HSC Releases Second Edition of Quick & Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools
September 10, 2008 | Written By: Healthy Schools Campaign
We’re excited to announce the release of the second edition of The Quick & Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools and an expanded, re-designed GreenCleanSchools.org where you can access the complete guide online! We launched the guide on Monday at a press conference in Las Vegas at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN conference and trade show.
The energy in the room was remarkable – it’s amazing to see how much green cleaning in schools has grown in the two years since we released the first edition of the guide. There is a growing awareness – both in schools and in the cleaning industry – that green cleaning ultimately affects the health of everyone in a building, shaping student performance, staff attendance and the overall climate of a school.
We’ve had the benefit of working with 16 national education stakeholder organizations and 39 corporate leaders in developing and now distributing the guide. (This second edition comes after we worked with our sponsors and partners to distribute more than 70,000 copies of the first edition.)
The second edition includes new sections on sustainability, green cleaning for food service, integrated pest management, ongoing infection control, new technologies and more, plus an enhanced purchasing directory with more than 500 products that meet HSC’s environmental standards for schools.
Be sure to check out the expanded and re-designed GreenCleanSchools.org, where you can order your copy of the guide or access it online today!
