Going for gold Part One:


IN A TWO-PART SERIES, EMMA NOURRY, TRADE MARKETING MANAGER AT GEORGIA-PACIFIC GB, LOOKS AT SUSTAINABLE CLEANING; PART ONE HAS PAPER CONSUMPTION AND THE 2012 OLYMPICS IN MIND.


Sustainability continues to be high on the agenda in 2011, with this year predicted to be the pivotal year for UK Green businesses. The Government is moving ahead with plans to be the greenest government, introducing the Green Deal, Green Investment bank and not least with its plans for the 2012 Olympics to become the greenest games ever, having imbedded sustainability into its planning from the start.


The Olympics will host the games across 34 stadiums and venues, all of which are being built to an the highest specification for the World’s top athletes, not to mention the improvements being made to hotels and other facilities across the east of London in preparation for the 9 million spectators the event is predicted to attract.


Going for green With the UK’s promise to host the Greenest Olympics in 2012, venues, stadiums and other facilities can focus on working towards achieving the ultimate in eco-friendly service, in washrooms and beyond. By ensuring they are using the most ecologically sound commodities available to them, facilities managers across all sectors can simultaneously look after the environment, save money and leave a lasting impression on end-users, including those attracted during the Olympic Games.


Products like the Lotus Professional® SmartOne®


toilet tissue system offer


a sustainable solution to cost-effective and hygienic toilet roll dispensing, whilst also maintaining a sleek and clean washroom image.


Smart on paper The SmartOne®


system has a controlled dispensing function; meaning just one sheet


of paper is issued at a time, reducing paper consumption by up to 42% (2005 Research conducted in European Countries. Statistics based on ten users per cubicle, per hour over a 24 hour period) and preventing unnecessary waste. This function can also help facilities managers maintain a cleaner washroom, as the limited dispensing means less waste ends up on the floor.


Reducing paper consumption is at the core of the sustainability initiative, Green by Design®


, with product design focusing on


encouraging people to minimize waste by making it easy to take only the amount of paper required. The controlled dispensing function of the SmartOne® system characterises this initiative, whilst also saving on costs and helping facilities to maintain a positive impression on its end-users.


Green hygiene In high-traffic public facilities, cleanliness and sanitation is crucial to end-user satisfaction and to preventing cross-contamination, but can be difficult to maintain. Changing rooms and washrooms in particular should aim to maintain the highest standard of hygiene, whilst also meeting requirements on cost and sustainability.


The SmartOne® Professional®


system from the Lotus brand offers high levels of


cleanliness, as only the sheet being taken from the fully enclosed dispenser, is touched by the user. The SmartOne®


toilet tissue


dispenser boasts a polycarbonate shell which is extremely robust, and is also lockable. This superior design therefore not only helps to prevent cross-contamination and provide ultimate hygiene but also avoids unwanted items from being placed inside the dispensing unit.


Premier style The sleek and elegant design of the SmartOne®


system is an added benefit


for facilities managers wanting to project a good image using the latest innovations in washroom design throughout the Olympic Games and beyond.


By switching to sustainable products with proven results, like the SmartOne® toilet tissue system, stadiums and other sporting facilities can actively contribute to a greener 2011, as well as maintaining a clean image, ensuring the highest level of end-user satisfaction.
