Earth Friendly Products CEO Van Vlahakis is one of two business leaders awarded the Lifetime Business Achievement Award, given by the Los Angeles-based Sustainable Business Council (SBC) on April 18 in Santa Monica.
The goal of these awards is to showcase Southern California’s sustainable business community, which is a vital part of the state’s overall economy. Yet, there is a perception that many of the individual achievements and contributions made by sustainable companies are not appropriately recognized. These awards provide an opportunity to salute sustainable professionals’ contributions to the marketplace and the community. Preeminent business leaders from around Southern California attended the inaugural event which was held in the Lexus Santa Monica showroom on Wednesday, April 18 from 7:00pm-9:00pm to coincide with Earth Day.
Vlahakis is a Greek-American businessman who came to the US as a poor immigrant and created a green giant in the cleaning supplies industry.
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 of its products.
