Switching to Green Cleaning Supplies to Improve Employee Health

Creating a Sustainable Distribution FacilityCleaning with “green” supplies is becoming more popular thanks to a desire to be nicer to the environment, but have you thought about the positive effects it can also have on your employees? It turns out that switching to green cleaning supplies is better for their health and work productivity, too. If there was ever a simple way to improve some aspect of your company’s working conditions, this easy switch is it. Below, we’ve provided a handy overview on what you need to know about incorporating green solutions into your company’s cleaning supplies.

What Makes Green Cleaning Supplies “Green?”

With so much hype around environmentally safe cleaners, it helps to know what to look for when searching for green products. The ingredients used in true “green” cleaners are biodegradable and don’t contain chemicals that would harm the environment or wildlife. Unfortunately, many hidden hazards lurk in other cleaning products known to pose health and environmental hazards.
That being said, green products also don’t usually smell or feel as abrasive as other mainstream industrial cleaners. e-clean products are the state of the art in “green” cleaning with all products certified under the EPA’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE). EPA’s Design for the Environment program helps consumers, businesses, and institutional buyers identify cleaning and other products that perform well and are safer for human health and the environment.
A little bit of research can go a long way in finding the perfect green cleaner.

Green Cleaning Products are Safer for Everyone

Keeping employees safe and your facility in compliance is also an important piece to consider. When you switch to environmentally friendly supplies, not only are you decreasing your impact on the environment, but the risks to your employees will decrease too. Making the switch to green cleaners will not only decrease exposure to harsh chemicals known to cause health related problems, but also show your commitment to a sustainable future and the health of your employees.
