Since the launch of the Green Clean Schools initiative in 2006, the movement for green cleaning in schools has grown significantly, with state-level legislation requiring green cleaning in schools, federal recognition of the importance of green cleaning, marketplace change and much more. The fourth edition of the Quick & Easy Guide outlines five steps for starting or enhancing a green cleaning program such as using green products and equipment, adopting new cleaning procedures and involving all school stakeholders in the process. The guide also includes an enhanced purchasing directory with hundreds of products that meet HSC’s environmental standards for schools.
