State proposes requiring green cleaning in all schools

Posted on February 28th, 2012 No Comments

Two members of the Tennessee Congress have introduced bills that would require green cleaning in all schools in the state by introducing a “Green Cleaning Schools Act.” The bills propose having the Department of Education enforce green cleaning policies, such as requiring the use of only environmentally friendly cleaning products and processes.

Legislators created the two bills after a Department of Education study into the benefits of green cleaning at schools proved successful. An elementary school and middle school in the state compared their cleaning practices from before the study to after the study. The middle school found that they saved 17 percent in cleaning costs with green cleaning, while the elementary school saved 8 percent. However, officials said that the elementary school’s numbers were slightly skewed, and their savings were actually closer to 15 percent.
