August 1, 2011

CINCINNATI — xpedx representatives provided information about green cleaning programs and supplies, answers on sustainability issues and advice to educational facility managers during the APPA Annual Conference and Exhibition, which was held July 16-18, according to a press release.

"Most educational institutions want to retain and grow their student population and one way they can differentiate themselves is by providing a healthy and safe campus environment," said Danielle Yarber, director of sales for Facility Solutions at xpedx.

"We have the expertise to help schools launch a sustainability program or make improvements to what they already have in place. In either case, adopting a sustainability program sends a message to students and their parents that the school considers environmental health and safety an important aspect of campus life," Yarber added.

The xpedx suite of sustainable solutions includes green cleaning consultation and access to green-cleaning products from the industry''s leading manufacturers, the release stated.

According to the release, in select markets, xpedx hosts free seminars to share the latest information on sustainability best practices with its customers.
