7.3 Environmental considerations in cleaning

As a cleaner, you can make a difference for the environment with these easy steps. First, choose cleaning products labelled as eco-friendly—they’re better for nature. Use concentrated solutions to reduce packaging waste, and say no to single-use items, favouring reusable materials.

Be mindful of water use, turn off taps when not needed, and choose energy-efficient cleaning tools. Remember to sort waste properly, separating recyclables from non-recyclables, and dispose of them responsibly. Consider natural ventilation over air conditioning to save energy, and explore green cleaning methods like vinegar and baking soda.

Pick products with minimal packaging, made from recycled materials if possible. Invest in sustainable cleaning tools and opt for environmentally friendly pest control. Share the importance of eco-friendly cleaning with colleagues and building occupants, encouraging everyone to join in. Stay informed about the latest green cleaning practices to continue making a positive impact on our planet.
