Calgary, a place where over a million people are currently living, is one of Canada’s most modern cities and as such is a city where a wealth of environmentally-friendly ideas and initiatives are housed. Calgary and its surrounding communities have demonstrated their dedicated to eco-conscious programs in a variety of ways. Everything from the first solar-powered community in Okotoks to proposing population caps on various parts of the city.
This is why when it comes to cleaning the carpet Calgarians look to environmentally conscious cleaning solutions. Companies that, for starters, use organic or biodegradable cleaning agents to clean the carpets with as opposed to harmful chemicals that not only damage the environment but also have deleterious effects on the health and well being of the people living in the home.
Another way that Calgary carpet cleaning companies can be more environmentally friendly is by safely disposing of the dirty water that is collected during any given carpet cleaning job. Some cleaners simply dump their dirty water into the Calgary sewage system, which can result in pollutants being distributed through Calgary’s water system, causing illness. An eco-friendly service ensures this never happens by safely and responsibly disposing of the water.
Cleaners that demonstrate their care for the environment usually have access to the latest technology and equipment for their carpet cleaning service, as some of the latest equipment is equipment that makes the job safer and healthier for you and your family.
When it comes to carpet cleaning, Calgary is a contemporary market that demands environmentally responsible solutions. If you live in Calgary, chances are you’ll be able to find an eco-friendly cleaner near you. It’s just something you can look for in your next carpet cleaner.
Chevron is Guilty

A court in Ecuador has found Chevron guilty of massive environmental pollution and human rights violations in the Amazon, and has ordered the company to pay billion to clean it up. But Chevron has vowed to appeal the decision, and clearly plans to stall indefinitely, hoping never to pay its due. So the Change Chevron team got together with our friends and allies at Amazon Watch, Greenpeace, Global Exchange, and Communities for a Better Environment (of Richmond, CA) headed down to Chevron’s HQ in San Ramon, CA, and delivered a message to the company: Chevron was found guilty because the company is guilty. Time to accept responsibility and clean up the oily mess in Ecuador!
