While we may recycle all of our paper in the office and steer clear of plastic water bottles, one area in which many offices still fall short of their green ambitions is in the office cleaning department. Often office cleaning companies still use harsh chemicals and detergents to clean work-spaces, and because of our misguided belief that ‘the stronger the chemical, the better the clean’, workplaces are often quite happy to let these harmful products continue to be used.
