Earth Friendly Products, makers of ECOS, the World’s top-selling green laundry detergent and 150 other cleaning products using only plant-based, all-natural ingredients, announces the opening of the company’s first global office in Athens, Greece.

This will be the first global office for Earth Friendly Products and will pave the way for a production facility that will service Europe, the Middle East and Africa. This office will feature many of the same state of the art sustainable building measures that have become a standard for all Earth Friendly Products offices, for which the company has been internationally recognized and awarded.

Dr. Van Vlahakis, CEO and Owner of Earth Friendly Products said, “At Earth Friendly Products, we take our role as stewards of the environment very seriously and are committed to the development of products that are tough on dirt, kind to the earth and pose no harm to people or animals. For decades we have strived to keep that promise to future generations and we will continue to keep our pledge to our global customers aswell: to provide products that people can trust and depend upon.”

“But I also feel a very special connection to my homeland,” adds Vlahakis.

“Greece has fallen on hard times, and I feel it’s my duty as a Greek American who has had the good fortune of creating a life and a business here in America to take some of that success back to Greece. We hope we can lead by example and encourage other Greek American businesses to consider getting involved in restoring the Greek economy.”

The new Earth Friendly Products global offices will open in July 2013 at 69 Solonos in Central Athens near the Greek Parliament.

ABOUT EARTH FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Keeping your family safe and protecting the planet should not be a luxury. Earth Friendly Products was founded in 1967 by a chemist dedicated to providing superior cleaning results through true green practices.

By removing the toxic dyes and preservatives used in conventional detergents and owning our own production facilities, we are able to offer over 150 of the most effective plant-based green cleaners on the market at lower prices than our competitors. And because we control our own manufacturing, Earth Friendly Products assures the highest standards of quality control and total commitment to sustainability. That’s why the United States Environmental Protection Agency has awarded Earth Friendly Products its Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative Champion level recognition, as well as a 100% Green Power User distinction for the company’s use of clean, renewable energy from solar, wind and low-impact hydropower.

A GREEN STORY, the feature length film which chronicles the life of founder Van Vlahakis (played by Ed O’Ross), a Greek immigrant who arrived in America with only $22 in his pocket and eventually founded Earth Friendly Products will celebrate its Grecian premiere in Athens this summer, July 15th, and a national Grecian rollout will follow.
