Gator Cleaning Solutions Celebrates Earth Day by Participating in the Great American Cleanup
 
 

Gator Cleaning Solutions is excited to announce that they will be participating in this year's Great American Cleanup! The Great American Cleanup is a national event hosted locally by Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful in which an anticipated 1,200 Keep America Beautiful affiliates and participating organizations nationwide rally an estimated 3.5 million volunteers to hold litter and debris cleanups on public lands and waterways, host recycling drives, spruce up community amenities like parks and playgrounds, remove graffiti, plant trees and community gardens, and host many more activities designed to improve the living environments that we all call "home."


In 2011, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful recorded more than 10,400 volunteers who picked up 110,913 pounds of trash and recyclables from March through May.

 

The main event takes place Saturday, April 21, 2012. Projects include roadside cleanups, invasive removals, painting, and planting. Cleanup events are going to be taking place all over the Bay Area.

Is your building green? Here are the guidelines for becoming a LEED building developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

 

The U.S. Green Building Council first created the LEED program in 1998 and it has been evolving and growing rapidly ever since. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.

 

In LEED 2009 there are 100 possible base points distributed across five major credit categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, plus an additional 6 points for Innovation in Design and an additional 4 points for Regional Priority. Buildings can qualify for four levels of certification:

 

Certified: 40-49 points
 

Silver: 50-59 points
 

Gold: 60-79 points
 

Platinum: 80 points and above


Did you know that green cleaning practices can help earn up to 17 points towards certification in several categories, while promoting a healthier indoor air quality reducing the likelihood of asthma, certain types of cancer and a number of other diseases?

Green Clean Tip of the Month 
Leaf One 
Safe Green Carpet Spot Treatment!
 
As we mentioned above, April is celebrated as the Green Month! In this installment of our Green Clean Tip of the Month, we are going to show you tips on how to make a safe, green carpet spot treatment.
 
We have two do-it-yourself carpet spot treatments. The first solution includes just two simple ingredients, water and dish detergent. Take 1 tablespoon of dish detergent and add it to 1 cup of warm water. Mix the dish detergent and water together in a spray bottle to create an effective and green carpet spot treatment.
 
The second solution also includes just two simple ingredients that you have at home. Start by taking 1/3 cup of vinegar and add 2/3 cup of water. Again, mix these two ingredients together in a spray bottle for easy distribution.
 
Note that these two solutions are best used as spot treatments!
 
To see how well these solutions work, click here and watch our recent eHow video! We hope you find the above tip useful, let us know if you try one, we love to hear success stories!
