Ever wonder about the chemistry behind that activated water technology? Curious about the actual cost benefits of a comprehensive green cleaning program?

Our free webinar series can answer those questions and more. In each webinar, we team up with leaders in the field, including green cleaning experts, environmentally responsible vendors, school nurses and administrators of successful green cleaning programs to discuss green cleaning in detail. All registered participants are able to ask these experts their own questions, too!

Each spring and summer, we release a new series of webinars touching on hot topics in green cleaning, from the financial benefits to the teacher’s role. Webinars are designed to be helpful for all green cleaning advocates, including parents, school administrators, teachers, custodial staff and school nurses.
