Green Cleaning Definition
Green Cleaning is defined as cleaning to protect health without
harming the environment. A Green Cleaning program goes beyond chemical and equipment
choices. It includes policies, procedures, training and shared responsibility efforts
that minimize the impact of cleaning materials on the health of building occupants
and protect the environment as a whole.
Current products, processes and procedures arenít necessarily bad,
but newer technologies and processes make it possible to clean effectively, efficiently,
and with less impact on health and the environment. And to be clear, green cleaning is
more than switching a few products; itís about effective cleaning to create healthier
buildings and at the same time reduce environmental impacts.
