We’ve all heard the three Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle. Those last two get a lot of hype, but what about that first one? Reducing waste is one of the best ways you can save time, money and the environment. Maybe your facility already uses eco-friendly products like alternative fiber paper products or recycled resin trash bags. That’s a great start, but being sustainable extends beyond environmentally certified products — it’s about changing behaviors and being mindful of your impact on the earth. Ahead are three key areas in which to reduce waste and renew your commitment to a more sustainable workplace.
Time and Labor
The first way to reduce waste is by lessening the amount of time it takes to complete a task by ensuring your employees have the right cleaning equipment for the job. Make an upfront investment on cleaning equipment now to save time and labor down the road. The right equipment will boost productivity without sacrificing the quality of the work. As an example, the Proteam GoFree backpack vacuum cleans 30% faster than a corded backpack and 5x faster than an upright vacuum. The time saved could be worth far more than the cost of the equipment.
