Why Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products Matter

Why Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products Matter

 

As CAF learns more about the world we live in — and the uncertainty of our environment — we are strongly committed to preserving the precious earth we have. With practices like bioremediation and limited water usage, we are intentional about the products we create and sell to ensure they’re safe for you and the planet. Here’s why environmentally friendly cleaning products and practices matter to us — and why they should matter to you.

 

Better for the environment

Because our ingredients are derived from natural materials, we can prevent toxins and carbon dioxide emissions from being released into the environment. In 2017 alone, we saved 40,000 tons of CO2. It all happens through a process called bioremediation, which uses natural microbes to clean surfaces and stains instead of harsh chemicals. These microbes also prevent the build-up of hazardous waste, which means we leave behind no toxic waste or contaminated water runoff.

 

Sustainability

In simplest terms, sustainability means protecting the natural environment and its resources so that humans and nature can continue to coexist peacefully. At CAF, that means making solutions that drastically cut down on resources — like water and crude oil — that are typically used to make cleaning products and to actually clean. In just one year, CAF and our customers were able to:

 

 

We’re proud of our efforts to become more sustainable, and we have no plans to slow down.

 

Protecting the future of our planet

Sustainability is more than just reducing our use of natural resources; it protects the environment and combats the effects of climate change and pollution. It also serves as a means to protect our health and ensure our planet is still useful and safe for future generations. Environmentally cleaning products aid in that protection. At CAF, we are able to save more than 14.2 million plastic containers a year.

 

Smart and responsible business

More and more consumers are expecting the businesses and facilities they support to have some sort of eco-aware approach to their operations. By using environmentally friendly cleaning products in your industrial or retail location, you are also acknowledging your end user or customer’s preferences. That’s smart business, and will ensure that you stay ahead of the curve.

 

 

Our commitment to safety and sustainability

Our cleaning solutions are safe to use on the Earth, which means they’re safe for you, too. CAF is committed to developing products, answers, and processes that are not only effective but reduce our carbon footprint — and yours. Browse all of our indoor and outdoor products to see what good they can do for you, your business and the planet.
