The Clean Space recognise that cleaners can be amongst some of the most financially vulnerable workers in society, are exposed to toxic chemicals and unsafe work conditions regularly, and are often employed under dubious contracts, or no contracts at all. The Clean Space work to change all this: paying its staff a Real Living Wage, using environmentally-conscious cleaning products, and investing in groundbreaking, science-based cleaning methods that don’t harm People, the Environment or Animals.
What makes The Clean Space so sustainable?
The Clean Space has a wide range of sustainable initiatives that further the brand’s ethical status. The brand pursues scientific research in cleaning, using probiotic technology and natural, vegan products in some of its cleaning packages.
The Clean Space is a Recognised Living Wage Service Provider. The Real Living Wage is different from the National Living Wage. The Clean Space recognises that many workers employed in the cleaning industry are not always paid or contracted fairly. The Real Living Wage takes into account the rising cost of essentials, and financially difficult times of the year, such as Christmas.
This cleaning brand is certified by a ISO 14001, and also complies with the voluntary EU Green Public Procurement criteria. (ISO 14001 is the most popular Environmental Management System internationally.) These two accreditations mean that The Clean Space cleans to a high standard, without compromising the health of the planet or people.
