Organic and sustainable

Our chemical suppliers are committed to creating high-quality products that are safe for the environment and your health. Furthermore, they only use recycled packaging and high concentrations of plant extracts, citrus oils, and vinegars. These natural ingredients don’t pollute the air or waterways, and are safe for pets and children.

Powerful & effective

We’ve built our reputation as providers of ecocleaning services for businesses and families, so all the products we use are safe, and eliminate dirt -first time. We rigorously test the cleansing and disinfecting formulas of every product we use, so they’re organic yet tough; natural, and 100% chemical free.

Non Toxic

Our plant-based cleaning agents never expose your family, pets, home or business to harmful chemicals or fumes. Our products don’t contain toxins, pollutants, or suspected carcinogens such as VOCs, solvents, chlorine, ammonia, sulphates, or irritating dyes and perfumes. When available, unscented formulas are used: they are ideal for people with asthma, allergies, and skin or respiratory sensitivities.

Planet friendly

We are doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint, which is why all the products we use are made from 100% recyclable materials. They contain organic cleaning agents, are devoid of harmful chemicals, and are 100% biodegradable. Our product manufacturers do not perform any testing on animals, nor use animal by-products, so they’re clean for the planet – and clean for your home or office.

INNOVATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS

We have developed the following Innovative programs to ensure that we are a Truly Green Company:

  • Biodegradable bin liners allow recycle scanners to easily assess what is in the bin and are better for the environment
  • Using a Jfill Dispenser, which has the following benefits:
    • Reduces work place hazards by eliminating chemical exposure
    • Accurate and consistent dilution / eliminates tampering and manually diluting procedures
    • Environmentally sound and cost effective
    • Reduce packing and solid waste disposal / recycling
    • Requires less storage and handling

  • Making sure that rubbish is placed in the correct category bins for recycling and sorting.
