A couple of good reasons to switch to an eco-friendly, green cleaning service. Conventional cleaning practices utilize . . .
- 8 billion pounds of chemicals that are hazardous to your health and to the environment
- 4.5 billion pounds of janitorial paper products, consuming tens of millions of trees
- 1 billion pounds of tools and equipment, filling 40,000 garbage trucks headed to landfills
Yikes! These statistics are found on the website of EcoMaids, a greener professional cleaning service company. EcoMaids offers residential and commercial cleaning services, but is committed to using healthier cleaning products and more eco-friendly practices in general.
Often, this is one of the first things people do when beginning a more ‘green’ lifestyle. Using biodegradable, environmentally friendly and non-toxic cleaners is a great way to reduce dangerous and unhealthy chemicals in our lives and in our environment. EcoMaids uses the Options for Life non-toxic cleaning product line and offers the products to their customers as well.
In addition to offering a full-line of standard cleaning services, EcoMaids also offers Truly-Green Wash & Fold Laundry service . . . It all appeals to me!
EcoMaids is a relatively new cleaning service franchise with operations in several States (see EcoMaids locations here). Those of us fortunate enough to live in northern New Jersey, have access to the first EcoMaids based in Essex County.
The owner is willing to travel outside Essex . . . I’m going to give them a try!
