When Founder & CEO, John Bennett learned that he could take bio-renewable chemicals and replace toxic petroleum ingredients without losing performance properties, he began the journey to prove that bio-based technology can be utilized without jeopardizing performance, health, or costs. We chose a difficult but rewarding path by using bio-renewable chemistry in every product we manufacture. Even though there are no application or cost differences compared to traditional products, overcoming negative perceptions of "eco-friendly" products is a challenge, especially with professional installers, but that is slowly changing.
Eco Safety Products (ESP) has over 16 years of field durability that spans across the U.S. and abroad. From the homeowner to Fortune 500 organizations, we have achieved end user sustainability and performance goals. ESP is a bio-renewable products pioneer from its inception. We create industry changing solutions by collaborating with our customers. There is an urgent need to reduce carbon emissions, improve indoor air quality, and meet the transparency demands of the consumer. From coatings to chemicals, and custom formulations for OEM finishes, our goal is to ensure performance without negative health effects on occupants or users health.
COVID-19 has brought many critical challenges upon us. Protecting indoor air quality and building occupants health is being threatened by the use and/or misuse of hazardous disinfectants. Experts confirm that we have a false sense of security and don't really understand how to use disinfectants properly. As a result, we are polluting indoor spaces with poisons and not even killing bacteria. The years of work that I and fellow sustainability colleagues have done are being threatened. That is why on June 16th, ESP will launch safer antimicrobial protection alternatives that are EPA registered. Stay tuned!
OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFETY & SUSTAINABILITY:
We thoroughly evaluate and screen every raw material ingredient using a third party service partner that compares the ingredient data against the most current GreenScreen, Chemical Scorecard, and Red List Chemical databases prior to launching a product development project. Additionally, every supplier must agree to participate in our full ingredient transparency program to ensure every ingredient is measured to a minimum of 1,000 ppm and most to 100 ppm, can be validated, screened, and then submitted for USGBC LEED v4, Health Product Declaration (HPD), and other industry leading Green Building program reports.
OUR MANDATORY PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES:
All our products must meet three evaluation criteria in order to be released for sale to the public once it has passed our chemical screening process. (1) Sustainability: The product must contain renewably sourced ingredients, contain no red list chemicals, and meet the most stringent VOC Emissions Test. (2) Performance: The product must achieve the same or better performance results than its nearest same in class competitor. (3) Value: The product retail cost and/or true cost of ownership must be lower than its nearest same in class competitor or at least equal.
Being an industry pioneer and game changer takes persistence, determination, and a never ending pursuit of continual improvement. Our team of dedicated professionals who are individuals just like everyone of our customers, gives purpose to our daily commitment to provide the safest and most effective products available in class.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Protecting, preserving, and beautifying healthier green building spaces with bio-renewable chemistry.
