Most "Green Cleaning" programs involve not only reducing your facility's environmental footprint but also protecting the health of the humans involved. Makes sense; essentially, what protects people tends to also protect the fish downstream. We've been protecting human health, and our environment, for well over 20 years. Here's how:
We're certified in Greenguard Environment Institute's cleaning program, originally developed for cleaning schools, hence incorporating an emphasis on indoor air quality, dust control and touch-point sanitation. Using Greenguard's specifications, we keep you healthy via Green Seal certified chemicals, reduced chemical usage, avoiding aerosols and air fresheners, and proper application and disposal methodology (we won't dump our mop water in your planter...or storm sewer...or parking lot).
We use concentrated chemicals to reduce packaging and shipping fuel usage, and emphasize fuel and energy efficiencies in our day-to-day operations.
We provide Green Seal certified restroom paper goods, made of 100% recycled material. We can assist you in recycling programs (we belong to the Arizona Recycling Coalition), and can advise you in LEED certification through our U S Green Building Council membership.
Take a glance in your janitor's closet. See an unfiltered vacuum? See a feather duster or dust-mop to just move the fine particle around (wouldn't it be nice to remove them instead?) Ready-to-use, or residential level, chemicals? Outdated, or unlabeled, chemicals? Scouring powder, or bleach (neither are particularly people or environmentally friendly)? (By the way - did they give you Material Safety Data Sheets for those chemicals?)
It takes a bit more than a few "Green" chemicals to make a "Green Cleaning" program.
