Consumers are being driven by experience more than ever before as competitive gaps, including price and offerings, narrow in the retail industry. The Covid-19 pandemic further enhanced the importance of hygiene and cleanliness in achieving repeat business. The following research was conducted by Ipsos pre-pandemic (2017) and is clearly showing an overwhelming majority of retail customers (92%) indicating that cleanliness is an important factor in deciding whether to visit a store again.
Another study shows a second trend that is affecting consumers’ decision making is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). CSR refers to businesses that support social and environmental goals. Research conducted in 2017 among 1,000 Americans show that:
- “87% of consumers will have a more positive image of a company that supports social or environmental issues”
- “68% of millennials bought a product with a social or environmental benefit in the past 12 months”
- “88% will be more loyal to a company that supports social or environmental issues”
- “87% would buy a product with a social and environmental benefit if given the opportunity”

Eco-friendly retail cleaning
Chemicals can harm our planet’s water and air resources. ProVision22 follow our values of preserving our natural environment for us and our children. Our knowledge and experience in the biotechnology industry and our membership with ISSA (the world’s largest association of cleaning companies) help us source out environmentally safe cleaning machinery and supplies. ProVision22 has decided to focus on disinfectants that are:
- Green, environmentally safe chemicals, and cleaning supplies.
- Safe, low toxicity, chemicals that are less likely to cause health problems if ingested.
We recognize the advancements in biotechnology produce green, often biodegradable, low toxicity, reasonably priced chemicals that are safer and environmentally friendly.
By using green methods, equipment, and chemicals we can help protect your store’s visitors and staff and promote social returns through public recognition in your efforts to promote the environment. We try to do it all without any significant cost increases to you so to eliminate any decision you may need to make to go green.
