Green Products (Earth Friendly)

Earth Friendly Green Products are designed for "Cleaning with the earth in mind." Green Products are formulated with the environment and human health strongly in mind and use the following types of ingredients: biodegradable surfactants with byproducts that are less toxic than the parent compounds: solvents that are not hazardous air pollutants and pose no threat to the Earth's ozone layer: fragrances that have been screened for potential hazardous and persistent ingredients: and other components with a more positive enironmental profile than in conventional cleaning and floor care products.

We recognize the importance of caring for the world's enironment as well as ensuring a safer workplace. We take this responsibility seriously and offer a safer, more user friendly product line and commit to keeping it at the leading edge of green technology. Green products are manufactured with environmentally preferable chemistry to help ensure a healthier and safer environment.

User Benefits

Green Qualifying Products offer users the following set of benefits:

  • The Qualifying Products are formulated with the environment and human health strongly in mind and use the following types of ingredients: biodegradable surfactants, with byproducts that are less toxic than the parent compound; solvents that are not hazardous air pollutants and pose no threat to the Earth's ozone layer; fragrances that have been screened for potential hazardous and persistent ingredients; and other components with a more positive environmental profile than in conventional cleaning and floor care products.

    Environmental Protection

  • Worker/Consumer Safety

    The Qualifying Products are also formulated to help ensure a safer workplace. Users of these products benefit from ingredients that include no components that pose serious hazards. This benefit is amplified for janitors, maintenance staff, housekeepers, and others who must use cleaning and floor care chemicals in confined spaces on a daily basis. Importantly, a safer health profile especially benefits children, who spend a large part of their day in indoor environments and can be particularly sensitive to the chemicals in some cleaning and floor care products. Also, the mild pH, low volatility, and low potential to catch fire enhance the safety profile of these products.

  • Resource Conservation

    The Qualifying Products also have certain attributes that may significantly reduce wear and tear on substrates, fabrics, and other surfaces with which the products come in contact, thereby extending their usable life.
