Is Your Kid’s School Using Toxic Cleaning Products?

Maryland’s “school green cleaning” law requires schools to buy less toxic cleaning supplies.

Many families are switching to less toxic cleaning products to improve indoor air quality and cut exposure to some nasty and untested chemical. Is your child’s school using toxic cleaners?  The answer is most likely. The good news is that with help from the Maryland Environmental Health Network (MdEHN), a recent Maryland ‘school green cleaning’ law is coming to fruition. Though it may seem simple to pass a law and swap out some cleaners, it’s not that easy. The devil’s in the details.
