CleanerSolutions- A New Database Helping Manufacturers Find Cleaner Alternatives for Surface Cleaners

Green Biz reports that,

"the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell has unveiled a new surface cleaning online database to help manufacturers find safer cleaning alternatives that perform as well as hazardous chemicals.

The database, called CleanerSolutions, is filled with over 10 years of performance testing results combined with health and environment indicators. The system helps companies understand how to choose alternatives so that overall risks to workers and the environment are reduced.

"The reason I developed the database was because I couldn’t imagine manufacturers taking the time to weed through mounds of data to find safer cleaning products," said Marshall. “If companies can view hard data on how safer industrial and janitorial products perform, then they are more likely to pilot test alternatives and replace the toxic chemicals they may be using,” he continued."
