For decades, State has been a pioneer in developing and manufacturing professional-strength green products for commercial settings. That spirit is woven deep within our culture and has been an integral factor in our pursuit of safer, more environmentally preferred products.
Our designation as a EPA Safer Choice* Partner of the Year in 2017 and again in 2018 was a milestone achievement in our pursuit of manufacturing products with green chemistry formulations that are safer for employees, workplaces, communities and the environment. At the forefront of our commitment is Ecolution®, a line of green products that are third-party green-certified, each carrying one or more health and environmentally preferred certifications.
To instill such a deep commitment throughout our organization, it needs to be at the forefront of everything we do and that begins with our ISO14001 certification for environmental responsibility. The processes and principles we adhere to in order to retain our certification are transferred into the products and services we develop for our customers.
Our commitment to the environment and sustainability starts with our internal operation, extends to our customers throughout North America and to our neighbors. Teams of State employees help the elderly and less fortunate keep their yards clean and safe during volunteer clean-up days as well as deliver meals to those in need. Our giving nature goes further as we host multiple clothing donation drives and Harvest for Hunger events throughout the year. Additionally, each year State employees fund at least two Make-a-Wish® dreams for some very special children. We truly care for all environments.

EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on State Industrial Products, its integrity and good faith, for information on the product's composition, ingredients and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of State Industrial Products non-ingredient claims.
