Greening The Cleaning® Products
In 2001, HackensackUMC implemented the Greening The Cleaning® program to minimize the risks associated with exposure to traditional cleaning products for employees performing the vital role of protecting the health of our patients, staff and visitors. This program strives to eliminate all cleaning agents containing hazardous ingredients and replace them with less toxic alternatives.
The award-winning Greening The Cleaning® products deliver the maximum level of efficacy at the least level of toxicity. Greening The Cleaning® products are not formulated with ingredients that are known human carcinogens, teratogens or endocrine disruptors and are Triclosan free. Greening The Cleaning® products have been used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, schools, government agencies and businesses nationwide since 2001.
To the greatest extent possible, Greening The Cleaning® products contain naturally-occurring, plant and mineral-based ingredients.
Greening The Cleaning® products are never tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients.
100% of all profits from our Greening The Cleaning® products go to The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® for supporting the Greening The Cleaning® program in addition to funding education and research to identify, control and ultimately prevent toxic exposures in the environment that threaten our children’s health.
