Earth Day 2019: celebrate the planet with sustainable facility supplies
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.
