A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn (i.e. one-year time period or representative sample):

Seattle Central recently switched to a local company for janitorial paper products that offers regionally manufactured paper products that are almost entirely Green Seal certified. This data represents from Jan. 1-June 30, 2017 and is a great sample for current janitorial paper product purchase behavior.

We cannot easily calculate janitorial cleaning products at this time. We recently used several vendors for cleaning supplies, but are transitioning to one vendor who will hopefully be able to provide accurate data.
