This Earth Day was very special for us here at the Healthy Home Dream Team. Ron & I had the absolute honor and pleasure of emceeing the 50th anniversary celebration of our favorite green cleaning product company, Earth Friendly Products, in Addison, IL. We enjoyed a special farm to table lunch serving organic cuisine that was vegan and gluten-free; even the menu was printed on biodegradable paper embedded with plantable seeds. With Governor Bruce Rauner of IL in attendance as well as senators, state representatives and even the city Mayor, Richard Veenstra, we left inspired and so hopeful about our future, the health of our planet and the people on it. From green jobs and higher wages, Ecos is improving the health of the planet and reducing their carbon footprint…one bottle at a time!
With over 200 products serving over 60 countries, Earth Friendly Products has everything you need for a cleaner, green home including their Ecos laundry detergent; the number one selling green laundry detergent in the world. They’ve even earned the coveted Safer Choice certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Plant based and packed with powerful essential oils, the entire Ecos line smells as good as it cleans and is manufactured in carbon neutral facilities across the US, while achieving the Platinum Zero Waste certification from the US Zero Waste Business Council (USZWBC).
One man. One dream. Twenty two dollars. That’s how it all began by Greek immigrant and Earth Friendly Products founder, Van Vlahakis. The family owned and operated business is still committed to plant-powered cleaners that contain zero toxins, petrochemicals, bleach, ammonia or phosphates. Take a peek now to see some of the action. We hope you had a wonderful Earth Day and took this opportunity to start making healthy changes in your life. Be it switching to nontoxic cleaners, recycling or eating more plants and less meat and dairy, every change does matter. Let’s make 2017 the year to Be the change that you wish to see in the world. ~Gandhi
