Quoting From Cleaning Management Magazine, “worldwide, over 200 (repeat 200) companies, organizations and groups offer third party green cleaning certification ……..”
CIMS – ISSA’s Cleaning Industry Management Standard
Green Seal Inc.
USGBC – the US Green Building Council
USEPA – the EPA’s “Design for the Environment”
GEI – Greenguard Environmental Institute
CRI – The Carpet and Rug Institute’s Seal of Approval program.
(and 194 plus others – too numerous to mention)
We’re currently standardized on vacuums that are CRI certified and I’ve talked at length in other posts about the “greenness” of the commercial cleaning chemicals and procedures our janitors use.
