New program will test and recognize top performers

December 8, 2009

To promote cleaning products that are both green and effective, the International Executive Housekeepers Association and the University of Massachusetts Lowell’s Toxics Use Reduction Institute have launched a program to test and validate high performance products.

The fee-based program will test soil removal efficacy of hard-surface cleaning products-both those certified as green by third-party organizations such as Green Seal, EcoLogo, and EcoForm, as well as products with green attributes-and recognize products that perform well in standard and customized cleaning tests.
