EARTH FRIENDLY PRODUCTS BECOMES APPROVED VENDOR TO GREEN HOTELS ASSOCIATION
ADDISON, Ill. – Earth Friendly Products (www.efpproline.com ) joins the Green Hotels Association as an ally member and approved vendor. The company is the only Green Hotels Association approved vendor of cleaning products made with 100% sustainable, plant-based ingredients.
The Green Hotels Association provides information and guidance on a holistic approach to "greening" the lodging industry. Member hotels have realized substantial savings by instituting programs that reduce water consumption, energy usage, and waste as well as using environmentally preferred cleaning products and paper goods. Additionally, the Association links environmentally concerned consumers with the lodging industry with a list of participating hotel members available on its website (www.greenhotels.com).
"We are excited to be a part of the Green Hotels Association''s efforts to provide a more environmentally-friendly lodging experience from housekeeping to HVAC," says Luke Bobek, director of industrial and institutional sales for Earth Friendly Products'' Proline division. "This relationship is a perfect fit for us. Green-savvy consumers recognize the Earth Friendly Products name and will appreciate staying in establishments that also recognize our quality. We already have many lodging venues using our products to replace aerosols and higher-priced, toxic cleaners. Just like the Green Hotels Association, we also embrace a holistic ''environment-first attitude.''
Earth Friendly Products is a vertically green company, which means our commitment to being environmentally responsible goes well beyond the products we produce. Three of our five manufacturing plants are solar powered, all five factories have been remodeled by a LEED certified architect and our company as a whole is 95% waste free."
The Green Hotels Association splashed onto the national landscape in 1993 with the simple idea of asking guests if they wanted to use their towel more than once. Today, the Association addresses a multitude of environmental opportunities in the lodging industry, from the signature towel initiative to promoting water-saving devices such as toilet-tank fill diverters.
