Sustainable Adelphi


Green Seal Products

We’re making Adelphi a healthier community.

Green SealLocated in Washington, D.C., Green Seal, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to achieving a healthier environment. Green Seal works in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and promotes products that meet environmentally responsible criteria.

At Adelphi, we have made an effort to protect the environment on a daily basis and incorporate the protection of the environment into our lives by using only Green Seal Certified® products. These products are recycled from waste paper, newspapers, and magazines, have had the contaminants removed, and are safe for you and the environment.

The Facilities Department is also working in close conjunction with the Purchasing Department to ensure that the University uses “green” products wherever possible. Housekeeping switched to all environmentally friendly cleaning and paper products in 2005.
