Aria Care first to globally adopt environmentally friendly housekeeping

Aria Care has become the first of its kind globally to use n-kind plant based cleaning products for housekeeping in all of its care homes.

We are the first care group globally to be using n-kind plant-based products, as its single cleaning solution throughout our 50 care homes in England.

n-kind, an exclusive brand from Blueleaf, provides a range of plant based, sustainable cleaning products and works with organisations to make a greener and more sustainable choice, without compromising on cleanliness and performance.

James Clear, Hospitality Director, has been working closely with Blueleaf for six months to ensure the product has been trialled and tested while also collaborating with Blueleaf on best practices and ways of working for Aria’s new internal cleaning guides.

James said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Blueleaf with their n-kind plant based product range to develop a system and new ways of working with the products in our homes.

“We are very proud to be the first company globally to implement the n-kind system into all of our homes in England. The products are fantastic and we have received so many compliments on the cleaning power and the fragrance within our homes.”

Lloyd King, Corporate Account Manager, at Blueleaf said: “It’s been excellent working with James Clear and the team at Aria Care to implement our ‘n-kind’ solution into all the homes.

“The n-kind products are kinder to the environment, and the hands that use them. At Blueleaf, we are passionate about adding value for our customers, and it’s great that our innovations are helping us become the sustainable supplier of choice.

We’re excited to see this trend of adopting  our n-kind cleaning solutions continue in the care home sector.”

Paul Wright, who was recently named Group Hospitality Manager at Aria Care, said: “It’s been really exciting to launch n-kind cleaning solutions throughout the organisation.

“It’s all about engaging and empowering our housekeeping and laundry teams and taking them on the journey with us and driving excellence in laundry and housekeeping.”

The move to implement n-kind products is part of our commitment to provide hospitality from the heart, giving residents and team members across all its homes a good environment in which to live and work.

Paul said: “At Aria, it is our priority to provide our residents with a clean, safe and friendly environment to live in but also ensure that they are treated with respect, dignity and kindness.”

James and his team have created a new uniform cleaning schedule for housekeeping and laundry with an auditing system to support Aria’s care homes.
