Our biodegradable cloths together with your GREEN waste.

Sani-touch – part of the Infection Protection Products stable of brands – is proud to launch a new sustainable cleaning product for use in commercial kitchens, hotel rooms, hospitals and even for industrial use. The new Buddy B rolls are 100% biodegradable cloths that can be discarded into kitchen waste. The Buddy B rolls are an extension of our cloth range which includes the unique Zonki cloth colour coded picture cloths

Ideal for wiping up oil, grease, water or even blood spills, this product has been designed with end of life in mind. Simply packaged in recyclable LDPE shrink wrapped bags, which hygienically protect and dispense every cloth feeding through from a coreless centre, light perforations ensure one cloth is puled out at a time controlling consumption.

Biodegradable Cloths and 100% Compostable

Wholly focused on creating a sustainable value chain, we’re not stopping with biodegradable cleaning cloths. In a first for South Africa, we want your green waste as part of our ‘Cloths to Compost Green Waste Initiative’ which will see green waste and used Buddy B biodegradable cloths turned into specialised growing mediums specifically designed for agricultural crops.

Sani-touch has been working with 9Five Integrated Nutrient Systems (Pty) Ltd, a specialist company which produces 100% organic nutrient dense growing mediums. 9Five has successfully piloted a project to include Sani-touch’s Buddy B biodegradable cloths with organic waste to produce a bespoke growing medium. Made from pure plant fibres and hydroentangled using water pressure, Buddy B cloths are perfectly designed to naturally decompose. 

In addition to a state-of-the-art and climate controlled worm farm facilities, 9Five manufactures its growing mediums from organic waste. Once matured the growing medium is mixed with worm vermicast. The end result is a perfectly balanced 100% organic growing medium with a high microbial count which ensures stronger and healthier plant growth and higher yields. 

Sani-touch is partnering with 9Five to help source green waste which will be composted together with used Buddy B cloths to create a 100% organic growing medium that negates the need for chemical fertilisers, is more water-efficient, rebalances the soil to optimal health and ensures food security for future generations. 

To start at the beginning is a leap of faith and we hope that we will find willing partners to join us on this journey. We just want to play a very tiny part and that is to encourage the collection of green waste so that they can continue to grow and develop the growing mediums needed to grow crops in SA without the need for chemicals for the sake of our environment, and our children and their children!
