Why Go Green

Green cleaners on this site:

  • Have safer ingredients. Cleaning products often contain a variety of hazardous ingredients, including quaternary ammonium compounds, alkylphenol ethoxylates, 2-butoxyethanol, glycol ethers, and ethanolamine. These pose health hazards to workers and building occupants, as well as environmental hazards downstream.
  • Reduce waste, by emphasizing recycled and/or recyclable packaging.
  • Are sold as concentrates whenever possible, which means that shipping weight is 1/64 – 1/256 that of ready to use products - dramatically reducing fuel requirements for shipping.
  • Often use dilution systems to prevent exposure to concentrated products.
  • Cost roughly equivalent to conventional products (see our report).

Criteria for Metal Cleaners

Must be certified under Green Seal GS‐53 or recognized under US EPA Safer Choice.
