Their facilities across the U.S have achieved TRUE Zero Waste certified at the Platinum level. EFP’s goal is to eliminate waste at the source and at all points down the supply chain. Reducing unnecessary waste at the source allows Earth Friendly Products to both mitigate the inefficient use of our natural resources and benefit economically from decreased handles and disposal costs.

Reducing unnecessary waste at the source allows Earth Friendly Products to both mitigate the inefficient use of natural resources and benefit economically from decreased handling and disposal costs. Earth Friendly Products has created a recycle-friendly environment with easy-to-reach bins that are labeled reminding everyone what goes where. Bins and signage will train and remind employees to divert waste for reuse. It’s a challenging journey with many steps, but the destination is rewarding for the company, employees and the environment.
