  • At Tennant Company, we are a leading provider of environmental cleaning solutions These are the products and solutions we provide to meet the needs of our customers Our focus on sustainability naturally leads to a focus on the increasingly important concept of “Green Cleaning.” Green Cleaning has become important everywhere and is in many cases becoming critical in hospitals, schools, and other facilities Consistent with our commitment to sustainability, we want to do our part and help our customers do their part to conserve vital resources and lessen impact on our environment for future generations An Iroquois Law states, “When we make decisions, we should consider their impact upon the next seven generations”

Then, there are packaging, storage, and handling requirements. Employees must also take safety precautions. And, traditional chemicals create chemical waste On the bottom, you see the dramatically reduced impact of ech 2 o In this case, you start with water and end with water This exciting technology electrically activates tap water to create a powerful cleaning solution that reverts back to water before it is discarded THIS SLIDE IS INTENDED ONLY TO EXPLAIN ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF ECH2O.
