PRIDE Industries Launches New PRIDEClean® Product Line
ROSEVILLE, December 8, 2009 – PRIDE Industries is pleased to announce the launch of PRIDEClean®, a green cleaning product line. PRIDEClean® consists of seven commercial cleaning products, five of which are recognized by the EPA’s Design for Environment (DfE) program. The professional strength products are environmentally friendly, responsibly manufactured and create jobs for people with disabilities.
PRIDE Industries private labeled the products, working with a contracted chemist. PRIDE will package and distribute the biodegradable cleaning products including; a green glass and mirror cleaner, a streak-free glass and mirror cleaner, a green multipurpose cleaner, a green bathroom and scale remover, a green neutral cleaner, a heavy duty degreaser, and a green carpet cleaner.
At launch, five of the seven products are recognized by Design for Environment (DfE), a program of the Environmental Protection Agency that works with individual industry sectors to improve human and environmental health. The DfE program is one of the EPA’s premier partnership programs and comes from the same creators of the EnergyStar label consumers rely on when choosing energy-saving appliances and electronics.
PRIDEClean® also comes with a unique bottling system with two dispensing options. The bottle features a closed loop system that is spill proof and odor proof, along with recyclable packaging, making PRIDEClean® one of the “greenest” complete packages in the industry.
PRIDEClean® will rollout its distribution in three-tiered phases. Phase one consists of nationwide distribution to over 100 internal Commercial and Government PRIDE contracts servicing the custodial needs on over 40 million square feet of building space. Phase two will expand product availability and distribution to other commercial custodial companies and facilities. Phase three will be a scaled approach to market the products to consumers through retail and e-tail channels.
