Green Cleaning Supplies: Separating Myths from Facts

live green iconThe buzz about “green cleaning” has been growing, but many people still believe common misconceptions about eco-friendly cleaning supplies. In this post, we are going to separate fact from fiction regarding green cleaning supplies in Boston and elsewhere.

Myth: Green cleaning supplies and products don’t work.

Fact: We hear this one a lot, but it’s simply not true! In fact, many of our “green” cleaning products out-perform their conventional counterparts. We have built a reputation on providing the very best cleaning supplies in Boston, and we wouldn’t have green products on our shelves if they didn’t perform to our standards.

Myth: Green cleaning supplies are expensive.

Fact: The truth is that green cleaning supplies are cost-competitive with conventional formulas, and many are considered “cost neutral” because they last longer and clean better, leading to less money spent in the long run.

Myth: Green cleaning is just a fad.

Fact: Many folks in our industry thought that up until about a decade ago, until more and more facilities saw the benefits of making the switch. Increased worker productivity, decreased spending, reduced absenteeism — these are just some of the many benefits facilities experience after switching to greener cleaning programs, and they aren’t a fad that will fade!

Myth: Green cleaning is mostly about using recycled paper products.

Fact: Using recycled paper products is certainly one aspect of green cleaning, but it doesn’t end there. Our inventory includes green handwashes, floor seals, cleaning cloths, hand sanitizers, dishwashing liquids and much, much more!
