One of the UK’s leading and award-winning care groups has become the first of its kind globally to use n-kind plant based cleaning products for housekeeping in all of its care homes.

Aria Care Group, which recently celebrated its one year anniversary, is the first care group globally to be using n-kind plant-based products, as its single cleaning solution throughout its 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 at Aria Care, 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 practice 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.

“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.”

The move to implement n-kind products is part of Aria Care’s 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 Wright, who was recently named Group Hospitality Manager at Aria Care, 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, Paul and the team have created a new uniform cleaning schedule for housekeeping and laundry with an auditing system to support Aria’s care homes.

In the past year, Aria has achieved several benchmarks in staff retention and development, financial performance and hospitality, priding itself on being colleague-led, with feedback from its 2,700 colleagues providing the basis for its ever-evolving ethos, vision and values.
