    For my business, Simply Superb, I plan to use my Green Cleaning Certification in many ways. One way would be showing my future costumers not only am I aiming to be Eco-Friendly, but I took the necessary steps in becoming certified as a professional Eco-Friendly Cleaning Service

    Also, I feel as though it will increase my potential  customer gain due to the knowledge and awareness of hazardous chemicals used in the Cleaning Industry today. I will use my knowledge to promote a well-known clean and hygienic  cleaning service.

    Being green friendly has many benefits towards its users in our society. One benefit is that it provides a cleaner and safer environment for human beings. One is protected from contact with corrosive elements or products that are considered harmful to the human health thus reducing chances of illnesses such as asthma and other breathing difficulties. Other serious diseases such as skin cancer are also avoided.

    Being green friendly as a company helps us increase productivity among workers. It is often said that a healthy people equate to a healthy nation. Being green cleaning certified guarantees the promotion of health among individuals thus reduces the number of absenteeism cases in the workplace. Less absenteeism, therefore, amounts to more effort in the workplace thus more productivity.

    Being a green cleaning certified company helps address the issue of protecting the population and the world from harmful products. As the world strives for sustainability, going green is the way to go. One of the sustainable goals is to ensure a healthy environment by 2030. This can only be achieved by avoiding spillage of chemicals to water bodies or the atmosphere. Having a green cleaning program ensures this happens as their products go through scrutiny and standardization before being used by individuals.

    Being green friendly certified like those found in the IJCSA Green Cleaning Directory, allows a business to be set apart from its competitors. New customers are attracted towards business that recognizes sustainability and safety as key values in today’s world. They are inclined to buy from natural based products as they are assured that their health shall not be compromised in the long run. Being green friendly helps also in retaining other clients and customers of the business. These, therefore, shows that people end up being satisfied by what is brought in the table.

    Finally going green is very economical as it reduces the amount of expenditure used. Turning a business or company to be eco-friendly is that it comes with a large deposit of savings on it. The fewer expenses used means that the company does not have to struggle financially thus providing job security for its members. In most cases, where there is job security, job satisfaction among individuals in a company is guaranteed. (Dholakiya., 2017)

    Ever walked into a building after someone has thoroughly cleaned it ? Smelled that fresh bleach smell. As you look around and see how organized everything is and still that bleach and household cleaning smell. 

    How about ever made the mistake of mixing Bleach with another chemical. Then get this burning in your chest, find it hard to breath? This can come from the harmful chemicals you have mixed together and in most cases the same effects can happen if the chemicals are used separately.

    Which is why most companies provide a go Green or eco Friendly cleaning service. Keeps the air fresh, more productive. Going green is alot healthier than using your everyday products.

    If you are looking for a Green Cleaning Service feel free to check out the IJCSA directory for a green cleaning company near you Green Cleaning Service . Green cleaning is better because at least you don't  have to wear face mask to try and protect your eyes, lungs and waterways .

    So why not go green and receive the same cleaning result as using those household products. Ill be making sure my company is Green Cleaning

    As a small business owner in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina I think it is imperative to our community to offer my clients a "green" alternative to meet a growing demand from the areas client base.  We are a growing metropolis and have managed to build in parks, streams and natural areas into our sprawling city.  Once folks viewed the green movement as a fad, but as many studies of harmful additives corporations are including in their household and industrial cleaners come out, the need to go green is more real than ever.  We as an industry can help spread the benefits of a green cleaning program.

    Not every business is ready to jump on board however as my dentist explained to me during a recent visit.  He told me that in his profession there is an extreme need to have effective products and that unless a "green' alternative product can offer him a minimum of 5 years of successful testing backed by major healthcare monitoring agencies that he has no interest in them.  For him, the risks are too high and he appreciates the peace of mind that the industry standards give him.  He did state however that with those 5 years of studies and at a competitive price he would like to implement those products that give him the option of being more green.

    My business provides our largest client a chance to mix in the use of vinegar and less caustic chemicals but still keep other non green products available in the rotation for certain jobs as well.  I believe that the key to implementing my green program will be communication to my clients.  When I make a listing of chemicals I plan on using on their property I also have a separate column that lists a green alternative to that chemical when available, leaving the choice to the consumer and ultimately allowing the business owner to say they made a great choice, not only in the choice of cleaning products, but with the business that is providing them with the choice.

    In general, I am very happy to provide my accounts with a chance to be a better member of the community.  When I educate my clients as to the risks of using most over the counter cleaners vs. their natural alternatives I feel that I have leveled the playing field a bit by giving them information that they don't get in the big corporation's hyped up TV ads.
