NAARDEN, Netherlands: Chrysal, Chrysal a global supplier of premium flower care products with proven results for growers, packers, supermarkets, florists and consumers, is helping florists to reduce their water use.

Water is essential for our planet, its ecosystem and people to survive and thrive. Flowers also need fresh water to last. Reducing our water usage, reduces the energy required to process and deliver it to homes, businesses, farms and communities, which helps to reduce pollution and conserve fuel resources. Water conservation requires forethought and effort, but every little bit helps. Chrysal products can help florists with reducing water? Read on and find out why small changes have a big impact.

Flowers need of course fresh water to last, but using water wisely can dramatically reduce florists’ water usage. Chrysal’s products make saving water a breeze for them. By adding Chrysal Professional 2 to buckets florists can re-use the water up to 5 days. This reduces their water usage by up to 80 per cent and will save costs and handling as well.

Dosing and conserving the amount of water and Professional used in each bucket can also help florists save water. And with a dosing unit in their shop, getting the correct and needed amount of water and Professional 2 is very easy whether they are filling a vase, a bucket, or even a bath in some cases.

Another way to conserve water is to limit the water while cleaning. Chrysal recommends to measure 1 Litre of water in a bucket and add 1 cap of Chrysal Cleaner. Use a sponge or brush to clean surfaces, tools and buckets. Rinse with a clean sponge and water only. Do not keep the tap running while cleaning or rinsing. Chrysal Cleaner is effective against dirt and limescale, but also environmentally friendly, biodegradable and will not harm flowers.

Also a good tip to conserve water is to check pipes and faucets for leaks regularly. Leaks waste water 24 hours, 7 days a week. Another good water saving option is installing flow restrictors.
