We are working around the campus to decrease the number of potentially hazardous chemicals used in cleaning. Some initiatives in this area include:
Dining Services are increasingly using a line of more environmentally responsible cleaning products called EcoLogic
Purchase and deployment of 60 ActiveIon “Ionator” units which effectively clean and sanitize using ionized water instead of chemicals.
More than 60% of the cleaning agents used on campus are certified as “green”
Equipment is being replaced with newer versions that meet green criteria such as reduced water consumption, no or low chemical use, and HEPA filters on vacuums
Replacing black boards with white boards to reduce chalk dust and water consumption
