Sustainable Cleaning

Sustainability has always been a key part of our ethos and we have always focused on minimising the impact on the environment by recycling waste, using renewable energy and sourcing local and seasonal produce where possible, however we were determined to include sustainable cleaning.

In an effort to become even more sustainable, we realised we needed to adopt a more eco-friendly way of cleaning so we made the switch to Delphis Eco, the leading manufacturer of ecological cleaning products in the UK.

We were impressed that the range of Delphis Eco’s products were not only very effective but also carbon neutral, non-scented and that the bottles are refilled and diluted from concentrate at a central dosing station in the kitchen.

Our students are encouraged to think about sustainability and consider how they could lessen their impact on the environment. Our principal, Rosalind, says “We show our students how easy it is to be more sustainable at home and at work just by making small tweaks, such as thinking about which products they use, sourcing local and seasonal ingredients and not using cling film or foil.”

With Delphis Eco, all products are made from ecological ingredients making them safer for the environment and the people using them. It doesn’t pollute the environment, and for us that’s very important. Lots of cleaning chemicals contain serious pollutants, hazardous substances and non-renewable resources, and non-biodegradable colours and scents (just read their labels next time you’re in the supermarket). But it doesn’t have to be this way. Delphis Eco works brilliantly, and they’re reasonably priced too.

Delphis Eco has received Royal Warrants from both HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales, in addition to being named the “Food Made Good” supplier of the year 2016 by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. With a business model that contributes to minimising pollution and its impact on the environment at every stage, Delphis Eco perfectly complements Cookery School’s commitment to sustainability.
