Orange County Interior Plant Service Goes Green!

Filed Under News And Articles · Tagged: , ,  

Here is what we at Personal Plant Service are doing to go more Green:

  1. We educate our clients on the benefits of plants, and created this website that will keep our commitment to education on going.
  2. All of our crew at the Personal Plant Service love plants and have them in our homes and our office, so we practice what we preach!
  3. We create our holiday’s gifts around giving our clients ideas in how they could be more green.

  4. We donate to and support Green Plants for Green Buildings.
  5. We are very careful in how we establish our routes and schedule our employees to conserve energy and gas. We have moved a lot of our service accounts to Bi-Monthly rather than weekly.
  6. We use  plant cleaners to keep our insects controlled, rather than using toxic chemicals. We do not use Pesticides!
  7. We use re-usable PAWS (felt cleaners for plants) and rags to clean our plants.
  8. We recycle everything we can!
  9. We use re-usable shopping bags when we do our shopping.
  10. We continue to search for and use products that are earth friendly.
  11. We  support our local Orange County Farmers Markets, and even grow some our own food!
  12. We switched out many of our lights to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's) As well as having a programmable thermostat and fans in the office.
