FROM KINDERGARTEN TO COLLEGE, YOU WANT YOUR SCHOOLS TO BE HEALTHY AND SAFE

Green Seal® can help.

 

Cleaning is essential to protecting health. Unfortunately, cleaning products often contain harmful, flammable, or carcinogenic chemicals and asthmagens – sometimes even when they are advertised as “green” or “natural.”

Younger, developing bodies can be extra vulnerable to threats from toxic chemicals and polluted indoor air. Greener education settings can mean fewer sick days, lower maintenance costs, and safer environments for students and staff.

For decades, Green Seal has been a vital resource for school districts, colleges, and universities across the country to transform their campuses into cleaner, healthier places to live, learn and play.

Purchasing greener products and implementing a green cleaning program in your school can have the following benefits:


Improved Indoor Air Quality

Less dust
Fewer allergens
Strict VOC limits


Reduced Incidents of Illness

Reduction in reported illnesses
Fewer reported doctor visits
Fewer days absent
