2: Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products Reduce Waste
Due to the toxic chemicals within, many conventional cleaning products are often packaged in single-use plastics and can’t be recycled. Shockingly, only 5% of the plastic produced worldwide is actually recycled, with most going to landfill. When these plastics get thrown away, the residue chemicals inside get released into the atmosphere and ground, polluting the air and nearby waterways.
As eco-cleaning products are made with biodegradable and non-toxic chemicals, they can be responsibly disposed of or recycled for use again. Some environmentally friendly cleaning products may be packaged in reusable packaging, or with refillable products. Our Triple 8 Dose range is a perfect example of this. Made from biodegradable, high-concentrate chemicals, one 1L bottle can fill up to 100 spray bottles, which can be recycled after use. This provides a deep clean, for less money and damage to the environment.
3: Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products are better for the health and comfort of users
Without toxic chemicals involved, cleaning is no longer a dangerous task. People in regular contact with chemicals can experience ‘build up’ which means they can experience skin problems and other health issues after years of exposure.
Using the right dilution rates, sustainable cleaning products are just as effective as chemical cleaners but won’t produce harmful fumes or be corrosive on the skin. This means there’s no need for commercial cleaning companies to spend money on protective uniforms and can ensure their employees remain healthy and don’t develop any respiratory or skin conditions.
When cleaning commercial areas, the users of the space are also important to consider, not just the cleaners themselves. The residue left over from surface sprays or air fresheners can cause health problems for those that regularly use the space. Using eco-friendly products can ensure cleaning companies keep their staff and clients safe.
