Over the years, some people have blurred the distinction between a clean environment and a sustainable environment. The fact that a cleaning product may have anti-bacterial properties does not necessarily mean that killing bacteria and leaving a clean environment promotes sustainability.
Unfortunately, since there are no legal requirements for manufacturers of cleaning products to disclose their ingredients in some countries, some of these products contain toxic chemicals that have damning consequences on the environment.
However, companies like Green Touches seek to make a difference by promoting a sustainable planet in the cleaning process.
Founded in 2015, Green Touches was born out of a mission and vision to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals in commercial and domestic cleaning, thereby creating a healthy living and working environment to pass on a sustainable and viable planet to future generations.
This Dubai-based company has embarked on a rare business model of putting health before profit, and being disruptors for change within the Facility Management industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the wider Middle Eastern region. They also incorporate the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their business strategy, which have become an integral part of Green Touches.
