Non-Toxic & Biodegradable Cleaners
Non-toxic cleaning supplies do not contain chemicals in sufficient quantities to be injurious to human health. Biodegradable cleaners safely break down in nature and do not cause environmental issues in ground or surface water.
Recycled Content Paper Towels and Tissues
The acceptable range for paper towels and tissues that contain a percentage of recycled paper material is 10% to 100% for post-consumer recycled content and 20% to 100% for total recycled content (pre-consumer plus post-consumer). Recycled towels and tissues are environmentally preferable since they help to reduce waste, decrease pressure on forests and lessen energy, greenhouse gases and water and air emissions.
Recycled Content Garbage Cans and Liners
The acceptable range for garbage cans and liners that contain a percentage of recycled materials (plastic or metal) is 25% to 100% for total recycled content (pre-consumer plus post-consumer). Recycled garbage cans and liners are environmentally preferable because they help to reduce waste, decrease the need for new plastics or metals created from raw materials and lessen energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
HEPA Air Purifiers
Air purifiers help improve indoor air quality and reduce particulates that contribute to allergies and other human health issues.
