Greening The Cleaning

Woods Hole Inn Implements Greening The Cleaning

Woods Hole, MA July 2012 – The Woods Hole Inn announced it’s continued efforts to “go green” for health and wellness.  The newly renovated facility at 28 Water Street recently began using Greening The Cleaning® products from The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center. The plant-based, biodegradable products are more environmentally responsible and less toxic than typical household cleaning chemicals. All profits from the institutional products go back to The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® for supporting education and research to identify, control, and ultimately prevent toxic exposures in the environment that threaten our children's health.


“These efforts, including our Greening The Cleaning® program, change the way we think about the environment around us," said Deirdre Imus, founder and President of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®, a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit.

The Woods Hole Inn of Woods Hole, Massachusetts found Greening The Cleaning® products through some friends at Cape Island Green program.  We were looking to continue our efforts as a green establishment with environmentally friendly cleaning products that work well.  We love using these products in our renovated 14 bedroom inn not only because they offer safe, natural products that work great but also because we feel that the focus of the company is so important and we really respect that.  Guest’s love the fact that they can stay at the Woods Hole Inn and know that we work to high extremes to do our efforts to save the environment. We are an eco-destination. Come stay GREEN by the deep BLUE sea.

The Woods Hole Inn joins over 400 schools, healthcare facilities, government agencies and businesses that have adopted the Greening the Cleaning Program since its inception in 2001.
