Eco vacuum cleaners
At Green Mop, we are always aware of the impact our actions have on the environment. One area to consider is what vacuum cleaners we use. These appliances are not always as eco-friendly or ethical as we’d like. Here, we will explore some of the ways you can make your vacuum cleaning routine more environmentally friendly and ethical.
1. Choose a vacuum cleaner with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter.
HEPA filters are designed to trap small particles of dust, pollen, and other allergens, making them an excellent choice for those with allergies or asthma. Not only do these filters improve the air quality, but they also reduce the amount of dust and dirt released back into the environment.
2. Look for a vacuum cleaner made from recycled materials.
Many vacuum cleaners are made from non-renewable resources such as plastic and metal. However, some companies are now producing vacuums made from recycled materials such as recycled plastic. These vacuum cleaners are just as effective as those made from new materials but have a much smaller environmental impact.
3. Choose a vacuum cleaner with a low power consumption.
Vacuum cleaners can use a lot of energy, so choosing one with a low power consumption can make a significant difference to our carbon footprint. Look for a vacuum cleaner with an A+ energy rating to ensure it uses as little energy as possible.
4. Opt for a cordless vacuum cleaner.
Cordless vacuum cleaners are becoming increasingly popular as they are more convenient and easier to use than corded models. They are also more environmentally friendly as they use rechargeable batteries, reducing the amount of disposable batteries that end up in landfill.
5. Support companies with ethical policies.
When choosing a vacuum cleaner, it is important to consider the company behind the product. Look for companies that have ethical policies such as fair trade and sustainable production. By supporting these companies, you can ensure that your purchase has a positive impact on people and the planet.
6. Vacuums that are built to last
It’s important that electrical machinery can have a long life. Something is reliable and that can be repaired when needed
We love a Numatic or Henry vacuum. They are simple and well built. And they are easy and cost effective to repair and replace parts. The company have good ethical and sustainable values too.
