Good to get back to reporting on Earth Friendly Products, a company we profiled the last time we were in CA. Great company, great products. Congratulation to the team for 50 good years.
What is your commitment to using earth-friendly products? Ours is great. We think it shows one small kindness to our environment, our community, our homes. We hope you feel the same:
Earth Friendly Products, one of the nation’s leading green cleaning products companies and maker of the ECOS™ brand of products, hosted a number of California and Environmental VIPs to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary, in conjunction with Earth Month and in honor of Arbor Day. The event, hosted by President and CEO Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, took place at the company’s Cypress manufacturing facility.
To honor its achievement, Earth Friendly Products gave back to the community by presenting a $150,000 check to the Discovery Cube Museums of Orange County and Los Angeles. The donation supports the museums’ award-winning Eco Challenge exhibit and brings green chemistry into classrooms to empower children with the tools they need to “think green” at an early age. Additionally, all employees of the company were gifted with an extra week’s salary for Earth Month. More than 300 guests were in attendance, including.
