Green cleaning products have been offered by ERC since the company was started over 90 years ago.. Today, ERC recycles over 3 MILLION LBS of textiles annually! ERC currently offers numerous Green cleaning products and Green cleaning supplies from recycled textiles such as rags and wiping cloths, to microfiber towels and microfiber mops that require no chemicals for effective cleaning. We also offer newer eco-friendly products including paper wipers made of post-consumer materials and presaturated cleaning wipes that are biodegradable. Our Green cleaning products also help facilities earn credits towards the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System for building cleaning and maintenance.

ERC offers a complete line of absorbent, low cost cotton rags for all your wiping applications. Many of our low cost rags are recycled rags made from used clothing, commercial laundry discards and textile mill ends that would otherwise end up in the landfill. By converting these materials into rags, the life of the textiles has been extended, allowing them to last much longer before they are discarded. Purchasing wiping rags made from recycled materials has many benefits vs. buying manufactured rags. Recycled rags use no water or energy to create. The creation of paper wipes uses large amounts of water and energy to manufacture and required a lot of deforestation. Low cost rags made from recycled textiles are also a much greener choice when compared to shop towels, once again using no water or energy. One of the most important Green benefits of recycled rags vs. manufactured is that they help to reduce the world’s carbon footprint. All of ERC’s rags are clean and ready to be used right out of the box! ERC is also a proud member of S.M.A.R.T. (Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association).

ERC’s microfiber cloths and microfiber mops make a great addition to any Green cleaning program. Microfiber consists of millions of tiny hooks that attract, absorb and remove dirt, dust and bacteria from surfaces without the use of chemicals! Eliminating chemical use is better for the environment and the air quality at facilities being cleaned. Microfiber is lightweight, allowing lots to fit into each wash cycle. Microfiber also equates to energy savings as they should be washed in ONLY cool water and tumble dried. Microfiber products have a longer life span than traditional cloths and mops, helping to further reduce turnover and waste.
Microfiber products also help facilities earn credits towards the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System for building cleaning and maintenance.
