What is green cleaning?
Experts define it as effective cleaning that protects health without harming the environment.
The federal government defines green cleaning and environmentally preferred purchasing as:
“Products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products and services that serve the same purpose.”
Why is green cleaning important?
First and foremost, it is healthier. Some traditional products are known to contribute to numerous health problems, such as eye, skin and respiratory irritation, asthma and allergic reactions. This can lead to complaints from customers or loss of production from your staff.
By replacing traditional products with green-certified products, you can improve:
- Air Quality
- Overall Workplace Satisfaction
Did you know?
It takes about 6.2 billion pounds of raw materials to make the chemicals used each year to clean commercial buildings in the U.S. These mostly consist of petroleum, a valuable, but limited and nonrenewable natural resource.
- Using renewable and post-consumable products will help sustain our environment.
How do you know if a product is green-certified?
There are three standard logos that will be printed on a product if they are certified as green products.
