Save by Choosing Green Cleaning Products

Green tissue“Going green” with your cleaning program has obvious environmental benefits, but making the switch to more sustainable cleaning products and practices can also benefit your bottom line. Here’s how:

Increasing Workplace Safety

Most conventional cleaning products are made with a combination of potentially harmful chemicals and toxins that can easily affect the wellbeing of your staff. For commercial cleaning workers, safety is a top concern, and for good reason. Nearly 90 percent of workplace injuries suffered by these employees involves eye irritation, skin irritation, burns or chemical inhalation. Making the switch to more environmentally sensitive cleaning supplies can prevent many of these injuries and reduce the frequency of sick days, the cost of your insurance and the amount you spend on workers’ compensation claims.

Concentrated Products Save Money

Green products are often sold with minimal packaging and in a more concentrated form than conventional cleaning supplies. This means you save on shipping costs and raw materials, the products last much longer than their more traditional alternatives and they use up less storage space and are easier to carry and handle.

Easier Disposal

Highly toxic conventional cleaning supplies must be disposed in special ways – you can’t just toss them in the trash bin. Employees must be trained in safe disposal procedures and wear special protective gear, and these expenses add up quickly.

Non-toxic green cleaning products are easier to dispose of, and switching to them can cut your spending on personal protection equipment, employee training and hazardous waste disposal.
