Thanks to funding from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute, FRCOG and partners were able to create, print, and distribute a guide for food service professionals on how to prevent contamination of water and food through use of greener cleaning products. The guide was based on a survey of products in use in restaurants and school kitchens conducted by health agents across western Massachusetts.
