Cleaning for Healthy Schools Toolkit

Posted by on October 6, 2008

Interested in learning more about healthier cleaning practices for schools and child care facilities? Want to protect the health of children, teachers, custodial staff, and other building staff? Then check out INFORM’s “Clean for Health” project at

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.

Toolkit Webinars are also available
