Environmentally Preferable Products
Most cleaners are relatively safe to use, and have only a small impact on the environment. However, some cleaners contain chemicals that are harmful. The trick is to use the mildest product you can that still does the job.
Searching through hundreds of products to find what is needed can take a lot of time. To help businesses in our project area with this search, we reviewed and tested some products and then provided samples to anyone who requested them.
We had a number of environmentally preferable products available and provided samples of:
- Bath & Tile Cleaner
- Glass Cleaner
- Metal Cleaner & Polish
- Toilet Cleaner
- General Purpose Cleaner/Degreaser
THERE WAS A CATCH
Well, nothing is free. After using the samples we asked the businesses to complete a survey form to tell us what they thought of the products and if they decided to start using them with regularity.
Please e-mail us if you are interested in obtaining more information about the product samples we handed out.
