STCC Reader Offer: 10% off Aquapak’s soluble laundry bags

LCN is delighted to be teaming up with Aquapak Polymers to offer our readers an exclusive 10% discount on fully-soluble

laundry bags made from HydropolTM.

Designed to support and strengthen your Covid-19 hygiene plans and laundry protocols, HydropolTM laundry bags are

strong and reduce the dwell time of pathogens. They are put directly into washing machines thereby eliminating the need

to empty traditional linen bags.  By dissolving fully on a 70C wash they minimise they risk of cross-contamination from

infected laundry whilst leaving no residue in machines or on washed items. They are safe for the environment too as

Hydropol is inherently biodegradable, non-toxic and marine-safe. 

Aquapak Polymers is offering this exclusive reader discount In conjunction with their British manufacturing partner,

Echo Packaging.

Vision Support Services launches new sustainable textiles brand

The new September-launched ecopure product range from Vision Support Services offers everything required to produce a complete and eco-friendly guest room from duvets to pillows, to flat bed linen, towels, bathrobes and slippers, said the company.

One of the biggest trends in hospitality for 2020 is that of the eco-conscious guest, said Vision, with the current spotlight on climate change making hotel guests increasingly aware of environmental responsibility. Research published reveals that 60% of travellers who are loyal to a hotel brand say that the brand's corporate responsibility is a key factor in their loyalty.

According to Vison, the world is now listening and reacting to the negative impact and implications of human consumption on the planet. This clear eco movement is now touching all industry sectors, and the results can be seen across the global hospitality brands.
