We’re always up for celebrating those days that strive to make a difference to the world, which is why today we’re celebrating Earth Day! With the first Earth Day celebration taking place in 1970, it’s grown to be such a successful event, now with over 75,000+ partners working to drive positive action in over 192 countries.

Last month, we took part in Earth Hour, where we switched off our lights for an hour in the evening to show support for our planet. Both Earth Hour and Earth Day puts nature at the centre of international conversations, showing decision makers across the globe that nature matters and urgent action must be taken to reverse nature loss.

The mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide.

How will Quintex play a part in Earth Day?

As always, we’ll be raising awareness and starting those crucial discussions about how we can play a part in caring for our planet. However, we don’t just celebrate the planet on Earth Day – we celebrate every day where we help many kitchens incorporate energy saving solutions into their daily processes.

By helping kitchens to save energy, we’re helping to prevent those harmful waste products from entering the atmosphere, creating efficient kitchens that save money and help the planet in the process.

How can you take part in Earth Day?

Change starts with action. There are a number of ways you can do your part to contribute to the discussion and to raise awareness of Earth Day.

  • Start the conversation: Discuss the topic with friends and family.
  • Volunteer: Sign up for the latest resources, activities you can do at home or online, and ways to spread the word to your friends through the Earth Day website.
  • Do your research: The Earth Day website has plenty of resources for you to use and read up on, and you can even plan COVID-safe events.

Our energy saving solutions

We’ve been doing our part for the planet since the start of Quintex, with many kitchens across a range of industries taking advantage of our energy saving and efficient solutions. Cheetah, Biofix and Ecofix each have their own ways of being efficient:

  • Cheetah – Our demand controlled kitchen extraction system. Cheetah saves energy by controlling the extract and air supply fans in line with demand. Energy savings of up to 80% are typically achieved.
  • Biofix – Our biologically friendly drain treatment. This solution has a low carbon footprint, supports Green Building and is ISO 14000 certified due to no toxic/caustic chemicals being used.
  • Ecofix – Our safe, automatic and eco-friendly Grease Management System. The unique characteristics of our biological formula tackle the causes of unpleasant odours at source, ensuring that commercial kitchens can operate without negatively impacting the surrounding environment.
