CWS-boco donates park benches made from recycled washroom hygiene dispensers to charitable institutions

15/10/2012 | Dreieich
For many years now, CWS-boco has been committed to making its production and service processes even more environmentally friendly at every opportunity. The logistics organization uses electrically and natural gas powered vehicles, and the company’s high-tech in-house laundries work on a water and energy-saving basis, while discarded cotton towel rolls are recycled and used in the manufacture of mops. Now, CWS-boco has started a campaign within the framework of which the plastic housing of its towel, soap and fragrance dispensers are recycled and “reborn” as park benches. In keeping with CWS-boco’s corporate philosophy of “Serving you – Serving nature”, these benches are to be donated to non-profit and charitable institutions such as clubs, kindergartens, schools and retirement homes. As from the start of today’s Global Handwashing Day, such institutions can apply for a bench via CWS-boco’s Facebook page at The campaign ends on November 30th, 2012.

Two electrically powered vehicles will be in operation on service trips during the coming five years at the CWS-boco facilities in Bochum and Solingen. The practical testing is taking place within the framework of the Dortmund research project "ELMO – Elektromobile Urbane Wirtschaftsverkehre" (electromobile urban commercial transport), which itself is part of the federal "Model Regions Electromobility" programme and sponsored with funding from the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs (BMVBS). The programme is coordinated by the National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW GmbH), with the objective of testing the long-term suitability of electric drive systems in commercial goods transport and thus to promote the topic of electromobility. The official kick-off event for the federal programme took place yesterday in Dortmund, attended by Dirk Inger, head of the "Climate and Environmental Policy" department at the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs.
