According to an article from the Grand Rapids Business Journal, WMU joins Harvard, University of Maryland and University of Virginia as schools that have earned the Green Seal.

From the GRBJ: "The custodial department incorporated several changes into their sustainability practices: using aqueous ozone, a water-based cleaning system; changing floor-care procedures, which eliminated the use of floor stripper and finish; and using backpack vacuums, which remove more particles in the air due to the higher level of filtration; and more."
