US based, EnvirodesicTM Certification identifies a growing family of cleaner products, healthier buildings, and expert services that promote "Maximum Indoor Air QualityTM and sustainability. TheEnvirodesicTM certification mark is licensed to qualified builders, manufacturers and service-providers whose buildings, products and services meet stringent standards for healthy indoor environments. The Envirodesic team also helps manufacturers develop products which are ecologically sustainable. The EnvirodesicTM Certification Program is administered by Small & Rubin Ltd. and has access to international experts in low-pollution design, toxicology, medicine, indoor air quality, marketing and related areas. One of the areas that EnvirodesicTM has been involved in from our inception is cleaning. The world's cleaning industries have been responsible over the last many decades for a great deal of pollution both indoors in our homes, workplaces and public buildings, and outdoors in our waterways. The industry has been obsessed with creating ever-more-potent chemistry to kill pathogens on environmental surfaces, and has conditioned the public to think that they require products that will kill everything they touch, and that will add a variety of refreshing odors to indoor air. Over the past decade we have been privileged to work with an individual who has been at the forefront of change in the cleaning industry and who has consistently led the movement to greener cleaners in the broadest, most sustainable and healthiest sense of the word. Michael Rochon of Cogent Environmental Solutions, a Canadian company, has been among the first to recognize that everything we clean with must be compatible even with the most sensitive of human beings. He has sounded the alert that the basic paradigms of cleaning and disinfecting need to be re-examined worldwide, and he has proven his point by developing series after series of products that conform to new and more sustainable principles.
