Green Cleaning Products in All VT Schools

by Philip Baruth

For the instant gratification types among you, we offer this: this afternoon the Senate will pass a bill mandating that schools use green cleaning products in their daily maintenance, pulling pretty much all the toxic chemicals out of Vermont kids’ school-time hours. And then it will head straight to the Governor for signature. Boom. Done. Why so fast? Actually, it’s a bill we worked like dogs on last year in Senate Education, a bill that hit a concealed snag in the final days of the session, but is now risen. So we got that going for us.

Which, as Bill Murray once put it, is nice.
