The state buys a variety of cleaners such as bathroom cleaners, floor cleaners, disinfectants and degreasers. Given the wide selection of cleaners on the market, chemical composition is the key consideration for the protection of the environment and human health.

Green Contracts

Currently there is no green statewide commodity contract for this commodity.

To assist state departments with the identification of products that meet Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) criteria, the Department of General Services (DGS) EPP program has developed DGS purchasing standard(s).

DGS Purchasing Standards

DGS purchasing standards provide the minimum criteria purchases must meet to be considered EPP, aka “green”, by the state of California. They establish a mechanism for incorporating performance and environmental requirements that meet the state’s environmentally preferable goals, into procurement and policy. The following purchasing standard contains EPP criteria for janitorial cleaners.

Visit the California Prison Industry Authority Catalog to buy green janitorial cleaners.
