Buy Your New Vacuum with a Green and Clean Conscience!

There is more to being environmentally aware than just looking at energy ratings. . . friends of the environment also want their new appliances to be responsibly manufactured. Everyone knows to look for efficiency when it comes to buying new appliances for the home, but what about the amount of energy consumed in their production and distribution? Sometimes this can far exceed the energy used during the entire lifespan of a product.

Made in Germany, using locally sourced materials and components, SEBO vacuum cleaners are built to last and are manufactured in an environmentally responsible way that reduces waste and uses fewer resources. Plastic is recycled into new components, and the SEBO factory is completely self-sustaining with respect to electricity. Its combined heat and power system produces the electricity required to run the factory's machinery. The warm air and water created by the system's generators are then used to heat the factory and warehouse.
For SEBO, reducing the carbon footprint of a product starts in the initial design process. An important consideration is to ensure that products pack into the smallest possible cartons, and that carton sizes allow the maximum number of machines to fit on a pallet. Most SEBO packaging is made from unbleached recycled cardboard, and waste paper from the offices is shredded and re-used for packing. Even deliveries are carefully planned, to ensure delivery trucks are running economically and are filled to capacity.

Water resources are also conserved at the SEBO factory. Rainwater is collected from the roof, then filtered and stored, to be used in production and within the factory washrooms, saving the unnecessary use of treated drinking water.

The factory and offices are designed to use natural light as much as possible, avoiding artificial lighting and the associated power consumption. And work hours are scheduled to make use of daylight hours; this also improves the working environment for employees.
