Be Green Carpet Cleaning’s Commitment To Sustainability
Be Green Carpet Cleaning is about more than just making your carpets clean. Because we’re a green business, we know it takes more than just reducing our waste and choosing sustainable materials. We hope to one day be one of the most sustainable cleaning companies and continue to make a difference in our communities.
Be Green Carpet Cleaning is focused on company sustainability and going green as a core part of our business model. Carpet cleaning uses many resources, from the chemicals that remove dirt to the water used in the service.
This is why we focus on saving water and using eco-friendly products and techniques such as dry foam encapsulation rather than traditional “steam cleaning” or hot water extraction.
Who is Be Green Carpet Cleaning?
Be Green Carpet Cleaning brings sustainability to more than just our dry carpet cleaning and disinfecting services. We also work to provide our customers with healthier living spaces. With a shared love for sustainability and excellence, our service providers and administrative staff work together to make Be Green Carpet Cleaning a sustainable business today.
Be Green Carpet Cleaning Sustainability
You won’t find greenwashing in our sustainability efforts. Instead, you’ll find that we are intentional as a business to be more eco-friendly. We have worked hard to establish best practices within Be Green Carpet Cleaning, but we know that sustainability requires more than just what we do within our own business. One of the ways we’ve chosen to do this is by partnering with One Tree Planted.
Why Work with a Green Business?
Every little thing we can do for the environment makes a big difference. While efforts such as compostable packaging or green cleaning products might feel small, they make a significant positive impact over time.
Environmentally friendly companies can do several things to help their business be more green:
- Make eco-friendly charitable donations
- Choose green suppliers and manufacturers
- Make sustainability part of their core values
- Utilize green energy whenever possible
- …and so much more!
Our choice to make our business more sustainable stems from being aware of the issues, and understanding how we can make changes to contribute to a cleaner future for our planet.
We have established company sustainability in a few core areas of our business:
- Working with natural and organic cleaning agents
- Minimizing waste and using sustainable materials
- Purchasing green equipment and products
- Lowering energy and water consumption and improving efficiency
- Equal and fair opportunities for staff and service providers
One-for-One Be Green Carpet Cleaning Company Sustainability Efforts
Sustainability isn’t something one business or one person can do alone, which is why we’ve chosen to contribute to One Tree Planted. One Tree Planted has planted over 40 million trees across the globe since 2014 and shares our vision of a greener world.
Through donations from our services, One Tree Planted works with its partners to grow saplings and plant them during rainy seasons. Trees are monitored to ensure growth, and then they report your impact! Through this green company, we can aid in environmental conservation and restoration and help with global reforestation efforts.
Be Green is committed to planting a tree for every service we provide to our customers.
We have begun contributing to One Tree Planted this year, and with their help, we intend to become one of the most sustainable green companies.
Here’s how many trees we’ve planted: 2,716
How Does One Tree Planted Fit Into Be Green Carpet Cleaning?
One Tree Planted has the vision to make it easy for anyone to help the environment and make planting trees sustainable for anyone.
For every dollar donated, One Tree Planted will plant one tree.
Through their partnerships with U.S. Forest Service, U.S. State Forest, and Conservation District, they can plant trees in various areas across the United States.
One Tree Planted shares many of our core sustainability values, making them the perfect way for us to make eco-friendly charitable contributions. While cleaning carpets and upholstery is our specialty, planted trees are One Tree Planted’s specialty.
Why Plant Trees?
Trees are a lot more helpful than we often give them credit for. They clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitats for over 80% of the world’s terrestrial fauna. These forests also provide jobs to over a billion people and are a vital ingredient in nearly a quarter of all medicines.
One Tree Planted plants trees in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific. They have planted trees in more than a dozen US states, three Canadian provinces, and Mexico in North America alone.
In the wake of major wildfires across California, many of their restoration projects have been focused on repairing damage caused by resource extraction, restoring forests, and even protecting endangered Orcas through their sustainability efforts.
How Much Does it Cost to Plant a Tree?
One Tree Planted has more than doubled the number of trees planted yearly since it began in 2014. They have dedicated extensive time and effort to make it easier for everyone to give back to the environment. One Tree Planted is committed to planting one tree for every $1 donated.
You may be thinking to yourself, how can you plant a tree for only $1? The answer isn’t very simple, and the cost of planting a tree can vary quite a bit based on location and project size. This is why they work with local planting partners to lay out where, why, and how the trees will be planted.
The direct costs of planting trees are:
- Seed/seedlings (typically $0.30 to $0.80 per tree)
- Site preparation & planting (typically $0.20 to $0.50 per tree)
- Equipment & materials (typically $0.05 to $0.20 per tree)
- Site monitoring & maintenance for three years (typically $0.30 to $1 per tree)
One Tree Planted covers the cost of the seed and seedlings at a minimum, and everything else is covered within their one-tree planted model.
