This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

Actual data was available for the Physical Facilities Department, which cleans approximately one-half of the campus's square footage. PFD's data showed an annual spend of $25,244, with $10,257 in Green Seal cleaning chemicals. Housing, Dining, Recreation and Business Services cleans the other half of campus. Data was not available for their spend, so it was estimated that they spend approximately the same total amount, and it was conservatively estimated that their Green Seal purchases are half of the amount of PFD's. We continue to fine tune these figures.
Only Green Seal's Institutional Cleaning Products (GS-34, GS-37, GS-40, GS-53) were included in the Green Seal figure.
