Recycle: It’s Crucial!

Crucial Vacuum is proud to offer our customers vacuum filters and bags that are recyclable!  Not only do our products make your home cleaner and help you stay healthier, but when you recycle our products you help our world stay clean and healthy.  But we don’t stop there, our products are packaged in recyclable material!  Our filters and bags can be recycled, and so can all of the materials in which we ship our high quality products to you!

The following is some facts from Headwater Cooperative Recycling—a non-profit organization and the largest recycling cooperative in the United States:

Product packaging accounts for 1/3 of our trash

Plastics require 100-400 years to break down in a landfill

Producing new plastic from recycled material uses only two-thirds of the energy required to manufacture it from raw materials

Recycling 1 ton of plastic can save 1-2 thousand gallons of gas

As much as 40% of selected plastic parts from damaged or discarded cars are repaired and reused

Every year we make enough plastic film to shrink-wrap the state of Texas

Over 1.5 billion pounds of post-consumer plastic bottles were recycled during 1999, accounting for 22% (by weight) of all plastic bottles produced in the U.S.

95% of all plastic bottles in the U.S. market are manufactured from PET (soda & water bottles) or HDPE (milk & laundry detergent)

- 56% of recycled PET finds a market in the manufacture of fiber (carpet & clothing)

- 29% of HDPE recycled bottles go into making new bottles

We at Crucial Vacuum hope you understand the importance of recycling – we certainly do, now it’s your turn to give back to the environment.

Crucial Info: Asthma & Allergies

Dustmites!

Do you or someone you know suffer from asthma or allergies? Well, we know that allergy season is right around the corner – That’s why we at Crucial Vacuum are working hard to get the word out to our customers to check your vacuum filter and bag every time you use your vacuum.

We don’t want you suffering from allergies and therefore we want to supply you with information on how you can reduce your allergies this year. Do you have a sealed vacuum with a clean filter? You should really go ahead and check this as it is crucial to your health.

We may not be able to stop your allergies, as it is tough to conquer, but believe us, we completely understand your pain. Our goal here is to help YOU become more educated on how you can help yourself reduce your symptoms with products that you own at home. Since you can’t control the pollen from the trees or any other outdoor allergen, we want you to control the cleanliness of your home.

You can do this by buying our filters, buying vacuums that actually capture the dirt/dust mite and becoming aware that your home is a great place to start the healing process that your body needs.

We wish you luck this allergy season and hope you can open yourself up to our new brand! We look forward to hearing from you soon! www.crucialvacuum.com

Dyson Filters Hot Off the Shelf

Here at Crucial Vacuum we focus on being true to our customers. What you see is what you get. We’re completely up front with our customers and that’s why we can’t exactly understand why Dyson advertises that they’re vacuums don’t have filters.

We feel that it’s safe to say that most vacuums have filters and we’re here to provide them for you. We don’t want to put Dyson down – we love Dyson! In fact, we just got our first shipment of Dyson DC-17 filters in and they’re manufactured by us, Crucial Vacuum. They’re washable AND reusable.

We want to extend a 10% off of $25 or more coupon code to you just for visiting our blog. The code is: CVBLOG10.

Please continue to check back often, as we will frequently lend out coupons to our readers. Stay tuned.

Introducing the Crucial Vacuum Blog

Welcome to the Crucial Vacuum blog where all your allergies will slowly begin to disappear. That’s our goal anyway – we want our products to help clean your home in a way that you may have never experienced before.

See, what we sell here at Crucial Vacuum are quality vacuum filters that actually trap the dust and keep them locked inside your vacuum. Of course it all depends on the type of vacuum you have, does your vacuum let the dust particles back out into the air? Or does it completely trap them in the bag? If you’re saying “hm… I don’t know what mine does” then you may want to rethink your vacuum purchase.

I’m not saying that you need to go ahead and throw away your vacuum, but what I am saying is that you need to make the most out of what you do have and at least buy filters that have been tested to trap the dirt. Plus, ours are washable! That’s right, you heard me, you can put Crucial Vacuum filters underneath the water to wash the dirt off instead of buying a new one every time you need to change it.

Smart right? The way we see it is that we want our customers to be happy. If you’re healthy then you’re most likely going to be happy.

If we can’t control the air pollution outside, at least we can control what we breathe inside our homes. Let’s work on living an allergy free life – together we can make it happen! Please buy responsibly.

Your feedback is always appreciated.
