With the state of the environment as it currently is, there has never been a better time to contemplate whether or not the methods currently in use to clean floors are the best choice for the environment. Temples pride, the creator of the reusable and washable Dredge microfiber mop kit, revealed the key elements to microfiber mopping that make it the greenest option there is when it comes to mopping the floor and doing it in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Some of the key elements they found are as follows,
Due to microfiber’s unique bacterial removal properties, you can completely avoid harsh chemicals and stick to simple soap which, according to the School of Medicine at the University of California, kills bacteria and viruses. This equates to fewer and less dangerous chemicals being washed down the drain and potentially into the waterways.
Microfiber saves water by using up to 95% less than traditional mopping methods.
The pads are not single-use wipes that end up in a landfill. Microfiber mop pads are machine washable and can be washed over 500 times allowing them to last for years to come.
“If I had to choose the one reason why I believe microfiber to be an environmentally friendly mopping method then I would choose the fact that microfiber mops drastically reduce the number of chemicals that end up being washed down the drain,” said Brian from Temples Pride, the creator of the Dredge microfiber mop. “The problem is that water treatment plants are not able to remove all the chemicals from the wastewater. There are 3 in particular that are causing some serious problems, nitrogen, phosphorus, and ammonia. These three chemicals are basically fertilizers and are responsible for the algal blooms that are wreaking havoc across our waterways. These blooms completely take over, deplete oxygen and thereby kill off everything else living in the water.”
Temples Pride was founded in 2015 with a mission to provide an environmentally friendly & effective microfiber floor mopping system. To further support their mission, they are dedicated to reducing their environmental impact by helping to protect critical forest habitat. For every mop that they sell, they plant 1 tree.
