ABCO Shares 4 Ways Facilities Can Support The Planet On Earth Day — And Beyond

ABCO logoIt’s estimated that 40% of the ocean’s surface is covered in plastic waste. To celebrate Earth Day on April 22, ABCO Cleaning Products, a leading provider of sustainable cleaning tools, shares recommendations on how facilities can help support the planet.

“Earth Day serves as a reminder of our impact on the environment,” Carlos Albir, Jr., Vice President of Operations, ABCO Cleaning Products, said. “In today’s landscape, where sustainability dominates discussions, there’s a heightened urgency to enact changes that will truly help our planet.”

Consider the following:  

  1. Promote waste reduction and recycling — Implementing a waste reduction program can help decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills, thereby helping decrease greenhouse gas emissions. Encourage employees to reduce waste by providing color-coded recycling bins, composting, and waste bins.
  2. Invest in renewable energy —Consider installing solar panels to help generate clean, renewable electricity onsite. Switching to renewable energy at facilities helps reduce dependence on fossil fuels and lowers carbon emissions and energy costs.
  3. Use third-party certified cleaning tools — Cleaning tools certified by a reputable third-party organization, such as Green Seal®, help ensure the product is sustainably sourced, manufactured and packaged. Using cleaning tools from certified, trustworthy organizations helps steer clear of greenwashing tactics.
  4. Conduct regular sustainability audits —A sustainability audit provides valuable insights into a facility’s social, environmental, and economic performance. Utilize the findings to develop targeted strategies aimed at helping the environment.
