CleanSolution Services only uses certified GREEN Cleaning Supplies for your office or facility

With Cleansolution Services(CSS) you have a company that only uses janitorial supplies that are green. You don’t have to worry if these supplies meet the proper green certifications.   For example our paper supplies like paper towels and toilet paper are approved by third party  nonprofit organizations GreenSeal.org and Ecologo.org

In some cases it is a requirement that post consumer recycled supplies are used. For example the EPA mandates that if a government agency such federal, state, and local or its contractors uses appropriated federal funds then they must use recycled content products if they spend over $10,000 a year on that product.

According to Ecologo, North America’s most widely recognized and respected certification of environmental leadership, North Americans, who comprise only seven percent of the world’s population, consume nearly half of the world’s tissue paper products. Every year, North Americans use about 50 pounds (22.4 kg) of tissue products per person!!

So with this in mind, CleanSolution will: 1) ensure that our janitorial supplies come from green supply manufacturers. 2) Make sure they are used in a green manner whenever possible and 3) as these green cleaning products are used, we discard the waste in an eco friendly manner.

1) Make sure we use only green cleaning supplies:

Paper fiber products should not be made from virgin forest as it is very wasteful. For example for paper fiber products such as paper towels and bath tissue the EPA recommends that a certain % be made of recycled material. For Paper towels it is 40% and for bath tissue it should be made from 20% recycled content.  Since towel and tissue are at the end of the fibers’ lifecycle it is best to use as close to 100% recycled content.

For every 70 cases of paper towels that are 100% recycled there is the preventive use of an estimated 4,100 kilowatt hours of energy, 7,000 gallons of water and 60 pounds of pollutants!

Green cleaning supplies  also should be manufactured in a green manner. For paper products that means processed chlorine free(PCF) to be truly environmentally friendly.

2) Making sure we use green supplies efficiently in the office or facility:

The best eco friendly way is to create no waste, but with paper products some waste will happen. We can try to use controlled-use dispensing to keep waste from happening. This also keeps maintenance time down while discouraging wasted paper. We provide waste reducing dispensers for hand towels, toilet paper, and hand soap.

3) After use we discard waste as needed. But if we follow steps 1 and 2 as best as possible we will generate the least waste possible!

With Cleansolution Services you will have peace of mind, as we take all our suppliers are green and that supplies are being used in a green manner in your office or place of work. CSS has been able to save clients’ money by  reducing consumption and using less wasteful green supplies.
