By using eco friendly cleaning products in your office, you’ll improve air quality and minimise pollution and your impact on the environment. If your office is working to become more sustainable, choosing green office cleaning service which uses eco friendly office cleaning products is a good place to start.
To understand the importance of using eco friendly cleaning products, let’s look at the flip side.
Harsh chemicals used in many cleaning products are harmful for humans and other animals and plants – and the ‘volatile chemical compounds’ contained within them are now a key contributor to air pollution. As reported on BBC News, “US research has found that chemicals in everyday household products are now a key contributor to city air pollution, rivalling some vehicle emissions.” This doesn’t just affect your employees’ air quality and health – but your wider community, and ultimately our planet.
Further to air quality, harsh office cleaning products used in sinks, toilets, dishwashers and appliances are rinsed down drains. Whilst the majority of contaminants are removed before the water goes back to rivers and lakes, some remain and over time have a substantial impact on our wildlife.
We recommend that you use both eco friendly cleaning products in your office and choose a reputable office cleaning company committed to sustainable practices and contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
