Spartan Chemical Joins Responsible Flushing Alliance
Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, today announced they’re now a contributing member of the Responsible Flushing Alliance and its growing group of manufacturers and innovators investing in a coordinated national effort to educate consumers on what not to flush.
In accordance with California’s Assembly Bill 818, which calls for proper labeling of disposable wipes with the “Do Not Flush” symbol and supported by a consumer education campaign, the RFA is launching its #FlushSmart program in California with the support of its now 26 contributing and advisory members. The campaign includes a series of educational materials and resources for consumers, educators, wastewater agencies, and other stakeholder groups to educate consumers on what should not be flushed down the toilet.
“Spartan is committed to the health and wellbeing of our customers, community and environment. Our collaboration with the Responsible Flushing Alliance strengthens this commitment with a specific focus on consumer education for proper product use throughout the product lifecycle,” said Rebecca Kaufold, Manager of Government Affairs and Sustainability at Spartan Chemical Company, Inc. “We are proud to be a member of RFA and look forward to the opportunity it provides us to further its mission.”
