The Importance of Using Green Cleaning Products
Cleaning products are a ubiquitous part of our lives; however, how often do you think about the effects of using conventional products? Most individuals and businesses do not put any thought into the product they are using outside of its effectiveness and cost.
Cleaning has become much like throwing away trash; Out of sight, out of mind. However, just because conventional cleaning products are out of sight does not mean that they won’t have an impact on the environment or your personal health.
At Movers Not Shakers!, we take steps to protect both our employees and the environment by using safe, environmentally friendly cleaning products. Conventional cleaners are an issue environmentally and are often linked to serious negative health implications. According to the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education to protect human health and the environment, fumes from cleaning products may induce asthma, can be laced with carcinogens, and can cause chemical burns, poisonings and allergies.
Movers, Not Shakers! uses one of the worldwide leaders in environmentally sound and non-toxic cleaning products, Simple Green, for all of our cleaning purposes, which include our offices, our trucks, and especially our green reusable bins. Prior to being dropped off at your home or business, our reusable bins are thoroughly cleaned and sterilized using these environmentally friendly cleaning products. Because these bins are used hundreds of times a year, it is imperative that we–as a green company–utilize the best and most environmentally friendly cleaning materials available.
In addition to our use of environmentally friendly cleaning products and cleaning practices, we can also help our customers with cleaning their apartments and homes. While you’re moving, it can be tough to find the time to clean the apartment you are moving out of or the apartment into which you are moving. As such, we work with a locally-owned green cleaning company, Greenhouse Eco-Cleaning, to offer our customers a way to complete the moving process in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Greenhouse Eco-Cleaning provides residential and commercial cleaning services that are green and utilize organic products and biodegradable materials.
We believe that being green extends to every aspect of our business operation, and we are continuing to strive to make our operation even greener. As a consumer, you can also help the environment by switching from conventional toxic cleaners to environmentally friendly ones. Simple green has a whole line of green household cleaning products.
