Blue Ribbon Supply announces New Green Designation

Blue Ribbon Supply's green eco-friendly leaf designation is for products containing a high percentage of recycled, rapidly renewable, environmentally friendly and/or organic contents!

S SAN FRANCISCO, CA - November 29, 2011 - Blue Ribbon Supply, a leading wholesale distribution company providing a broad range of products and services to owners and managers of hospitality, educational and commercial properties; coin laundries, healthcare providers; as well as municipal and government facilities, is pleased to announce a new symbol to help customers quickly identify carefully selected eco-friendly products.

Blue Ribbon Supply's green leaf eco-friendly designation is being introduced to help customers make informed decisions on products that have improved environmental performance - especially when these types of products are compared to their conventional counterparts. Such products can now be easily identified by a new green leaf icon on product pages in the company's catalogs and website. By mid-December, more than 200 Blue Ribbon Supply products will be labeled as eco-friendly, with additional offerings scheduled for the New Year. Products that are part of Blue Ribbon Supply's eco-friendly designation program are designed to conserve resources and are often manufactured with a high percentage of recycled, rapidly renewable and/or organic contents. Identifying such products can help foster a customer's transition toward sustainability, likely assist customers seeking USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) LEED®-EB certification and potentially enhance human health in general.

"Although we previously offered numerous products containing environmentally friendly contents, we are moving from a grassroots approach to a formalized commitment to environmental performance in more of our products over time," said John Dilena, General Manager of Blue Ribbon Supply. He continues, "Many of our customers are recognizing that their purchase decisions can have a positive and direct impact on our world, and we are committed to offering eco-friendly solutions that can help our customers achieve their environmental goals."
