Earth Friendly Products Receives EPA Honor
Earth Friendly Products has been named a 2019 Safer Choice Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The manufacturer of plant-powered laundry detergents and cleaners has earned the honor for its outstanding achievement in the design and manufacture of products that are safer for families, pets, workplaces, communities, and the environment.
The award marks the third time that Earth Friendly Products has earned the Safer Choice Partner of the Year designation since the program began in 2015. Earth Friendly Products was also the first manufacturer to feature the Safer Choice logo on its packaging and has been an active participant in the EPA’s safer ingredients programs since 2008.
Earth Friendly Products offers over 140 ECOS products that are certified Safer Choice. To qualify for the Safer Choice label, a product must meet EPA’s Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria. In fact, Earth Friendly Products offers more Safer Choice-certified products than any other manufacturer.
The Safer Choice logo, featuring an icon of a home and family, enables consumers to quickly and easily find products that are made with safer ingredients. Safer Choice certification requires ingredient disclosure, which helps shoppers make informed choices at the point of purchase. In addition to safety, Safer Choice logo also certifies that the product has met high standards for performance.
“Earth Friendly Products is recognized as an outstanding 2019 Safer Choice Formulator-Product Manufacturer and has been a Safer Choice partner since 2008,” says the EPA in an announcement. “Seventy-three percent of the company’s entire product line has earned the Safer Choice label and Safer Choice values its dedication to formulating products with safer ingredients.”
Earth Friendly Products is the first company in the world to have achieved the “trifecta” of carbon neutrality, water neutrality, and TRUE Zero Waste Platinum certification. The company uses 100 percent renewable energy to make its ECOS green cleaning products at its facilities located in California, Washington, Illinois, and New Jersey.
