What is Green Cleaning?
Green Cleaning is a generic term used in the marketplace to describe cleaning that is environmentally conscious. The most broadly accepted definition of Green is laid out in Presidential Executive Order 13101 “products or services that have a lesser or reduced effect on health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose.” Green Cleaning is “effective cleaning to create healthier buildings and at the same time reduce environmental impacts.” The goal is to reduce “potentially negative exposures to both human health and the environment.”
