What does being a GREEN and SUSTAINABLE business mean to us?

We are thrilled to announce that we were recently nominated for a Sustainable Business Award with The Sustany Foundation which is held to acknowledge and honor businesses in Tampa Bay that embrace the Triple-Bottom line, which are: Social Responsibility, environmental stewardship, and economic impact (people, planet, and profit).

When starting the company I would be surprised if we could stumble our way through explaining the word “sustainable”.

It surprises many that we were a “green” company since our first day of operation and it was not some marketing play we adapted halfway into the venture. We wanted to do a great job at cleaning and do it differently than most companies. We did not offer a “green” package for an extra-fee, it was all green, or nothing. Our chemicals and as much of our our supplies were certified green, eco-friendly, or organic.

We slowly started banking electronically and using the bank’s mobile deposit feature. When we ordered supplies for the office we grouped the packing slip’s in a way that the shipment was combined with other orders. When doing laundry, we procured machines that had the eco-friendly feature to reduce water and electricity. And so on…

Over the course of several years we incorporated many different features, options, and processes until one day we took a step back and realized… WOW… We are REALLY green, dare we mention, a sustainable business!

See, we arrived to our current standards by doing what we thought was right for us, our community, our environment, our business, and our children.

It is a part of our Core Values: Be Real, Help Out, Make Money, and Have Fun
