Green Cleaning

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
