Earth Day is all about celebrating our amazing planet, and taking whatever steps we can to make sure that it will be clean and safe for future generations.
Every year, we celebrate Earth Day on April 22 – which happens to fall on a Sunday this year!
Earth Day is an amazing opportunity to think about the environment. But here’s the thing… We believe that the mission of Earth Day is way too important for just one single day. Instead, we know that it’s important to think green 24/7/365!
That’s why, at Sweeping Dimensions Cleaning Service, we take care to offer a full range of green cleaning products for all commercial and residential jobs. We take care to make sure that our cleanings aren’t just 100% effective, but also totally eco-friendly.
And, every now and then, we like to pass the secrets to a truly green clean on to our clients!
From separating out your recycling to reducing your energy usage, there are plenty of different steps you can take to make cleaning a more sustainable, earth-friendly activity. One of the easiest ways to go green all year long is to stock up on environmentally friendly cleaning supplies.
Ready to make your home or office greener? Here are some reliable, sustainable cleaning products worth checking out:
Dawn concentrated dish soap
Here at SDCS, we love this stuff. It’s a gentle cleaner with a lot of punch, and is extremely versatile. Dawn cuts through grease like no other dish soap. It’s great for almost all surfaces, no matter how delicate. You can put it to work cleaning dishes, touch points (like light switches), baseboards, cabinet doors, and more.
One great thing about Dawn concentrated is that a small amount can go a long way. This means that you won’t have to buy this product as often, helping conserve plastic. What’s more, many Dawn products are made with biodegradable cleaning ingredients, making them better for the environment. The company also does a lot of work helping with wildlife conservation.
Bon Ami Cleanser
This is another SDCS favorite. Bon Ami Cleanser is toxin-free and biodegradable. It’s also been around since forever ago – we’re talking the 1800s here. You can use Bon Ami on a wide variety of surfaces, and it’s always safe to use around kids and pets. It’s simple, powerful stuff – with no unnecessary dyes, perfume, or mystery chemicals.
Microfiber towels and mop
No lint gets left behind when using microfiber. Our teams prefer cutting edge microfiber towels to terry cloth. When used the right way, microfiber picks up way more dirt, debris, and dust than a traditional towel or mop. Even better, it’s gentle on all surfaces,, and extremely versatile. You can use same (clean) towel for different parts of your home and even on your car. Microfiber towels and pads are also machine washable – meaning that you won’t constantly need to be throwing away and restocking on towels. This saves you money – and does a lot to help save the environment!
Bamboo “paper” towels
We all have gotten so used to using a paper towel and then instantly throwing it away. But with bamboo towels, it’s different. These products can be used continually and are machine washable. By some estimates, you may be able to use each towel up to 100 times – helping replace nearly 300 rolls of traditional paper towels! They’re great for drying hands, damp wiping surfaces, dusting, etc. You’ll definitely find lots of way to put these amazing sheets to work.
Tooth Brush (an old one)
Instead of rushing out to buy a new cleaning tool, why not reuse and recycle? For example, an old toothbrush is a great tool to help tackle problem spots all over your house. You can use a tooth brush for cleaning grout, reaching tight corners, getting into the areas around your faucets, polishing around your door handles, and so on.
