Eco-Friendly Cleaning on Trend

Sustainable cleaning, eco-friendly cleaning, green cleaning…. whatever you call it, has seen a significant increase in consumer adoption in recent years, and in 2023 consumers are showing no sign of the trend slowing down.

As the climatic conditions of our planet continue to change, consumers are becoming more knowledgeable about eco-friendly practices. Many continue to advocate using reusable or biodegradable products to reduce plastic waste, whilst others are looking to reduce water or fossil fuel consumption. As we become more environmentally conscious, we must continue to evolve our practices and adopt new technologies to reduce our carbon footprint.

What is Eco-Friendly Cleaning?

Green or eco-friendly cleaning refers to the cleaning process that involves using equipment, supplies and methods that are certified sustainable and cause minimal environmental impact.

In other words, green cleaning is all about using non-toxic, natural cleaning products. These cleaning supplies and methods are safe for the environment and cause no harm to the cleaners and people around them.

How do we support being Green?

Here at Eaton Services Group, being eco-friendly has been part of our genetic makeup and is an important initiative that we have strived to improve year after year. As an ISO 14001 Environmental certified business, our team recognises the genuine impact our services and products can have on the environment and has worked tirelessly with our clients to help them make a real difference.

Established consumer businesses, like medical practices, education providers and industrial warehouses, are among our leading customers adopting eco-friendly cleaning standards. Many of these organisations are introducing mandatory policies that adopt green or sustainable cleaning alternatives to reduce their carbon footprint.

In support of our customers looking to take up the trend to reduce waste, pollution and ozone depletion, Eaton Services Group has a sophisticated range of eco-friendly solutions that specifically support our environment. These solutions include:

  • More significant water-saving and sustainable technologies like our Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO) cleaning system. A patented technology that converts ordinary tap water into a simple, safe and sustainable all-in-one sanitiser (with an SDS rating of 0-0-0) that kills up to 99% of germs without harsh chemicals.

  • More intelligent chemical usage and non-toxic product adoption. With products like Zoono, Stabilised Aqueous Ozone, Oxivir and Aerius, we can minimise toxicity and balance proven germicidal potency, cleaning performance and environmental impact.

  • Switching to more sustainable battery-operated equipment reduces our reliance on fossil fuels and avoids additional carbon emissions or excessive noise production.

  • Proper waste management to protect the environment and encourage eco-friendly waste management techniques that limit the negative impacts of waste processes on our environment.

  • Supply of environmentally friendly consumable products that are compostable or biodegradable to Australian Standards. Our eco-friendly consumables can include coffee cups, lids, bin liners and straws.

  • Use of good quality microfibre cleaning tools that require fewer chemicals in the cleaning process and can be reused hundreds of times.

By adopting products and processes that are more neutral to our surroundings, we can ensure our environment is better cared for and, more importantly, the health of our people is not at risk. Elements like artificial add-ons, phosphates, chlorines, inorganic supplies, and non-biodegradable ingredients pose various health risks when exposed for lengthy periods.

5 Reasons to Adopt Green Cleaning

To help better understand and support the Green Clean movement, here are five things any commercial business should consider when looking to adopt eco-friendly practices.

Green cleaning supports:

  • Better human health, comfort, and well-being.

  • The reduction of chemicals being released into the environment.

  • The decline of plastic waste slows the pace of our planet's growing landfill.

  • Our cleaner workforce by reducing their prolonged exposure to harmful chemicals.

  • Cost reductions with eco-friendly products are becoming more affordable and readily available.
