Americo Partners with Healthy Schools Campaign to Support Green Clean Schools
Americo Manufacturing Company is proud to announce its sponsorship of GreenCleanSchools.org, an important online resource that brings together information, tools and assessments to help schools implement healthy, environmentally responsible cleaning programs. Healthy Schools Campaign, a national school health advocacy and policy organization, presents GreenCleanSchools.org as a way to inform and empower stakeholders who can truly change the way schools clean. Not only is green cleaning good for the environment, it is healthier for students and school staff, and has proven to be a cost-effective and efficient practice that has been embraced by school facility managers and cleaning professionals across the country.
“The decision to support a well-respected organization, such as Healthy Schools Campaign, was an easy one. We share the same core values when it comes to education and promoting green products. In all that we do, we are conscious of the impact that our products have on the environment. We help our customers do the same by providing high quality sustainable everyday products, like our Full Cycle floor pads. Our floor pads are made from post-consumer waste and are formulated to biodegrade* in a fraction of the time that it takes conventional floor pads, once discarded into an active landfill. When consumers see our Full Cycle™ label, they will know they have a quality product while at the same time reducing mankind’s impact on the environment—and that’s a benefit to everyone,” said Leonard Shutzberg, Chief Executive Officer of Americo Manufacturing Company.
“Green Clean Schools is made possible because of strong partnerships, including our partnership with Americo Manufacturing Company,” said Mark Bishop, vice president of policy for Healthy Schools Campaign. “We applaud Americo for their commitment to green cleaning, and for the impact their support will have on the health of those who go to school every day to learn and to work.” To learn more, visit GreenCleanSchools.org.
*The actual rate of biodegradation of Americo’s Full Cycle pads, as well as the rate of all plastic materials in landfills, will be slower and will vary, depending upon actual landfill conditions. For more information on Full Cycle™ or to view ASTM D5511 test results visit www.AmericoFullCycle.com.
