Greening The Cleaning

Leading by example, the Environmental Health Center’s award-winning Greening The Cleaning® program eliminates, to the greatest extent possible, all cleaning agents containing hazardous ingredients and replaces them with naturally derived ingredients with the least level of toxicity. Since its inception in 2001, the program has been implemented by healthcare facilities, government authorities, businesses and schools around the country.

Greening the Cleaning®
From Ranch to Hospital to Home

In 1998, Deirdre and Don Imus founded The Imus Cattle Ranch for Kids with Cancer in Ribera, New Mexico. Deirdre is passionate about keeping this healing environment toxin-free. No junk food and no harsh chemical cleansers allowed! After seeing kids thrive at the ranch, she was inspired to bring this lifestyle to another healing place: the hospital. She worked with a team of experts at Hackensack University Medical Center to develop a line of cleaning products that are effective enough for leading hospitals, but safe enough for children’s playrooms. 
Greening The Cleaning® strives to eliminate all cleaning agents containing hazardous ingredients, and replace them with environmentally responsible, less toxic products.  We proudly disclose all of our ingredients.  GTC products are derived from renewable natural resources such as corn, palm kernel oil, fruits and other plant based resources.
