SC Johnson Professional recently launched a new washroom soap dispenser made from recovered coastal plastic. The SCJ Professional Proline WAVE 1L washroom soap dispenser is made from 70 percent recovered coastal plastic, which is post-consumer recycled waste plastic collected on land within 50 km of an ocean so that it doesn’t reach oceans or landfills.

Each SCJ Professional Proline WAVE dispenser is the equivalent of 16 x 500ml waste plastic bottles that have been prevented from reaching the oceans or landfills in vulnerable coastal areas where there is little formal waste collection infrastructure.

Eight million metric tonnes of plastic reach the world’s oceans every year, equating to a rubbish truck full of plastic being dumped into the ocean every minute and this is an issue around the world.

SC Johnson Professional CEO, Katja von Raven, said: “In the US and Europe, SC Johnson has already seen successful launches of bottles made from 100 percent recovered coastal plastic in Mr Muscle and Windex product ranges, thanks to the company’s global partnership with Plastic Bank. We are now excited to be bringing this truly innovative approach to professional markets with our Proline WAVE soap dispenser.

“In our extensive market research with facility management professionals, we found that 91 percent of respondents believed that their choice of a skin care dispenser can contribute to meeting their business’s sustainability targets. So, by leading the way with our new dispenser made from recovered coastal plastic, we’re allowing our customers to act immediately on a topic they care about.”
