Our hand sanitizer is made from reclaimed beverages. This means we take unsaleable beverage products – products that might be the wrong recipe or have reached the end of their shelf-life – and we’re giving it a chance at a new life. We are the only company in Canada that is doing this!
We bring the beverages to our facility, evaluate them, de-package them and then feed the liquids through our distillation process where it becomes pure ethanol. We then use our ethanol to make the ReclaimClean™ hand sanitizer. All of the beverage packaging is then recycled.
We are proud to save the liquids and its packaging from being landfilled and giving it a new purpose – a planet-friendly, circular economy, and safe hand sanitizer that is formulated to the World Health Organization standard with Health Canada approval.
When we started making our hand sanitizer, we did it for our employees and their families. We wanted to make sure they were safe and had reliable access to a high quality and safe product during COVID-19. When we saw the same need of so many others, we retooled our plant and secured Health Canada approval so that we could safely share our product.
We now donate up to 10% of our production to essential service workers, community organizations and first responders. So far, we have donated hand sanitizer to the following causes/organizations:
- Ronald McDonald House
- Fire Department
- Cancer Assistance Programs
This has been a humbling and empowering time for all of us. We never would have thought we’d make hand sanitizer, but like everyone else, we had to think outside of the box and act outside of our comfort zone to reinvent our business and do good for the community. The result is an environmentally-friendly product that positively supports both the planet and our communities. We are really proud to be able to do this.
