Period poverty is still one of the most prominent topics of today, with more and more companies approaching us for period poverty machines. Not only do we supply machines, we also supply branded sanitary products too; (we can also offer unbranded sanitary product packaging to clients when they buy in pallet quantities.) All the packaging provided is specifically designed for vending equipment and made from both biodegradable and recyclable cardboard. We are currently pushing ourselves even further into ‘green’ mode and researching the possibility of offering an organic range of products. For companies that are interested in taking this initiative up for their organization, Intelligent Vending could provide them with the knowledge, machines and insight to reflect their own business needs.

‘Recycling’ vending machines are on the rise in our supermarkets. Since the end of last year, more and more machines have appeared in our stores and they usually offer a cash-coupon incentive to use towards the cost of your bill. These machines are well within the scope of Intelligent Vending’s technology and we are surprised that, so far, no one had approached us to make one! Reducing, reusing and recycling is so important to our planet; it is brilliant to see people and corporations joining together to continually raise the level of awareness for this. Intelligent Vending want to show our pride and approval of the efforts being made, particularly through vending, to change our world…in more ways than one!

It was noted in a previous Intelligent Vending blog, Milk it, that a new visionary concept was on the loose. To reduce our plastic consumption there was a new milk vending machine which people could take their own bottles to and fill them up to their hearts content thus reducing their plastic consumption… well this revolutionary idea seems to have sparked more creative imagination and it has been reported in The Free Press that a family-run farm in North Yorkshire have converted a horsebox into a mobile vending machine! Selling fresh milk and cheese in rural communities. The venture, known as The Home Farmer, offers customers the chance to self-serve whole milk into glass bottles and savour the taste of milk produced from the family’s herd of cows. How udderly brilliant!

Personal Protection Equipment vending machines provide the means of addressing challenges faced by companies and their managers. There is a legal requirement for employers to provide protective and protective related equipment to staff who may be exposed to personal risk and danger in the workplace; this is an area of activity that is overseen on behalf of Government by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Not only does failure to provide adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) present a potential physical risk to employees (sometimes life threatening), it could lead to serious legal and financial consequences if a prosecution relating to alleged negligence arises.
Depending on the type of work and number of employees involved, the issuing and monitoring of protective equipment can become a complicated area to control, sometimes also allowing costs to escalate unnecessarily. Many employers have seen the benefits of making equipment available through on-site vending machines. Such machines are particularly suitable for providing protective gloves, goggles and ear defenders etc. Machines provide good availability of equipment, they offer storage under good conditions, and they provide the means for employers to monitor usage and access to the equipment.
At Intelligent Vending, we can provide a complete vending solution for managing and distributing stock of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to workers, using vending machines.

The first of May was often regarded in history as the first day of the summer. The Romans celebrated The Festival of Flora, goddess of fruit and flowers, which used to mark the time when warmer weather began and flowers and trees started to blossom, and all around was the beginning of those glorious summer smells. At Intelligent Vending we love a good fragrance (particularly a summer one!) and this starter kit by Microair is no exception. It comes with the air freshener and 1 case of 12 fragranced aerosol cans to allow you to keep your washroom area smelling fresh. The advanced technology incorporated in this air freshener automatically offers a continuous concentrated fragrance between your chosen working hours. Available in ABS white, black and chrome finish with a choice of 12 fragrances with varying intensities.

It was announced last week that Wales has decided to give free sanitary products to school girls in a bid to fight the issue of Period Poverty. The move follows Scotland who declared last year that sanitary products should be available free for schools. The scheme in Wales will help girls in both primary and secondary schools and the hope is it will bring Period Poverty to an end in these educational institutions. On one of our blog articles, Intelligent Vending highlighted, a few months ago, a Period Poverty Starter Kit that may help anyone wanting to trial the scheme or invest in it whole-heartedly. There are some additional washroom accessories that companies and schools may like to invest in too; we have some excellent Sanitary Bags and Sanitary Dispensers by Lunar as well as some excellent Sanitary Bins to help companies and institutions aid girls through their cycles hygienically and with the dignity they deserve. England has yet to follow suit in funding free products but has announced that, in hospitals, women and girls will be given free sanitary products on request and a pledge has been made to fund free menstrual products in schools from September. Watch this space. Perhaps we can all break down these barriers to learning. Period.
