Van Vlahakis, the owner and CEO of Earth Friendly products is not forgetting his roots. The successful Greek-American businessman, who came to the US as an immigrant and created a green giant in the cleaning supplies industry, is planning to open a new factory in his native Crete and create jobs for his fellow Cretans.
Earth Friendly Products is the leader in the development and production of environmentally friendly cleaning supplies for household and commercial use with over 150 products manufactured, distributed, and sold in the USA, Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia.
All Earth Friendly Products are created with only replenishable and sustainable plant-based ingredients that are safe for people, pets, and the planet. The company proudly adheres to its strict “Freedom Code”, a list of harmful and toxic ingredients that are not found in any its products.
Earth Friendly Products has already started the process of creating a manufacturing plant in Crete by scouting locations and getting in touch with the Greek authorities for all the necessary paperwork.
“This factory will give a boost to the local economy, create jobs, and it will also help Earth Friendly Products expand even more in Europe and Middle East” says Vice-President of Earth Friendly Products Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks.
The factory is expected to employ about 50-60 locals and it will also require raw materials from local suppliers, something that will contribute positively to the Cretan Economy.
