Incorporating green practices in cleaning means making use of cleaning supplies and materials that are environmentally-friendly. It also means making use of cleaning methods that produce as small a carbon footprint as possible. There are a number of ways by which you and other Tucson firms can “go green” with your cleaning programs.
Familiarize yourself with green products
The easiest and most basic way of starting your green cleaning process is to know what chemicals and cleaning solutions are environmentally safe. It can be quite tempting to just get the first cleaning solution that has a “100% biodegradable” tag, but the best way to go would be to check out the ingredients, or the Materials Safety Data Sheet, of the cleaning solutions that you use and compare them with what the National Institute of Health’s database has to say. If your janitorial supplies come with toxic ingredients, look for better alternatives.
