An abundance of product offerings have made chemical selection a challenge for custodial staffs, especially when you add green certification requirements to the mix. Thankfully, third party certifications such as those from Green Seal, EcoLogo, GreenGuard and the EPA's Design for the Environment program have made identifying green certified chemicals simple.

Organizations such as those listed above require that chemicals go through stringent testing prior to receiving certification. In some cases, false claims can also be identified through simple research on certifying websites. This reality makes product selection simpler for purchasers.
