Earth Friendly Products’ new plant has been acclaimed by business leaders, government officials, and celebrities for its ultra green standards.
The state-of-the–art headquarters in Opa-Locka, Florida was designed by a LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) architect, and it features a host of environmentally-friendly features, including solar panels, solar tubes, daylight harvesting, water and energy saving appliances, and occupancy sensors.
EFP, maker of green cleaning products, held a “green carpet” event to celebrate the opening of the new facility. The mayor of Opa-Locka attended, as well as other local dignitaries and government officials. And Jenna Elfman, star of “Dharma & Greg” turned up to give the company further accolades and well-wishes.
Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, executive vice president of Earth Friendly Products, presented a cheque from the company to Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation, as a sign of the company’s commitment to the local community.
Ms Vlahakis-Hanks said; "Miami Children's Hospital delivers excellent medical care to every child who needs their help without regard for a family's ability to pay.
"Our contribution is a token of the gratitude, respect and deep admiration we have for one of America's finest paediatric medical facilities and the hard work and dedication of their Foundation that makes the full commitment to excellence possible."
