This credit was marked as Not Applicable for the following reason:

The UCSB Campus integrated green cleaning as a standard many years ago. We were given the GREEN, CLEAN AWARD prestigious Grand Award in 2008 recognizing green cleaning practices as part of a contest sponsored by American School & University (AS&U) magazine, The Green Cleaning Network, and the Healthy Schools Campaign. The award was presented at the annual Green Clean Schools National Summit in Washington, D.C., and the campus was featured in AS&U magazine’s December edition.

UCSB Low Environmental Impact Cleaning Policy ensures that all buildings on campus are cleaned with products that meet Green Seal 37 certification, i.e., which contain low or no volatile organic compounds.
