4 Small Ways You Can Go Green

4-small-ways-can-go-green

Going green. You’ve probably heard of that phrase ever since you can remember. So much so that you’ve become almost immune to it and sadly, don’t pay much attention to it anymore. The problem is our mindset. We expect that the things we need and want will be supplied to us forever, like our own Cornucopia. With the way we’re treating our environment now, this won’t be the case. Shortages are more frequent, places that are supposed to be always hot or cold are not anymore, and a lot of animals are becoming extinct. However, it’s not too late to go green. Small actions can make huge impacts. Here are some ways Greenforce Clean Team, a company that offers House Cleaning Services, would like to share to you when it comes to helping Mother Earth:

1.Maximize the capacity of plastic bags
Aside from carrying the things you bought from the grocery store, plastic bags have a lot of usage. For one, you can use it as a trash can. You can also use it to cover shoes, clothes, or books that you won’t be using for a while so that when you do use them, it won’t be covered in dust. Plastic bags are reusable, so store them in a drawer or box, so that whenever a family member is in need of one, you’ll know where to look.

2. Use used paper
You never know how much you use paper until you’re keeping tabs on it, especially if there’s two or more people in the household who are going to school. Although it can feel good to help them throw out assignments, research papers, and essays once school is out, try to reconsider. The back portion of some papers are almost always blank and can still be written on. Be efficient and use those for when you need to scribble down a note or a grocery list.

3. Transform water and wine bottles into vases
Thanks to the Internet, people from all over the world have the opportunity to share their creative DIY projects. The best part of this is that a lot of these videos use products that are most likely lying around your home. Numerous videos use bottles since it has a lot of uses —you can use them as a flower vase, a pen holder, or a conversation piece. All you need to do is unleash your creative side.

4. Think before you throw
Basically, ‘think before you throw’ is the point of this whole thing. Being efficient not only saves you money, but it can also help the environment. Thinking things through might seem absurd when it comes to taking out the trash, but there are some products that take a long time to break down. These are harmful. That’s why when we do Home Cleaning in San Francisco, we do so by using non-toxic cleaning products. It’s our way of helping Mother Earth.

Greenforce Clean Team has been keeping the homes of residents and businesses clean since 1993. For more than 20 years, we have provided Cleaning Services in San Francisco, California that is nothing short of exceptional. We also are an eco-friendly company. This is why we only use products that aren’t harmful to the environment. For more information, please call us at 415-673-3266.
