What it means to Green Team Cleaners

Our health and the health of our planet are interconnected.  What we put in a system will directly affect what comes out.  When we rely heavily on harsh chemicals, plastics, and other wasteful practices to clean, we are doing ourselves a disservice.  Convenient cleaning solutions often fall short of our best interests.  You should not have to compromise your health or values just to have a clean home.  At Green Team Cleaners, we believe having a clean home should also mean having be a healthy home.  For us, being eco-conscious means always learning and adjusting to make the best decisions for the Earth and those we serve.

How to Be Eco-COnscious while cleaning?

Here are some key principles and practices associated with eco-conscious cleaning:

  1. Eco-conscious cleaning with baking soda, lemons, essential oils, and bamboo scrubbersNon-toxic cleaning products: Focus on using natural, biodegradable, and non-toxic cleaning agents. This includes using plant-based ingredients, such as vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, and essential oils. These ingredients are safer for human and environment health compared to harsh chemicals commonly found in conventional cleaning products.
  2. Reduce water and energy consumption: Practices like turning off faucets when not in use, using absorbent cloths or mops that require less water, and choosing energy-efficient cleaning equipment are ways you can reduce your consumption of water and energy while cleaning.
  3. Waste reduction:  Choose reusable cleaning tools, such as washable cloths or mop heads, instead of disposable alternatives. Use compostable tools such as bamboo scrub brushes and toothbrushes.  Purchase items in bulk to avoid additional packaging waste.
  4. Sustainable Packaging: Use glass or stainless steel spray bottles that can be refilled at a zero-waste store or with products sold in bulk to reduce single-use plastic waste. Look for packaging that is biodegradable or recyclable.  Remember to recycle additional items that may unavoidable for you at this time.  Be sure to check the label to ensure you are recycling them properly.
  5. Indoor air quality:  Use vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters to trap dust and allergens.  Avoid aerosol sprays that can release harmful particles.  Be sure your home has proper ventilation during and after cleaning.
  6. Responsible sourcing: You should opt for products that are ethically produced, derived from renewable resources, and free from animal testing.Cruelty free, sustainable, recyclable, vegan, fair trade, no animal testing
