Stephen Ashkin recently met with leaders involved in the design, construction and upkeep of Chicago's public schools and state and local offices to discuss green cleaning and the role of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED-EB (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings) Program.

Asthma in children is more serious in Chicago than in any other city in the United States, according to a statement by AlturaSolutions Communications. Ashkin's firm specializes in the “greening” the cleaning process – using environmentally preferable cleaning products to improve the health of buildings and the people in them.
