(Frequently Asked Questions)
long has Envirogreen Canada™ been in business?
Since 2005, although in 2009 the company assumed
new ownership providing a fresh approach to
distributing environmentally sensitive solutions
to the textile care industry in British Columbia.
At Envirogreen we have recently upgraded our space and
distribution model, expanded the product lines
and sales team and introduced new updated branding
to emphasize a renewed commitment to spectacular
results. There are a lot of great ideas in the
pipeline too. We understand that innovation makes
our clients more competitive and we will never take our
client’s business for granted.

is an example of a “small step?”
It could be as simple as switching to degradable
poly bags for your customers. Yes, they cost pennies
more, but a small step makes a statement to customers
that your business understands that conventional
plastics do not break down and this waste can
take years, even decades, to degrade.
The poly bags that Envirogreen Canada™ ships are clearly stamped,
so your customers recognize the commitment to
making the right choice. Envirogreen Canada™ can help you with
discovering other easy changes within your business.
Consider reviewing your current chemical lines to understand if they are biodegradable
and safe to the environment and to your employees and customers. Envirogreen Canada
only represents premium brands with the highest performance metrics.
And yes, our brands are safe to use and biodegradable.

and specialty products which are bio-degradable and backed by decades of research and development from
top laboratories around the globe. The equipment represented by Envirogreen Canada is world renowned
and respected for advances in ergonomic and energy efficient designs. Envirogreen Canada stands for

provide some exciting insights. You may find that
in your market, the introduction of garment bags
serves your customer even better that degradable
poly. It can be a true point of difference for
your plant, increase customer retention and provide
a great marketing element. Do you currently recycle
hangers, use vegetable based inks with your printing,
inform and train your staff about environmental
management or market your good environmental performance
with your customers?
Change doesn’t have
to be painful – it can be exciting, innovative
(there is that word again) and should always be
profitable and considered the right thing to do
