E-M:/ Cleaning for Healthy Schools

You Are Invited
to the Premiere Presentations of the
Cleaning for Healthy Schools Toolkit
  • Did you know: 25% of chemicals in the cleaning products used in schools are toxic and contribute to poor indoor air quality and smog, and cancer, asthma, and other diseases?
  • Did you know that two states require schools to use green cleaning products?
The free, online Cleaning for Healthy Schools Toolkit will educate you about green cleaning. It can also be tailored to create state or local educational programs for agencies, education officials, workers, and parents and communities. The externally reviewed training tools are also ‘open-source’ and ‘industry-free’-- in short, a unique, comprehensive program to advance policy and practices that help safeguard child and adult health, reduce the use of toxic chemicals, cost-effectively improve cleaning, and improve school IAQ.   
(each Webinar is a separate session with different handouts; you must register for each one you wish to attend)
