Green Cleaning: Healthier for the environment & employees.

We all want to make choices that are kinder to our environment but sometimes it’s difficult to determine what products to use. The terms "plant-based", "eco-friendly", "biodegradable", "natural" and "ecological" certainly sound better for the planet but how do we determine which claims are genuine? Commercial cleaning chemicals can be dangerous if not used correctly. Strong chemicals can damage the skin and eyes.  Skin can burn or become irritated, requiring cleaning staff to wear rubber gloves, safety goggles and in some cases a respiratory masks to protect against the inhalation of hazardous gasses. But what if you could find a range of cleaning products that have achieved the lowest hazard classification? i.e. no need for gloves and goggles during cleaning.

Sure by Diversey Care

One such product range is SURE by Diversey Care, a comprehensive offering of plant-based, 100% biodegradable cleaning products designed to deliver superior professional results while being safe for people and kind to the environment. The benefits of non-toxic cleaning: Healthier Work Environment. Going green will reduce the number of chemicals being absorbed into the skin or breathe in by the person cleaning. This has wider health benefits to the individual and the organization in terms of fewer sick leave absences. Purer Environment Changing to greener cleaning methods helps reduce the number of harmful chemicals that are being released into the environment and reduce pollution to our waterways and air. Safer Products Conventional cleaning products pose risks such as chemical burns to the cleaner's skin and eyes. Green cleaners aren't corrosive and meet strict standards regarding inhalation toxicity, combustibility and skin absorption. Better Air Quality Strong chemical odors can be offensive but many green cleaning products include plant-based ingredients such as sugar beet, maize, straw bran, wheat bran and coconut and contain no perfumes, chlorine, phosphate or oxide compounds – making them altogether more pleasant. Less Expensive Correct dispensing through dosing and dispensing systems assures controlled costs, with no risk of over or underdosing. Also most come with packaging that can be refilled or reused, ensuring great cleaning and less waste. Investing in green products is an investment in workplace Health & Safety, cleaning in an environmentally sound way reduces the risk of sick days for employees and the risk of fires and chemical spills. Investing now will result in savings down the line. As concerns for health become more prevalent and people become more aware of the harsh effects cleaning chemicals are having, they're going back to basics and looking for greener ways to clean. Employing green services also contributes to a greater image for the company. It will appear more attractive to employees, clients, and investors.
