Additional documentation to support the submission:

"I can estimate that in our cleaners right now 70% are Green Seal certified products but the good news is that our daily cleaners 90% are Green Seal Certified. I don’t have a total cost for cleaning supplies but it represents around 60% of our supplies budget that is close to $24K.

On paper products we meet the standards from Green Seal. I think on this area we are around the 92% mark; with the exception of our seat covers everything else meets. The estimated annual cost is around 75K. if you want more accurate numbers I’ll have to review our last year of supplies but I don’t think I can do that soon." - Javier
