Friday's Ask the Experts: Researching green products

September 11, 2009
Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: I have been researching green cleaning custodial products (including equipment) over the last several months. Many companies are making claims about their green products. How do I distinguish and analyze which companies products are 1) Green; and 2) The best available? I have been reviewing products that are certified by Green Seal Inc. Your thoughts or suggestions would be helpful.
The answer:
One source you should include in your research is the OS1 Users Group, a non- profit organization. They are a world-class group of organizations who benchmark best practices (select products and systems) and compete with each other on cleaning excellence.
