Healthy Green Purchasing for Asthma Prevention

A policy guidebook for schools and districts

Asthma impacts one in twelve children in the United States and is a leading contributor to student absenteeism. Chronic illnesses like asthma may even increase students’ risk of impacts from COVID-19. Purchasing environmentally healthier cleaning products, filters, furniture and rugs, and markers and paints can reduce a significant number of irritants and allergens that contribute to asthma symptoms in school settings.

The Healthy Green Purchasing for Asthma Prevention Guidebook helps schools meet the health needs of students, families, and school staff with environmentally preferred products. The guide serves as a resource for all who care about healthy purchasing for asthma prevention at the school level.
