The addition of natural energy is just another way that Earth Friendly Products is reducing its carbon footprint or energy consumption at this plant by 50 percent using solar power in an effort to keep the environment as clean as its products.

Bonus To Work At A Green Facility

The facility, which represents an effort to support local production and employment, opened June 10, 2010. To mark the occasion, Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, Vice President of Earth Friendly Products hosted a press conference at the facility, tours and a gala celebration in the evening with local elected officials and key business leaders from the Chicago-area.

"We are pleased to open a larger, greener facility in the Chicago area, which is not only where Earth Friendly Products began more than 40 years ago, but also a place that has made huge efforts in recent years to make being green a priority," said Van Vlahakis, CEO of Earth Friendly Products.

"Earth Friendly Products recognizes the great opportunity we have to contribute to those efforts by opening a plant that uses solar power and produces the ecofriendly products that help keep the greater Chicago area clean and green."

Operational since September 2009, the new facility points to the steady growth that Earth Friendly Products continues to experience despite the current economic downturn.

While most companies are continuing to scale back, Earth Friendly Products stands at the forefront of the new "Green" economy by opening a plant that represents an increase in need for ecofriendly products in the Heartland, despite cut-backs in overall spending.
