From the formula to the packaging, the newest hand sanitization product line from Purell meets EcoLogo's standard for environmental leadership, while continuing to uphold the PURELL high standard for hand hygiene and healthy skin.

The new line of environmentally friendly hand sanitizers from GOJO Industries is now available from Pollock Paper, http://www.pollockpaper.com. The PURELL® Green Certified Instant Hand Sanitizer is the first and only hand sanitization product line on the market that is certified by EcoLogo™, one of the most recognized third-party, multi-attribute eco-labeling programs worldwide.

"GOJO's newest green hand sanitizing product meets all the measures we look for in an environmentally well-conceived product, and it works just as advertised," said Larry Singleton, Pollock's Director of Sustainability.

What sets PURELL Green Certified Instant Hand Sanitizer apart from the other hand sanitizers on the market is its formulation--it is made with 100 percent naturally renewable ethanol and is completely biodegradable, thereby virtually eliminating chemical threats to the environment. PURELL also redesigned their packaging materials to meet green standards--product refill bottles are lightweight, recyclable, and made with 30 percent less material than standard bottles. The new packaging will save more than 250 tons of plastic each year.

After being introduced to GOJO's green certified hand sanitizer at a recent tradeshow, David Berman, Pollock's Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager, made the following observation: "You can call it green, green certified by EcoLogo™, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; no matter how you describe it, this product is truly environmentally friendly. The company that makes it understands sustainability and clearly knows how to meet an emerging market's needs. GOJO's EcoLogo certified sanitizer works as well as GOJO's ground breaking, market leading PURELL hand sanitizer; and when disposed of correctly in the blue recycling receptacle, it will make even a diehard tree-hugger proud!"

PURELL Green Certified Instant Hand Sanitizer was launched on Earth Day, April 22, 2010 and is currently available in the U.S. only. It is available in both gel and foam, is fragrance and dye-free, and contains a natural moisturizer that helps improve skin condition. Despite the formulation changes, the product truly is just as effective as other PURELL hand sanitizers, killing 99.99 percent of common germs and helping protect consumers from illness.

Pollock Paper president Lonnie Pollock said that Pollock always "strives to maintain a balance between our environmental responsibility and our economic interests. We do this by promoting sustainable and environmentally responsible products, practices, and solutions with our customer partners, suppliers and associates." By carrying the new PURELL® sanitizer, Pollock will continue to remain true to their president's statements regarding the importance of being a good corporate environmental steward.
