What is Green Cleaning?

Green cleaning can be defined as “effective cleaning that protects health without harming the environment.”Green Cleaning

The federal government first defined “green” and “environmentally preferred purchasing” as “…products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment  when compared with competing products and services that serve the same purpose” with Executive Order 13101 in 1998.

This executive order has subsequently been superseded since 2007 by Executive Order 13423, which places additional emphasis on issues of sustainability and also considers product life cycles.

A holistic approach to green cleaning will incorporate solutions that consider human health and environmental impacts in a way that thoughtfully addresses:
- products, equipment and tools
- processes and procedures
- commitment to continuous improvement

WAXIE offers GPS Green Partner Support for customers looking for a comprehensive approach to cleaning green.
