Earth Day 2019: celebrate the planet with sustainable facility supplies

Veritiv Facility Solutions | April 22, 2019

Just because you’re at work, doesn’t mean you have to skip out on Earth Day celebrations. You can rideshare with coworkers to and from, organize a group activity to plant seeds, or take the stairs instead of the elevator. But if you’re looking for a longer-lasting, more meaningful way to celebrate at your facility, start by incorporating sustainable commercial and janitorial cleaning products into your cleaning program.

When selecting eco-friendly commercial cleaning products, here are some key attributes to look for:

  • Made from recycled content or recyclable packaging
  • Contributes to third party environmental and building certifications, such as EcoLogo™, Green Seal™ or LEED
  • Biodegradable and breaks down faster in the landfill
  • Contains small amount of plastic resins 

Looking to take your green efforts one step further? Then you may be interested in the Green Gauge™ sustainability tool. This simple device analyzes your products and identifies more sustainable alternatives. It also helps in LEED certification by comparing your products against LEED v4 O+M standards.
