For restaurants to go green, they have to pay attention to the blue—water that is. Affixing an inexpensive faucet accessory that adds air to the water stream can drastically cut water consumption.
|Standard Faucet Aerator:||$6.75|
|One Touch On / Off Aerators:||$8.95|
|Swivel Aerator with On / Off Lever:||$10.12|
|High-Performance Vacuum Flow Aerator:||$24.95|
1. Hooking it Up
The faucet accessory screws onto the end of the water spout.
2. Adding Air
As water flows through the aerator’s weave, air replaces the spaces where the strainer is holding water back.
3. Saving Water
What flows into the sink is a single column of water and air mixed, reducing water usage up to 75 percent.
Green Cleaning Products
Today’s green cleaning products are proving that nontoxicity, biodegradability, and efficiency do not have to be mutually exclusive. Their naturally derived ingredients are able to be effective and environmentally friendly.
|1 gallon of Ramsey Power Bolt:||$15.24|
|1 gallon of Simple Green:||$16.48|
|1 gallon of Kleenzol:||$21.88|
|1 gallon of X14 Cleaner Degreaser:||$28.16|
1. Attacking Dirt
Surface-active agents use water as a catalyst to break down large globs of dirt, creating small microscopic droplets called micelles.
2. Dividing Droplets
The micelles are made smaller and more numerous through micro-particulate-fractionalization (MPF).
3. Increasing Surface Area
The new smaller micelles provide increased surface area, which allows for the water and active agents to better attack the dirt.
4. Dissolving into Water
The continually attacked micelles dissolve into the water within the cleaning solution.
5. Resulting Efficiency
The dirt, oil, or fat is wiped away easily.
