Cascades Tissue Group

To help address the issue of climate change, Cascades is the first and only towel and tissue manufacturer to offset 100% of the electricity used in the manufacturing of select products with Green-e certified wind-generated electricity.
Their use of clean, renewable, emission-free energy prevents the annual release of 39.7 million lbs. of CO2 emissions, which is equivalent to planting 4.9 million trees or taking 3,537 passenger vehicles off the road. Cascades also manufactures 100% recycled paper products. Click here for more information on Cascades Tissue Group.

Sustainable Cleaning ProductsEarthDay_1231980_76813417

Earth Friendly Products

Earth Friendly Products started in 1989. They were the first manufacturer to use orange oil in their formulations, as well as the first to use enzymes.

Their goal is to create totally sustainable, non-toxic, plant-based cleaning products, free of dyes, synthetic perfumes, petrochemical-based surfactants and phosphates, while being grey-water and septic safe.

They were one of the first of their kind, and to this day are the leading primary manufacturer of plant-based cleaning products in the United States.  In 2007, their ECOS Laundry Detergent became the best-selling environmentally preferable laundry detergent in the United States, and has maintained that status to this day.

Earth Friendly Products also has commercial product offerings. They offer over 70 formulas for specific commercial cleaning applications, available in ready-to-use and concentrated formulas. Check out their Proline Commercial Product offerings here.

Enviro CareRochester Midland Corp.

The Enviro Care line’s number one priority is to insure that products are “environmentally preferable”. Meaning, products will have a lesser effect on human health and the environment (vs. traditional products), with increased safety for the end-user. The products not only have to work, but they have to work at levels that truly reduced harmful impact to the environment and users.

They have a long list of Green Credentials, either members, chairing committees, being nominated, or recieveing awards for their community based environmental service, business practices and products.

They offer 16 different lines, ranging from air fresheners to hand soap, to floor finish remover and carpet and upholstery cleaner.  Check out their Enviro Care Sell Sheet here.
