Wipe range goes green

​The first packs of new mikrozid® universal wipes green line are now available to order. Offering a unique ecological alternative to conventional plastic-based wipes, the sustainable wipes from schülke set a new gold standard for clinical wipes.

100% plastic free with no micro-plastics, the new green wipes are produced using only green energy and are climate neutral due to carbon offsetting. No toxic substances are released if the wipes are incinerated. 

The mikrozid universal wipes green line is manufactured using a three-layer, non-woven process produced with 100% FSC-certified materials, using 25% less CO2 emissions than many other wipes. The packaging contains 22% PIR (post-industrial recyclate) and the new optimised format requires 14% less packaging material per soft pack and achieves a 27% higher pallet utilisation. 

In addition to these green credentials, mikrozid universal wipes green line provides outstanding cleaning performance combined with maximum material compatibility and excellent skin tolerance.

With a low alcohol formulation containing a blend of two alcohols, the wipes contain added surfactants to boost cleaning performance, are rapid acting and certified to the highest standards. Providing cleaning and disinfection in a single product, the wipes are effective against bacteria, yeast and viruses, including enveloped viruses such as coronaviruses. They are ideal for clinical use, particularly when a material friendly disinfectant is needed, including the surfaces of keyboards and touch pads / display screens of sensitive equipment. 

The wipes offer the following benefits

  • 100% plastic free with no micro-plastics
  • Manufactured from renewable resources (FSC certified) using 100% green energy
  • Low alcohol formulation with rapid efficacy and excellent material compatibility 
  • Ecological alternative to conventional clinical wipes
  • Less packaging and less waste
  • Climate Neutral due to carbon offsetting

Robbie Blackwood, managing director, schülke UK, commented: “The introduction of new mikrozid universal wipes green line is part of schülke’s ongoing commitment to integrate climate action into our corporate strategy. We’re already investing in two different climate protection projects as part of our mission to ‘protect lives worldwide’.”

Schülke is committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and is one of many global companies tackling the climate crisis through science-based targets.
