Green Cleaning for Healthy Schools Toolkit Green Cleaning for Healthy Schools Toolkit


Keeping schools clean and cleanable and reducing air pollutants, chemical exposures, and asthma in schools are all critical to promoting attendance and learning. Green cleaning is a proven, cost-effective way to help address these issues. Currently, eleven states and the District of Columbia require or promote the use of green cleaning products in schools! You should too. The Toolkit contains free posters, two webinars, tip sheets, and checklists.

Finding healthy products can be confusing. This toolkit offers guidance in finding products with low emissions and low toxicity. These products promote better indoor air quality (IAQ) and reduce exposure to chemicals associated with long-term health problems, including asthma and cancer. The resources found here can help users identify false environmental marketing claims (greenwashing), find third-party certified products, and understand the cost benefits of healthy purchasing. Product types include safer disinfectants, office equipment and supplies, teaching supplies, and school supplies.
