Benefits of Green Cleaning
Green cleaning can be defined as the process of using environmentally safe cleaning products that have minimal negative impact on the environment, and consequently the society, and improve our overall health and well-being.
Today’s society has become more environmentally conscious in that we are constantly on the look-out for ‘organic’and ‘eco-friendly’ materials. From food to bags to even cars, we have the option of making the ‘safer’ choice. Stores such as Whole Foods Markets and GNC thrive on consumers who are willing to go the extra mile to receive a product that is nicer to the environment and gentler on their bodies. With this rising popularity of eco-friendly products in mind, it isn’t surprising that this trend has permeated the cleaning service industry too. In fact, one of the major ways cleaning companies differentiate themselves is by being more open-minded about such products. An eco-conscious business will be more trusted and valued than someone who is unwilling to include green-supplies.
According to this informative article, bio-based cleaning products are made out of agricultural by-products, such as soybeans and citrus products. These naturally-found sources are much less harmful than their chemical-based counterparts. The benefits of green cleaning products are manifold, such as:
(a) Drastic reduction in the exposure to toxins, resulting in much lesser chances of falling prey to allergies or ashthma
(b) Minimal air-pollutants, reducing the toxic effects on our bloodstream and internal organs
(c) Minimal irritation to skin and eye – this is especially useful for those with sensitive or dry skin
(d) Improved maintenance of facilities due to less abrasive materials
(b) Healthier employees due to a cleaner and purer office facility, which improves productivity and happiness
Despite these benefits, green cleaning products haven’t been fully accepted because of their high cost. The price barrier is quite steep for some companies who are waiting for a more optimal cost value before including these into their arsenal of supplies. However, green cleaning products could be thought of as an investment that will pay off in the long-term, especially since we expect its popularity to soar in the coming years.
