Tablet screen wash to help fleets cut plastic usage
Fleets can now help with the war on plastic with the help of a new tablet vehicle screen wash from motor accessories distributor vGroup.
The tablet can be mixed with water to make up five litres of the liquid, eliminating the need for plastic storage bottles. According to the firm, some 100 million plastic bottles of screen wash are consumed annually by UK motorists – that’s two million plastic bottles per week or 285,000 per day.
Using the tablet can also cut down on the estimated eight million litres of fuel and two million tonnes of associated additional packaging for screen wash.
The blue raspberry smelling tablets, teal blue in colour, have been launched as part of vGroup International’s vehicle winter pack for fleets, which also contains an ice scraper and Chlorofluorocarbon-free (CFC) de-icer. However, the tablets are also available in single pod, three-pod or six-pod blister packs.
International chairman Martyn Nash said: “Not only do the tablets save considerable storage space, but advocating their use is good for the environment and good PR for businesses. It is a no-brainer.”
