Greening The Cleaning® Goes International

gtc_din-group2_6-19-13new_cropHackensack, N.J., September 28, 2007 – Commercial-grade products from the award-winning Greening The Cleaning® program are now available to international commercial customers simply by contacting The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at imusenvironmentalhealth.org, or by calling 551-996-8071.
 
Greening The Cleaning® means eliminating to the greatest extent possible all cleaning agents containing hazardous ingredients and replacing them with environmentally responsible ingredients with the least level of toxicity. One hundred percent of all profits from the institutional products go to the Center for supporting education and research to identify, control and ultimately prevent toxic exposures in the environment that threaten our children's health. Household products are available to the U.S. market, in stores or by calling imusranchfoods.com at 1-888-284-4687. On the retail line, 100 percent of all profits go to the Imus Cattle Ranch for Kids with Cancer.
 
More than 300 healthcare facilities, government authorities, businesses and schools have implemented the program since 2001. Direct savings in cleaning costs have ranged from budget neutral to 75 percent, with typical savings on the order of 15 percent. The line includes floor care products, general-purpose cleaners, disinfectants, deodorizers, tube-and-tile cleaners and laundry products, with automatic restocking programs available. Commercial customers report that Greening The Cleaning® products work as well or better than existing cleaning agents.
 
The Environmental Health Center is part of Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, where the program originated. Both organizations have been recognized with several awards for their efforts.
 
The mission of the Environmental Health Center is to identify, control and ultimately prevent toxic exposures in the environment that threaten our children's health. The Environmental Health Center has advised hundreds of organizations including hospitals, schools, government agencies and major corporations on "green" materials and "sustainable" practices.
 
Deirdre Imus and the Environmental Health Center® have garnered numerous awards and achievements, including for the Greening The Cleaning® program. Recent efforts helped usher in “Green Cleaning” Executive Orders from governors in three states -- New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, as well as related legislation. These government initiatives direct state agencies and authorities to begin using less toxic cleaning products to help reduce exposure to toxic ingredients and improve indoor air quality.
