As the calendar turns over to a new year, it’s the perfect opportunity for facility managers to set goals that not only enhance operations but also contribute positively to the environment. At Banner Systems, we believe that incorporating sustainability into your facility’s practices is not only responsible but also cost-effective in the long run. Let’s explore some sustainable New Year’s resolutions that can help your facility thrive while reducing its carbon footprint.
Prioritize Eco-Friendly Cleaning Solutions
Start the year off by reevaluating your cleaning products. Spartan Tri-Base Multi-Purpose Cleaner is an excellent choice. Not only does it effectively clean a wide range of surfaces, but it’s also a BioRenewables product, boasting a bio-based certification. With its non-VOC, less toxic, and biodegradable formulation, you can maintain a clean environment while making environmentally conscious choices.
Opt for Responsible Floor Care
Maintaining your facility’s floors doesn’t have to come at the expense of the environment. Spartan Green Solutions Floor Finish Remover is specifically designed to strip floor seal and finish while being low in odor and VOC. Ideal for various settings, including healthcare facilities and public buildings, this remover demonstrates that responsible floor care is both effective and environmentally friendly.
Embrace Green Cleaning Solutions
Another impactful resolution is to transition to eco-friendly, effective cleaning solutions. Spartan Clean by Peroxy is a Green Seal Certified all-purpose cleaner that harnesses the power of peroxide for a thorough clean. From windows to restrooms, this versatile cleaner leaves surfaces spotless without streaking. Its reduced need for multiple products simplifies training and inventory management, making your facility’s cleaning routines more efficient.
Reduce Single-Use Plastics
Commit to reducing single-use plastics in your facility. Replace traditional plastic bottles with bulk dispensers whenever possible. These dispensers not only reduce plastic waste but also minimize the frequency of restocking, saving time and resources.
Enhance Recycling Initiatives
Step up your recycling efforts by strategically placing recycling bins throughout your facility. Educate staff and visitors on proper recycling practices to ensure that recyclable materials are diverted from landfills.
Invest in Energy-Efficient Equipment
Consider upgrading to energy-efficient equipment that not only reduces energy consumption but also operational costs. Energy-efficient vacuum cleaners, hand dryers, and lighting systems can make a significant difference in your facility’s sustainability efforts.
Set Regular Sustainability Audits
Make it a practice to conduct regular sustainability audits. Evaluate your facility’s resource consumption, waste generation, and eco-friendly practices. Use these audits to track progress, identify areas for improvement, and celebrate successes.
Embracing these sustainable New Year’s resolutions can lead to a greener, more efficient facility that benefits both your bottom line and the environment. At Banner Systems, we’re committed to providing you with the products and expertise you need to achieve these goals. Let’s make 2024 a year of sustainable success for your facility!
