This franchisor recently earned a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Design for the Environment certification.

This is because Oxi Fresh:

1. Is all natural, non-toxic and safe for kids and pets—products contain low VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) Employs Water Conservation: Uses 5 percent of the water a steam cleaner uses, therefore carpet dries in one hour (Steam cleaners use approx 40 gallons—Oxi Fresh uses approximately 2). Molds and mildews have no environment in which to thrive.

2. Uses Energy Efficiency: No running vehicles, (which can run throughout an entire cleaning job), which cause pollution. No doors to home left open to let cool air into or warm air out of the home, as well.Practices Recycling: The business uses recyclable bottles and packaging, and all franchise owners are required to recycle their products after use.

Host a Paper Shredding Party – According to the JK folks, you’d be blown away at how much paper is sitting around the average person’s house. Think about your own house – how many stacks of old schoolwork, junk mail and bills are just sitting around the house. Although we all mean to recycle these items, they can often get thrown in the wrong bin in a frenzy of cleaning chaos. That’s why making a fun group activity aimed at recycling, like a paper shredding party can prevent any possible paper mishaps.
