Green Cleaning Schools Act Introduced to IL Legislature

February 23rd, 2007 by

The Healthy Schools Campaign has introduced House Bill 895 (Green Cleaning Schools Act) to the Illinois legislature. This bill would require the creation and regular ammendment of guidelines and specifications for environmentally friendly cleaning and maintenance products for school facilities, and would also require the establishment of green cleaning policies at both public and private schools in Illinois following implementation of the guidelines. See the Healthy Schools Campaign Blog entry related to this action, and continue to monitor their blog for updates.

    Any updates on this legislation? I find it hard to believe that schools across the nation aren’t required to use green cleaning.

    The Green Cleaning Schools Act became effective on August 13, 2007. See http://www.standingupforillinois.org/green/school_cleaning.php for more information, including the text of the act and the list of qualified supplies.
