Mitchell Products Accepted into the Healthier Hospitals Initiative

The Mitchell Group is pleased to announce that its healthcare polyurethane products have been accepted into the Healthier Hospitals healthy interior goals of the Safer Chemical Challenge. Healthier Hospitals (HH) is a permanent program of Practice Greenhealth involved in implementing sustainability practices with healthcare organizations.
Healthier Hospitals has provided more than 1,300 hospitals with free tools and resources that help focus efforts on the healthcare sector's biggest areas of sustainability: energy, chemicals, and food service. 
The products of furniture and materials manufacturers fall under the Safer Chemicals Challenge. Healthier Hospitals (HH) makes it easier for hospitals to select furniture and materials that meet the Healthy Interiors goal of the Safer Chemicals Challenge.
HH worked with furniture and textile manufacturers to identify products that meet the Healthy Interiors goal. The goal requires participating hospitals to ensure that 30 percent of the annual volume of furnishings and furniture purchases (based on cost) eliminate the use of formaldehyde, perfluorinated compounds, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), antimicrobials, and all flame retardants.
Mitchell polyurethane products that meet the Healthier hospitals Safer Chemicals Challenge include Sta-Kleen (all PU patterns); NuLeather (NuAnce and NuTron); Mitchell Collection (Frankie and Soleil).
