Cleaning and Toxics
Using Green Cleaning Products And Services

What Is It?

Recent studies have shown that toxins from cleaning products in the workplace can often have negative health effects on employees, leading to an increase in medical absences and/or a reduction in worker productivity. Green cleaning products are cleaning products that use non-toxic and organic materials to achieve the same sanitation results as traditional chemical-based cleaning products.

Benefits

By converting to less toxic cleaning products, businesses can improve the air quality by reducing the amount of toxic chemicals in the office space. This, in turn, reduces the possible risk of employees suffering short and long-term negative health effects from exposure to such chemicals. Additionally, the risk of contamination and chemical leeching after the disposal of such products is dramatically reduced.
