Harmful products disguised with green ratings
Recently, we at Forte learned that window cleaner (that ubiquitous blue liquid) can be dangerous when aerosolized, or sprayed in an enclosed environment. Who doesn’t spray window cleaner?! This led us to look closely at many of the products we use daily with an eye to toxicity levels.
Not only do we strive to keep our workforce safe and healthy, but we also work to protect the environment. At Forte, we have a vested interest in making the change to GREEN products. However, through careful research, we’ve found that most green products are not green at all! A simple online search revealed that many products labeled as green should read “sorta greenish” due to only slightly lower levels of harmful chemical additives.
Recently we started a trial of some truly excellent, truly GREEN products. Initial results are fantastic, and we will be working toward moving our workforce over to these better, safer products. We are committed to this noble goal, and plan to educate and inspire our workforce to do the same.
