About Green Clean Schools

The new Green Clean Schools web portal is the place for all things green cleaning. It brings together practical information and easy-to-use resources from HSC’s multi-faceted strategy to support green, sustainable school cleaning programs nationwide.

Recommending green products—and so much more. Green Clean Schools is based in the knowledge that transforming cleaning in schools is about more than simply recommending green products. It’s about providing practical how-to advice but also about changing policy, recognizing success and especially about learning from the remarkable leaders who are making change in schools across the nation.

Building on a strong history. This website builds on the tremendous success of HSC’s Quick + Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools, first released in 2006. In addition to the Five Simple Steps to Green Cleaning popularized by the guide, this web portal highlights a strategic approach to policy change and the power of recognizing successful green programs.

Updated and expanded content. The updated and expanded content reflects current trends in cleaning and puts practical tools and resources for school decision-makers front and center. The site is easier to use, easier to access, and more comprehensive than ever before, with powerful tools for parents, teachers, administrators and cleaning professionals alike.

Our number one goal: encouraging schools to adopt green cleaning programs. We’re doing that by informing and engaging school decision-makers and influencers, creating a supportive policy environment, recognizing outstanding programs and building a marketplace that rewards product innovation and is easy for purchasers to navigate.

Thank you for being part of the movement for green cleaning in schools.
