ECOS hosted a tour of its sustainable manufacturing facility in Cypress, California, on Aug. 31. ECOS CEO Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks welcomed Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis; U.S. Rep. Alan Lowenthal; Krystian Lahage, field representative to U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein; Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley, 2nd District; and the Girl Scouts Ambassador Troop 1982 to the facility.
The event was held to show appreciation to the essential workers for their dedication to making safer cleaning products throughout the COVID-19 pandemic
Additionally during the event, ECOS was honored with the first Platinum-level WELL Certification for a cleaning products manufacturer, certifying that ECOS has created facilities that prioritize employee health and well-being and embeds people-first strategies into its organizational culture.
With a vision to continuously set its sustainability standards higher, ECOS announced earlier this year that it is now a Climate Positive company, regenerating more natural resources than it consumes to produce its plant-powered products, furthering its mission to protect the planet.
“Californians care about the environment. We are a global leader in combating climate change and a global leader in innovation around protecting our environment. At ECOS, all of you here are at the forefront of that effort. So let me just start by saying from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for pursuing your mission every single day,” said Kounalakis. “I want to not just thank you but to express to you, on behalf of all the people of the state of California, that we see you, that we know what you are doing, and that you have our gratitude for your service during this extraordinarily challenging time, as we and the rest of the world have combated this global pandemic.”
