity brand, has extended its industrial cleaning offering with new products and packaging, including the new Tork Biobased Heavy-Duty Cleaning Cloth, to strengthen customers’ businesses through sustainable hygiene management.
Today, meeting hygiene expectations is critical, and businesses are demanding products that help them meet sustainability goals while increasing productivity, points out the company. With products like the new Tork Biobased Heavy-Duty Cleaning Cloth, customers can do both. The cloth is made from 99% biobased fibers, plant-based and sustainably sourced, allowing customers to benefit from improved absorption, durability, linting and solvent consumption while reducing their environmental impact.
Sustainability will only become more important for businesses in the future, according to a 2020 international survey commissioned by Essity. Therefore, Tork says it continues to enhance its range of products and make them more sustainable with improved packaging. Tork packaging now uses 30% recycled plastics (helping to close the loop and reduce virgin plastic consumption) and 100% recycled cardboard fibers.
Tork is also decreasing the environmental impact of products like exelCLEAN cloths by reducing the cloths’ carbon footprint by 28% over the last decade.
In addition to its sustainability efforts, Tork has introduced upgrades that make dispensing more efficient. Tork Cleaning Cloths are now interfolded for easier, faster access, and one-at-a-time dispensing means customers only touch what they take, reducing waste and cross-contamination.
Sustainability will continue to be a significant factor in customer choices. With continued innovation to design and packaging, Tork hygiene products are designed to meet this need by maximizing efficiency and delivering greater sustainability — all while maintaining rigorous performance standards.
