Cleaning products are necessary for maintaining attractive and healthy conditions in
the home and workplace. In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits of cleaning,

Green and safe gardens

Pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers are all commonly used in gardens and parks. While many of these products have lower toxicity than they did in the past, they can still have negative effects on the environment and risk to our health.

Switching to natural methods of pest and weed control and taking steps like making your own compost can have a really positive impact on your garden or park’s ecosystem.
