Can Your Company Be Any More Green?
Green, eco-friendly, carbon footprint – all buzzwords of course, but behind them there lies a serious message. No matter what your industry, it’s important to make sure you’re taking as many steps as you can to improve your environmentally-friendly policies.
There are lots of areas to consider when looking at becoming a greener company, and using an environmentally-friendly cleaning company is an important first step. Many things, such as plastic bin liners and harsh chemical cleaners can be done away with and discussing this with your cleaning contractor should make sure that you are all on the same page.
Aside from these, there are some more important things you can think about when considering whether your company measures up in the green stakes:
Daytime cleaning can be of benefit to both the environment and your bottom line, as it does away with the need for your office to be lit into the late evening or overnight. By fitting your cleaning in in the daytime, you can cut down on utility costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
Recycling – What and How Often?
Do you know what does and doesn’t get recycled in your building? Even if your company is not the only tenant, it’s important to get a handle on this – confidential recycling is already a great start, but what else can make its way into a recycling bin, rather than landfill?
Eco-Friendly Cleaners and Processes
Clear communication with your cleaning contractor can ensure that you have the same goals and values. Make it clear to your cleaner that eco-friendly products are a must for you and ensure that they can accommodate this and any other measures you wish to put in place to improve your environmental impact.
These are only three simple steps that you can take to improve your carbon footprint, but they are almost essential. If you’ feel ready in taking the next step to a fully environmentally-friendly cleaner, why not get a free quote today, and see what we can do to help?
