Green Washrooms from Bay West

What has Bay West done to be Green?

Disposables UK holds the licence to manufacture and sell the Bay West range in the UK and Europe. The EU Eco-label licence has been issued for the hand towels and toilet tissues that passed the Eco-label assessment

Disposables UK run clean, modern manufacturing plants that have demonstrated that they meet the highest environmental standards.

The Eco-label considers the following in awarding accreditation:

  • Air emissions of sulphur and greenhouse gases during production
  • Water pollution during production
  • Emissions of chlorine compounds and organic waste
  • Energy consumption during production
  • Risk of human health
  • Environmental damage or risks relating to the use of hazardous chemicals
  • Use of recycled fi bres of virgin fi bres from sustainably managed forests

This has meant that Disposables UK has had to work with its paper mills and their pulp suppliers as the whole production process - from raw pulp material through to the finished product - had to meet the Eco-label criteria at every stage.

Conditions for the accreditation of the Eco-label >>

Following extensive auditing and chemical analysis, Disposables UK received the Eco-label for a number of Bay West products under the licence number UK / 4 / 002 and became the first 'away from home' company to hold the 'flower' for tissue paper products.

In addition to the Eco-label accreditation, Disposables UK also hold:

  • BS EN ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System Certificate
  • BS EN ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Certificate
  • BS EN ISO 18001:2007 Health & Safety Management System Certificate
