Clean and Green: UMKC Housekeeping gets Makeover
Campus Facilities Management (CFM) at the University of Missouri-Kansas City has been taking efforts to reduce the school's carbon footprint. In addition to modifying lawnmowers and encouraging staff to use bicycles, CFM has adopted environmentally friendly cleaning products. The switchover has been in the works for almost three years. Crews have tried various cleaners, polishes and mats made from recycled material. Gradually, the crews began phasing out old products and adopting greener alternatives.
