Eco Proportioning Systems

Eco Proportioning Systems

Most facilities require a variety of cleaning and disinfecting products to stay clean. This can require purchasing products from different manufacturers, learning new dilution ratios, and finding storage space for bulky ready-to-use products.

Simplify Your Ordering Process 

Eco® proportioning systems dilute all Eco products. This includes disinfectants, cleaners, sanitizers, and carpet care products. When you choose Eco, you have access to any product you need to clean or disinfect your facility. No need to worry about communicating with different suppliers.

Eliminate Dilution Guesswork

Many concentrated products need to be diluted by hand. At best, this process slows down custodial staff members. At worst, it causes improper dilution of important chemicals like disinfectants. Eco proportioning systems take the guesswork out of dilution, automatically diluting products at the proper ratio with a push of a button. Because Eco has a cohesive user interface with a color-coded labeling system, operating the proportioning system is seamless.

Improve Storage Space

Eco offers three proportioning systems, the Eco Pro™, Eco Element™, and Eco Edge™. All are designed to fit in virtually any custodial closet. Eco products are super concentrated, making them compact for storage purposes.

Other Eco Benefits 

Eco products are innovative, high-quality, and cost-effective.

Several Eco products are Green Seal™ certified.

Eco 1.25 L bags are manufactured with 83% less plastic than similarly sized rigid containers.

Eco packaging is made from recycled and post-consumer material.

Eco super concentrated products reduce labor time and offer superior end-use cost.

Eco Proportioning Systems

Eco Proportioning Systems

Proper cleaning and disinfecting begin with proper product dilution. Diluting products by hand can be messy, unsafe, and inaccurate. Eco® proportioning systems seamlessly and accurately dilute products without exposing workers to concentrated products.

Accurate Product Dilution

When products are diluted by hand, user error can result in incorrect product dilution. This can be detrimental to the effectiveness of cleaners and disinfectants. Eco proportioning systems prevent dilution mistakes by automatically diluting concentrated products with the push of a button.

Eco proportioning systems are easy to operate and color and number coded making products easy to identify while filling spray bottles and mop buckets.

Protection from Harsh Chemicals

Like many cleaners and disinfectants, Eco products are super concentrated to reduce labor time and offer superior end use cost. Diluting products by hand exposes workers to super concentrated products. Eco proportioning systems are self-contained, meaning staff members have no contact with concentrated products or exposed tubing.


Eco proportioning systems can fit in virtually any custodial closet. Depending on the needs of your facility, choose between the Eco Pro®, Eco Element®, and Eco Edge®. The Eco Pro is designed for broad spectrum cleaning and can dilute for up to six different applications. The Eco Element and Eco Edge are designed for remote and focused applications, diluting for up to 3 different applications.


Because Eco proportioning systems utilize concentrated products, less packaging is required to ship Eco products. Eco’s packaging consists of recycled and post-consumer material and Eco 1.25 L bags are manufactured with 83% less plastic than rigid containers.

The Eco Proportioning Program 

Eco proportioning systems are part of the larger Eco Proportioning Program. This program includes training and educational materials highlighting proper procedures that promote human health and safety.

Keep your facility clean with the Eco proportioning program. Contact your Buckeye representative to see which proportioning systems and products are right for your facility.

Sustainability and the Eco Proportioning Program

Sustainability and the Eco Proportioning Program

Buckeye’s goal is to provide the most innovative, high performance and cost-effective products, packaging, and programs that promote human health and safety. Because of a continued commitment to developing products that are safer for workers and the environment, Buckeye established itself as “green” long before it became a marketing strategy.

For the Eco® Proportioning Program, promoting sustainability begins with effective, safer, economically and ecologically friendly chemistry. Several Eco products are Green Seal certified, meaning they meet Green Seal’s strict requirements for protective limits on VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and human & environmental toxicity.

Because Eco products are packaged in hermetically sealed, flexible packaging, staff members are prevented from coming into contact with concentrated product. The self-contained Eco proportioning systems place worker and environmental safety first.

Eco packaging also reduces waste. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, source reduction is the preferred way to be green, where plastic is concerned. Eco’s outer box packaging is recyclable, double wall corrugated, and made from 41% plastic. The inner packaging is made from 100% recycled paperboard and 35% post-consumer material. Eco 1.25 L bags are manufactured with 83% less plastic than rigid containers and their flexibility eliminates product waste, delivering a 99% evacuation rate.

According to the Recycled Paperboard Technical Association recycling one ton of paper would:

Save enough energy to power the average American home for six months

Save 7,000 gallons of water

Save 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one metric ton of carbon equivalent (MTCE)

Over the past year, based on the above recycling information, Buckeye:

Saved enough energy to power an average American home for 19 years

Saved 125.4 cubic yards of landfill space

Saved 266,000 gallons of water

Reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 38 tons of carbon equivalent

Eco’s commitment to sustainability is only matched by its commitment to product performance. Higher concentrated Eco products outperform other green products as well as non-green, conventional chemistries.

Contact your Buckeye representative to see how Eco can transform product proportioning and sustainability in your facility.

Cleaning and Disinfecting During COVID-19

Cleaning and Disinfecting During COVID-19

As facilities reopen during COVID-19, properly cleaning and disinfecting are important steps in the process. Buckeye is committed to enhancing the performance and safety of its products along with providing proper training and education. Using Buckeye dilution systems, wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), following Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, reading Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and product labels, learning how to use products safely, and following state, local and facility guidelines for wearing a face mask are all part of working smart.

Thoroughly clean objects and surfaces before disinfecting. The Eco® Proportioning Program provides products like Eco All-Purpose Cleaner, Eco Glass Cleaner HD, Eco Muscle Cleaner and more to clean all surfaces in your facility. Eco proportioning systems are closed, preventing exposure to concentrated products. They automatically dilute products, taking the guess work out of product dilution. Each Eco product is easily identified by color and number, eliminating product confusion. Clean restrooms, hallways, offices communal areas, and more with properly diluted products that make cleaning easier and quicker.

High-touch surfaces and objects must be disinfected daily. These include countertops, door handles, sink handles, faucets, hand railings, restroom stalls, light switches, phones, toilets, and computer equipment. Some high-touch areas may need to be cleaned more often depending on how often they are used. Stores should disinfect shopping carts and sale keypads before each use.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has compiled a list of disinfectants for use against COVID-19. This list contains several Buckeye products, including two Eco products, Eco Neutral Disinfectant E23 and Eco One-Step Disinfectant-Deodorizer-Cleaner E22. When disinfecting with Eco Neutral Disinfectant or Eco One-Step Disinfectant-Deodorizer-Cleaner, remember to let each disinfectant dwell for ten minutes to achieve complete disinfection.

Attain the best overall value for each dollar spent with the fully integrated Eco Proportioning Program, designed and manufactured with proprietary technology with you, the end-user, in mind. Effective, safer, economically and ecologically friendly chemistry; hermetically sealed, flexible and sustainable packaging; together with a simplistic approach to proportioning to protect and preserve your environment.

Microban® Antimicrobial Product Floor Protection 


A recent study conducted in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and a COVID-19 General Ward (GW) at Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, China confirmed that the virus was widely distributed on floors, computer mice, trash cans, and sickbed handrails. Another study found that bacteria and fungi can live on soles of shoes for up to five days.

Clarion® 25 Microban Antimicrobial Floor Finish and Arena® 300 Microban Antimicrobial Wood Floor Coating can provide an added level of 24/7 proactive protection against damaging microbes. Though Microban is not a substitute for normal cleaning practices, Microban protection continuously fights the growth of microbes, and makes floors easier to clean - keeping floors cleaner, longer at no additional cost to you.

Training Programs 


Buckeye’s training programs provide step-by-step manuals and customized wall charts to accompany in-depth, in-person training. Provide your staff with the proper products and procedures to meet the needs of your facility.

Social Distancing Decals


In order to reopen, facilities need to maintain safe daily habits in order to reduce the risk of exposure. This includes reminding patrons to wear face coverings, practice social distancing, and avoid public places when sick. Buckeye can help bring awareness to the people in your facility with social distancing signage at entrances, on floors, on walls, on carts, and at registers.

Standardize Your Cleaning Program with Eco

Standardize Your Cleaning Program with Eco

The Eco® Proportioning Program can help standardize cleaning in any facility. With cleaners, disinfectants, sanitizers, and odor eliminators all dispensable from one system, Eco makes cleaning easy for staff of any facility.

There are three compact Eco proportioning systems, made to fit in virtually any custodial closet. Designed for broad spectrum cleaning, the Eco Pro can dilute for up to six different applications. The more compact Eco Element and Edge are designed for remote, satellite, and focused applications, each diluting for up to three applications. Each proportioning system operates the same, automatically diluting products with the press of a button, taking the guess work out of product dilution.

Eco’s extensive product line provides products to clean any part of your facility. They are each color and number coded to make proportioning even easier. Each product’s number and color match with its corresponding bottle and proportioning system dispenser. Recently a church in Phoenix, AZ switched from ready-to-use products to the Eco Proportioning Program. They had also been using several different product dispensers throughout their facilities, making diluting cleaners a confusing, time consuming process. The Eco proportioning systems automatically diluted products and each Eco product, bottle, and dispenser is labeled with a corresponding color and number making it easy to distinguish between products. Switching to Eco helped consolidate their cleaning supplies and develop a better cleaning system.

For schools looking to implement the Eco Proportioning Program, Buckeye’s Honors Custodial Training Program can help guide staff as they clean. Available 24 hours a day, the Honors Program provides training in routine cleaning, restroom, shower and locker room cleaning, carpet care, hard floor care, gym floor care, food service procedures, summer cleaning procedures, and product safety. The program presents easy to follow procedures that are researched and proven to increase efficiency with videos, tests, training manuals, product literature, and wall charts.

For more information about the Eco Proportioning Program and how it can simplify cleaning in your facility, contact your local Buckeye representative.

Maximize Efficiency with the Eco Proportioning Program

Maximize Efficiency with the Eco Proportioning Program

From general cleaning to restroom cleaning and food service area cleaning, the wide range of necessary products can begin to add up. Keeping track of the dilution rate and application of each product can get overwhelming. It can start to waste the time of staff members and, in some cases, prevent them from cleaning and disinfecting properly. The Eco® Proportioning Program is designed to maximize efficiency with easy-to-operate proportioning systems, cohesive labeling, and outstanding product performance.

All Eco products are proportioned through Eco proportioning systems. Eco proportioning systems are automatic, compact, and self-contained with a cohesive user interface and experience. All three proportioning systems (Eco Pro®, Eco Element®, and Eco Edge®) have the same user interface with seamless push and lock buttons. All Eco products are diluted and dispensed with the push of a button, consolidating the dilution process for all facility cleaners and disinfectants.

Eco products use a unique and intuitive labeling system to help staff members easily identify products. Each Eco product has a corresponding color and number that can be found on the product packaging, spray bottle, and proportioning system. In combination with Eco’s proportioning systems, Eco’s labeling system simplifies the proportioning process for all staff members, helping them focus on the more important task of cleaning.

Eco products cover all your facility’s cleaning needs including food service and preparation areas, restrooms, carpet cleaning, and other general cleaning. When asked about his elementary school’s switch to Eco, one head custodian said, “Staff has really liked the change to Eco. The chemicals work a lot better than what we used in the past.” Because Eco products work better than other cleaners and disinfectants, staff members no longer have to waste time recleaning areas because residue has been left behind. Eco products work on the first application.

When Buckeye representatives install Eco proportioning systems, they train staff members on the proportioning systems and products. Eco also has customizable wall charts that staff members can refer to as they dispense products and clean. Staff members at one university commented on the helpfulness of Buckeye training and wall charts, saying, “Buckeye has been extremely helpful in making sure that our staff is properly trained. I like the wall charts above the systems. If I ever forget what a chemical does or how to install a bag, it’s posted right there.”

With Eco and the training provided by Buckeye representatives, staff members can be confident in a clean facility. To find out more about the Eco Proportioning Program, contact your local Buckeye representative.
