SC Johnson Professional’s Proline WAVE™ Dispenser Nominated for ISSA Show Innovation Award

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – November 6, 2023 – SC Johnson Professional®, a total solutions provider for industrial, institutional and healthcare users, today announced that its Proline WAVE™ 1-Liter Manual Dispenser has been nominated for an ISSA Show Innovation Award. The dispenser is made with 70% Recovered Coastal Plastic, which is plastic that is collected on land within 31 miles of an ocean, in countries with high volumes of uncollected plastic waste, so that it does not reach the ocean or landfills. The Proline WAVE™ dispenser will be featured at the SC Johnson Professional booth, #2222 at the ISSA Show North America in Las Vegas, November 13-16.

“We’re committed to developing products that help businesses achieve their hygiene and sustainability goals,” said Bryant Davis, Vice President and General Manager of North America at SC Johnson Professional. “Recovered Coastal Plastic is an issue in many parts of the world, and through SC Johnson’s partnership with Plastic Bank, we’re proud to recycle this plastic into hand hygiene dispensers.”

The Proline WAVE™ Dispenser is made from sixteen 16.9 fl. oz. Recovered Coastal Plastic bottles[1]. It is a manual dispenser and therefore doesn’t require batteries that could ultimately end up in a landfill. The Proline WAVE™ Dispenser is compatible with SC Johnson Professional’s full line of RefreshTM FOAM soaps. These soaps use 30% less product and can reduce average water consumption as much as 45%[2] when washing and rinsing hands compared to traditional lotion soap.

“Our team would also like to congratulate ISSA for celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. It’s an incredible achievement and we look forward to discussing the future of the industry with ISSA Show attendees,” added Davis.
