All campus bathrooms are making the switch to GOJO Green Certified Foam Hand Cleaner. The mild, biodegradable foam soap meets stringent standards for being environmentally responsible while still cleaning and sanitizing hands.
A switch to microfiber cleaning cloths and dust mops is resulting in cleaner surfaces using fewer chemicals and less water. The super-absorbent material makes it more effective at cleaning and removing soils and contaminants, allowing staff to use just enough cleaning agents to make the campus sparkle.
UA has gone clean and green, trading harsh chemicals for environmentally friendly cleaning products. Three-fourths of traditional cleaning supplies have been replaced with products developed for high performance, reduced environmental impact and enhanced safety. Staff has been trained in the best practices when it comes to cleaning and maintaining sustainable buildings.
While the expansive, grassy mall is a favorite spot for students to relax between classes, all that turf requires water. Starting in 2003, the UA made the switch to reclaimed water for sports fields and lawns. Reclaimed water allows the campus to remain green while reducing the impact on the environment.
