magic book with green plant growing out of it

Healthy Schools Campaign, a non-profit organization for the advancement of healthy school environments, announced four new members of their Green Clean Schools Steering Committee (formerly known as the GCS Leadership Council).

The Green Clean Schools Steering Committee is comprised of 12 dedicated facility cleaning managers from schools and universities across the country who work with award-winning, pioneering green cleaning programs. These on-the-ground green cleaning leaders have not only helped create healthier and safer educational facilities for their communities, but also they demonstrate a commitment to leading their peers and galvanizing the green cleaning movement.

Members of the GCS Steering Committee volunteer their time to provide valuable input to help Healthy Schools Campaign keep guidelines up to date, present case studies and workshops at our Green Clean Schools events and are available to mentor other managers and personnel who are interested in taking their own green cleaning programs further.
