Green Cleaning – for the health of your indoor environment and the planet.
EcoMaids is making green cleaning the standard in Portland, and local mom-trepeneur Lindsay Dellasega is raising the bar. For EcoMaids, Green Cleaning is more than using products that are less harmful to our health and our environment; it’s about improving the quality of our indoor environment with highly effective cleaning products and methods, and doing it in a sustainable manner that minimizes its overall environmental impact. Beyond the exposure from breathing, eating, and other contact with cleaning agents in our homes, a truly green provider considers life-cycle impacts of chemical production and disposal, waste and water reduction, and sustainable sourcing. Dellasega has set out to mainstream this green approach to cleaning and to business, by raising the standard and making it accessible.
“Many moms think the stronger the cleaner, the more effective it is,” says Lindsay “It’s simply not the case. Often, the chemicals found in conventional cleaning products can be more dangerous than the dirt they’re intended to clean. For example, common surfactants are derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource and toxic resource. Many of them have been banned in virtually all western nations except America.”
Just as important as the consumer’s confidence in the toxin-free, plant-based cleaning products’ ability to clean and disinfect as well as the conventional products, is the means to apply them in our daily lives. EcoMaids caters to the busy professionals, new moms, and business owners that just don’t have the time for a thorough, quality, and eco-conscious cleaning regimen. With EcoMaids taking care of the dirty work, families can re-prioritize the quality of their lives, and spend their time with what matters most.
