For all of housekeeping operations, 85% of chemicals used are Green Seal certified. A Green Seal certified product’s “environmental standards are based on its reduced human and aquatic toxicity and reduced smog production potential.“ These products are non-toxic, non-combustible or corrosive, and do not contain phosphates, chlorine bleach, carcinogens, ozone depleting compounds, or butoxyethanol.
Additionally, housekeeping staff uses Kimberly Clark, a supplied that provides single roll toilet tissue comprised of bamboo and wheat. As a result, this product can be grown within a calendar year as primary material, making for a very sustainable product. As new products like this (paper towels, large toilet rolls, etc.) become available from Kimberly-Clark, Xavier plans to purchase those as well.
