Sustainability In Cleaning

Aug 29, 2023

Why We Care About Sustainability

It's no secret that the cleaning industry is awash with toxic chemicals and unsustainable practices, many of which are inevitably doing more harm than good.

Sure, your bathroom may be radiantly clean after using a conventional cleaning spray... but at what cost?

You certainly don't want it to be at the expense of our planet.

Or your own.

As more and more people become aware of the environmental impact of their daily activities, the concept of sustainability has become an increasinly important topic.

And for cleaning companies like us, the need for better, more sustainable alternatives to conventional cleaning services (ones that use products with known carcinogenic and harmful sustances) has become increasingly necessary. 

But what does it mean to be sustainable in cleaning?

What Sustainable Means to Us

Sustainable cleaning refers to the use of cleaning procedures and products made with natural, eco-friendly methods and materials that are designed to preserve our health and environmental quality.

Single use items, products that don't degrade overtime in nature, and products filled with harmful toxins are things we avoid. Instead, we opt for reusable, refillable, biodegradable, and compostable options wherever and whenever we can.

We also try to source our cleaning tools (like brushes, vacuums, and sponges) from companies who share the same values we do and are commited to embracing sustainable practices.

Benefits of Sustainable Cleaning

Reducing Our Impact

One of the primary benefits of sustainable cleaning is the reduced impact on our planet. Traditional cleaning methods and products often contain harmful chemicals that can contaminate water sources and soil. By using natural cleaning products, we minimize the release of these toxic substances into our environment.

Improving Health & Wellbeing

Another significant impact of sustainable cleaning are the potential health benefits and improvement of indoor air quality. Many conventional cleaning products release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause respiratory problems and other health issues. Thankfully, natural cleaning products are generally free from these harmful side effects.

Implementing Sustainable Cleaning Practices

Like you, we care about our planet. And that's why choosing cleaning products that are safe and sustainable is a responsibilty we take very seriously. It involves implementing practices and using tools that are holistically focused, conserve resources, and reduce waste.

Here are three, non-negotiable ways we do this:

  1. Natural Cleaning Products: Products that are toxin-free and made with earth friendly ingredients. Always.
  2. Energy-Efficient Equipment: Efficient cleaning equipment to reduce and conserve energy consumption.
  3. Waste Reduction Strategies: Compostable, reusable and refillable supplies that reduce or eliminate plastic and other single use items.

The Future of Cleaning is Sustainable

As we all continue to learn about the impacts of our actions on the environment, it's clear that the future of cleaning lies in sustainability. By making mindful choices about the products and practices we use, we contribute to a healthier planet while also maintaining high standards of cleanliness and hygiene in your home.

The journey to sustainability may not be easy, but the rewards are well worth the effort. And the good news is, you can still enjoy that radiently clean bathroom... without all the nasty side effects and detrimental harm to our earth that conventional cleaning products have.

We call that a win-win.
