Greener Cleaning Playbook

The Greener Cleaning Playbook is designed to help sports facilities reduce the health and environmental threats associated with cleaning sports venues.

Beyond protecting health, the cleaning industry uses significant quantities of chemicals, paper products, cleaning equipment, plastic liners for waste receptacles, and other supplies. While these supplies are important to protect health, sport facilities can further reduce health and environmental impacts by selecting high-performing environmentally preferable products, which are often cost-competitive.

Furthermore, the cleaning industry employs about 4.5 million workers in the U.S. and has one of the highest rates of injury compared with other industries. Many of these injuries or other impacts on worker health are avoidable. Greener cleaning can help reduce those injuries. And converting to a greener cleaning program can offer sponsorship opportunities while providing an opportunity to educate fans about environmentally preferable cleaning products.
