Have you ever considered the products used for cleaning your office? Or the cleaning methods themselves? By changing to a green office cleaning approach, you can help the environment and your employees.
To be clear, what is green cleaning? As defined by cleanlink.com, green cleaning is “using products and procedures that are safe for the environment and do not emit any pollutants when used.”
How can it help the environment and your employees?
- Reducing air and water pollution.
- Using fewer chemicals that contribute to ozone depletion.
- Decreasing the use of non-renewable or non-biodegradable products (most green products are produced and packaged in environmentally-friendly ways).
- Maintaining better overall air quality in your office.
- Reducing allergies in your workplace.
What are some of the ways to switch to green office cleaning? Two quick ways are to:
- Replace cleaning products with eco-friendly options.
- Replace cleaning equipment with higher-quality options and better filters.
If you don't want to undertake this shift yourself, there are companies to help make the shift. Search your local area for “green cleaning services”
