What is Green Cleaning? The federal government has defined green cleaning as “products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products and services that serve the same purpose.” This definition is known as Executive Order 13101 and was instituted to protect the health of our planet as well as its inhabitants.
