Green cleaning is the better option for our health and the environment, but as a natural cleaning product manufacturer, it can feel like an uphill battle at times.
Quality natural ingredients are expensive; third-party environmental and health standard compliance must always be considered, and; the market is ripe with products claiming to be better than they are.
So why do we do what we do? Because of our furry friend, Dusty.
AspenClean’s vision is for families to live in healthy homes and natural environments that aren’t threatened by harmful chemicals used in the cleaning industry.
As a natural cleaning services and products company, our mission is to provide the highest quality green cleaning services and products to create healthy, non-toxic homes that don’t threaten our surrounding environments.
Dusty joined the AspenClean team in 2014 and has since become an invaluable team member. He is the President of our Dog Department, assists with AspenClean HQ security and promotes health by advocating daily walks.
His most important role, however, is to remind the team that what we do is important. It’s all about keeping our families (even the furriest members) safe, and that it’s worth every effort!
Like many of our four-legged friends, Dusty is curious. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know what’s good for him!
Traditional floor cleaners, glass cleaners, bathroom cleaners and laundry detergents include some of the most harmful ingredients for pet health. Our job is to create alternatives that are formulated without things like chlorine or ammonia but are still effective enough to keep your home clean.
As the President of the Dog Department, Dusty champions support for animals of the community. He ensures that our product formulations and suppliers are cruelty-free and compliant with the Leaping Bunny Program’s certification conditions.
He even takes it upon himself to periodically inspect our ingredients lists (which are fully disclosed on each product) to check that all our ingredients are vegan.
Dusty is also passionate about lending a helping paw to the wider pet community through partnerships with organizations like BCSPCA.
Everyone in the office loves to chat to Dusty, which means he’s taken in a lot of cleaning wisdom over the years.
If you have a tricky cleaning dilemma, questions about our products, or need cleaning tips you can ask Dusty for advice on social media! Head to the AspenClean Facebook page or Instagram page and send us a direct message with your question. We’ll post questions (and keep your details anonymous), along with Dusty’s advice on social media and encourage our community to offer their advice too! #CleaningWithDusty.
