The Cambridge School

St. Louis, MO – June 1, 2009 - The Cambridge School Focuses on Improving Health for Attendees, Raises Eco Awareness

As the managing owner of The Cambridge School, children’s health is an issue that Perry Morton takes seriously. Morton knows that a few small changes can result in big improvements when it comes to the health of the children attending the school. So it is no surprise that when he started researching alternative cleaning methods for the school he uncovered a new way of thinking.

The Cambridge School is an eco-friendly, full-day educational child care program for working parents with children aged six weeks through six years. The school promises to provide each child with a safe, clean, and nurturing environment in which they can grow and learn at their own pace.

In all schools and day care centers, state regulations call for the use of chlorine bleach and water to clean and sanitize schools and public spaces and the standard cleaning (BERL) measurements are determined to be effective in killing germs while being nontoxic to children and safe to be used in child care areas. The Cambridge School administration and the school’s nurse test the chlorine level of the sanitizing solutions daily.

However, Morton began to question the current chlorine-based products for all cleaning applications and wondered if they are actually the healthiest for the children enrolled in the school. The school, located in a brand new, energy-efficient building, is air-tight and in this environment chlorine-based cleaners often leave toxic fumes which are harmful to children. Morton’s research has also revealed possible health risks for children on the playground with traditional fertilizers and materials used in landscaping.

“These days, homes and commercial buildings are built so efficiently and air-tight that the fumes released by chlorine-based products are not easily dispersed and can become toxic when not used correctly,” says Morton. “My research has led me to many organic-based alternatives to use indoors and outdoors that provide improved health conditions for our students and peace of mind for parents. The benefits of cleaner indoor air quality and improved outdoor environment have been linked to lower asthma rates, fewer allergies, and reduced absenteeism.”

The challenge for Morton has been finding state-approved replacement products that kill bacteria as effectively as chlorine-based cleaners. The school continues to utilize a three-sink process for sanitizing bottles, toys, etc. but has found alternative methods for cleaning the floors and glass surfaces and has also discovered state-approved alternatives that are made from plant and mineral-based biodegradable ingredients.

Morton has had success employing new methods outside the school as well. He works with the St. Louis lawn and landscape experts at Go Green! to make the playground a safer place. With the help of Go Green! and the company’s commitment to 100 percent carbon-free emissions in lawn care, the Cambridge School has converted to organic-based fertilizers that are undisturbed by activity on the playground and uses Rubberific 100 percent recycled landscaping as a play surface under the jungle gyms and activity areas.

“Eco-friendly environments have superior air quality which significantly reduces students and teachers exposure to chemicals and environmental toxins, said Morton. ““If children aren’t well fed or don’t feel well, they can’t learn. Not only do these products and methods make the school a safer place for the children in our care, we are providing a new generation with a no-nonsense look and health – personal and environmental.”
