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. Every-
one 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.
