The benefits of having a green cleaning program

12 Jul 2024 2:21 PM | Lori Weber
"Going green" has become more popular as more people are becoming more informed on the negative health and environmental impacts that some of the things that we use in our daily lives can have. Things like single-use plastic, toxic cleaning chemicals, the wasting of water in our bathroom showers and toilets, all affect the people and environment around us. Now it's more important than ever to implement a green cleaning program into our cleaning services.

Doing things like using natural active ingredient cleaners can keep the people in the facilities that we're cleaning, ourselves, and the environment safer.  There's less human health risk and liability when using natural products versus toxic chemicals. Small things that don't even require extra effort like using glass bottles and multi-use washable cleaning cloths and mops are beneficial to the environment by lowering the amount of waste that we produce that will go to a landfill and could possibly take hundreds of years to break down.

Offering green cleaning to customers will not only benefit human health and the environment, but also our businesses. Customers will appreciate that we care enough about the environment and their health to use safer eco-friendly products, in turn making them more likely to refer others with similar priorities to us.
