The Green Cleaning Program

History

The Green Cleaning Program was first adopted, for the entire campus, in 2004. Since then, the Green Cleaning Program has become a gradual process that is implemented as far as the budgetary restrictions will allow. Some of the changes include:

  • cleaning supplies

    The purchase of green cleaning chemicals that are either Green Seal or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified.

  • The purchase of reusable microfiber cloths and mops that replace disposable cloths or paper towels in all but a few unique circumstances.

  • Entryway floor mats made of recycled materials are used to reduce the tracking of mud, dirt, and other substances that can increase the need for cleaning.

  • cleaning supplies

    The purchase of green cleaning equipment certified for efficiency and quality.

  • Student residents are provided with Green Seal glass cleaner and disinfectant to use for the cleaning of their designated living space.

  • The purchase of toilet tissue and hand paper towels that meet EPA standards for post consumer waste recycled content.
    • Paper Towels- 40%
    • Bathroom Tissue- 20%
