Our Green Practices
Since our founding in 2013, Oregon Green Clean has donated 1% of all sales to the environmental
non-profit Oregon Wild, which "works to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters
as an enduring legacy for all Oregonians". (For more info see oregonwild.org)
2015: 1% of 2nd Quarter sales to the American Red Cross for Nepal Earthquake relief.
2014: 1% of all sales to All Classical Radio, Portland.
Developing Green Practices
- Like many individuals and organizations, we are searching for methods that are kinder to the environment. This is a work in progress and we seek your ideas!
- Reducing packaging: Our most-used cleaning products are purchased in bulk or concentrate form, then dispensed in re-usable bottles.
- Reducing carbon emissions: To reduce employee driving, we try to assign employees to customers close to their own homes. We also try to schedule customers who live close together for service on the same day. We appreciate your cooperation with this effort!
- Reducing paper: We use paper that is chlorine-free and produced with 100% post-consumer recycled materials. We then re-use it as scrap paper, and finally recycle it. (Pages with customer or employee information are shredded then recycled.)
- Reducing plastic: We use gloves and bags that are biodegradable, compostable, and made with renewable resources.
- Reducing water pollutants: We launder our towels with non-toxic, non-phosphate detergent and chlorine-free bleach.
