Infection Control

A proper infection control strategy is important to an effective green cleaning program. Through education, hand hygiene, proper cleaning and THEN safer disinfecting products, schools can support health and the environment together.

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated Pest Management (IPM), similar to green cleaning, is an important strategy to minimize the use of potentially toxic chemicals in your school. Green cleaning and IPM work hand in hand in promoting healthier and more sustainable schools.

Green Laundry

Laundry is a crucial, yet often unnoticed, part of a school’s overall green cleaning program. Textiles from athletic jerseys to kitchen rags require regular laundering. The good news is that laundry care is the perfect opportunity for schools to reduce energy, water and chemical consumption.

Green Cleaning in School Food Service

In food service, as in all areas of a school, meeting stringent public health and sanitation requirements is a top priority. Health and safety should never be compromised. The following guidelines address specific green cleaning considerations related to food service in schools.

Step 5

Everyone plays a role in maintaining a healthy environment. This step describes ways that students, teachers, administrators, unions and contractors can share the responsibility.

Step 4
Adopt Green Cleaning Training + Procedures

Green cleaning procedure goals are to reduce health risks and minimize environmental impact. This step outlines how you can get your procedures to line up with those goals.

Step 3
Introduce Green Equipment + Supplies

Today’s tools can reduce chemical use, increase productivity and help decrease injuries. This offers guidance on making the right green equipment and supply choices.

Step 2
Identify Green Cleaning Products

This step is designed to take the guesswork out of evaluating products and help you identify those that meet high standards for effectiveness, health and safety.

Step 1
