EPA’s Safer Choice for Green Cleaning in Schools

What is green cleaning and why is it important?

Healthy school environments are essential to fostering supportive learning conditions for students. Here at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we strive to promote best practices in cleaning and maintenance that can contribute to healthier school environments for students, staff, and visitors. Instituting a green cleaning program can help you maintain a healthy and safe learning environment, which is important for attendance and academic performance. As you know, healthy kids learn better.
