The cleaning industry is enormous, consuming billions of pounds of cleaning chemicals & janitorial paper annually. This has a tremendous impact on water, electricity and landfills. Hundreds of millions of pounds of equipment are dumped in landfills every year. Green Cleaning can help preserve our natural resources for future generations.
Improve Health and Productivity - Green Cleaning is important far beyond the outdoor environment. School age children are more vulnerable than adults to indoor pollutants, dust, VOC's, etc. Studies have proven that the positive impacts of a healthy indoor environment include improved school test scores and companies with Green Cleaning programs have documented improved employee productivity, morale and an excellent ROI.

The Brame Green Cleaning Program
Green Cleaning is more than just a new product or piece of equipment. Brame's Green Cleaning Program is a complete approach to creating healthier, more productive facilities without harming the environment.
Helping you make Green Cleaning decisions- Although Green Cleaning is defined as: "cleaning to protect health without harming the environment", it is much more than simply using environmentally preferable cleaning chemicals.
A Holistic Approach - At Brame we believe that Green Cleaning should be a complete program that includes an understanding of the needs of the building occupants, the building structure, furnishings & equipment, cleaning personnel, the organization's mission and the local environment.
From Products to Systems - Certainly, that means selecting the right cleaning chemicals, janitorial paper, tools and equipment for your facility. But it also means understanding how these products are properly used in order to reduce their impact on users, occupants and the environment. It also means implementing the appropriate programs, systems and procedures to ensure your facility is cleaned effectively, efficiently and within your budget.
A Programmed Approach - A cost effective Green Cleaning program is not a "one-size-fits-all" product. We have worked with industry leading suppliers and system developers to create the Brame Green Cleaning Program specifically to help you make the choices that are appropriate for your unique situation.
