Addison, Illinois (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
On Wednesday, December 14, employees of the green, manufacturing leader, Earth Friendly Products, were presented with the Illinois Governor’s Sustainability Award for their progressive, sustainable initiatives.
Their program to reduce plastic was the key initiative leading to this prestigious award. By reducing 7 percent of the plastic in the ECOS containers, EFP demonstrates a continual drive to constantly push the boundaries for the future and the environment. For every 10,000 containers produced and by reducing the amount of plastic by 7 percent, EFP will be reducing GHG emissions by 111.3 lbs. Debra Jacobson from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center praised the company’s work and General Manager Mike Marrese received the award on behalf of all employees.
