New Year, New Eco Friendly Office Cleaning

New Year, New Eco Friendly Office Cleaning

I might sound like a cliché, but there’s no better time than the new year to make a few pledges to better yourself and those around you. Making an effort environmentally is an excellent place to start, as it costs absolutely nothing and a few lifestyle alterations can make a big difference to the planet and its inhabitants. This ethos stretches to cleaning too, and by swapping out some of the usual suspects in your commercial cleaning cupboard you can make your first steps towards your company eco-pledge.

Swap your substances

Lots of chemical cleaners can have negative side effects for our planet, one being the unpleasant pollution levels caused by the manufacturing process of certain products. You can make conscious choices around which products you opt for, and many off the shelf brands offer eco-conscious alternatives to known cleaners. If you’re feeling resourceful, there are plenty of DIY cleaning products that are easy to make and completely natural.

Upgrade your tools

It’s easy to fall on the simplicity of paper towels and disposable wipes to make cleaning a quick job, but it’s certainly not the most eco-friendly approach to wiping the office kitchen. Instead, upgrade your arsenal to include some good quality microfiber cloths. Microfiber cloths stop smearing and promote a better cleaning result, and they require less product to be effective. Best of all, they can be washed and reused for years, leaving you with a clean conscience too.

Clean up your act

It’s the culmination of lots of small acts that help the bigger picture, so question your choices. Could you use a dustpan and brush instead of the hoover for a little spill? Could you open the window instead of spraying harmful air fresheners? Saying yes to just one of these questions is enough to take a step towards a greener future.
