5 Recomended Steps to a Greener Workplace

At CLEANING USA, we are dedicated to cleaning with environmentally responsible products to reduce contaminants and help protect our planet. Here, we present five straightforward steps to create a greener and more sustainable workplace environment.

1. Take Control of Paper Usage
Did you know the average U.S. office worker consumes a staggering 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year? You can make a significant impact by implementing simple changes. Print on both sides of a sheet and repurpose old documents for faxes, scrap paper, or drafts. By doing so, you can dramatically reduce paper consumption and help save our precious trees. Additionally, switch to draft mode when printing to minimize ink usage.

2. Maximize Computer Efficiency
Believe it or not, computers in the business sector unnecessarily waste a staggering $1 billion worth of electricity annually. Taking responsibility for your workplace’s energy consumption can make a substantial difference. Develop the habit of turning off your computer when you leave for the day. During work hours, set your computer to go to sleep during short breaks. These simple actions can reduce energy use by up to 70 percent, contributing to a greener future.

3. Embrace “Green” Products
To foster a cleaner and healthier workplace, switch to nontoxic and biodegradable cleaning products. Invest in furniture, carpeting, and paint that are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to prevent the release of harmful chemicals. By making this shift, you’ll create a workspace that promotes well-being and sustainability.

4. Bring Your Own Containers
Eliminate disposable plates, cups, and utensils from your workplace kitchen. Encourage employees to bring their plastic, reusable containers from home. Implement the use of biodegradable soaps and opt for recycled paper or cloth towels in the bathroom and kitchen. These small changes can collectively reduce waste and environmental impact.

5. Choose Eco-Friendly Cleaning Services
When it comes to maintaining a green workplace, your choice of cleaning services matters. At CLEANING USA, we are committed to “living green.” We use environmentally friendly cleaning products, eco-conscious vacuums, and microfiber dusting cloths. By partnering with a “green” cleaning company, you demonstrate your commitment to environmental sustainability and set an example for others.
