Earth Friendly Products® has just added two more awards to its growing collection. The manufacturer of safer, environmentally friendly cleaning products has won NCW’s Eco-Excellence Awards in both the Kids Laundry Detergent and Laundry Detergent categories. Attendees at this week’s Natural Products Expo East show in Baltimore, Maryland, can stop by booth #2829 to learn more about the detergents that were named “Best of” in their category.

ECOS™ Laundry Detergent, Magnolia & Lily was the winner in the Laundry Detergent category, and Baby ECOS™ Laundry Detergent, Free & Clear took home the honors in the Kids Laundry Detergent category. Both products use plant-powered ingredients to create detergents that are effective and safer without the use of dyes, optical brighteners, parabens, phosphates or phthalates.

Now in their seventh year, the Eco-Excellence Awards™ are the only ones of their kind to recognize excellence in social and environmental sustainability for products, services, companies and websites. They are specifically designed for the whole foods and health and wellness industries. A team of judges narrows down thousands of entries to five finalists in each category, and the winners are chosen by the voting public.

“We’re so thrilled that our ECOS™ and Baby ECOS™ detergents were honored with this year’s awards,” says Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, president and CEO of Earth Friendly Products®. “The health of families and our planet have been the heart of what we do for fifty years. To be chosen not just once but twice by consumers who use our products every day is something we’re incredibly proud of.”
