Totally Green Achieves ETL Certification for ORCA Green Machines
TULSA, OK–(Marketwire – Apr 27, 2012) – Totally Green, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLGN), a pioneer in organic food processing systems and compostable packaging alternatives, announced that Intertek has approved the ORCA Green™ Machine to carry the ETL certification mark on all current production models. ETL certification represents a globally recognized standard that ensures consumers of product quality and safety.
Intertek is a global inspection, product testing and certification company that is the largest tester of consumer goods in the world. It is an industry leader with over 127 years of experience with more than 30,000 people in 1,000 locations in more than 100 countries. Major corporations around the world depend on Intertek to ensure the quality and safety of products, processes and systems.
“After an extensive process, where our manufacturing facility and ORCA Green Machines were put under multiple inspections and tests, we are confident the ETL certifications will open doors to some of the largest consumer companies in the United States and Canada,” said Totally Green President and Interim CFO Nate Baker. “This also solidifies many RFPs with our clients in Canada, which maintains more stringent product safety standards than the U.S. We are confident this certification will also help convert several existing pilot trials, as well as initiate others with the numerous institutional and commercial prospects in our pipeline.”
Beginning May 1, 2012, all new ORCA Green Machines will bear the ETL mark.
Since the ETL certification requires stringent testing of components and ongoing inspections of the production facility, this mark confirms that ORCA Green Machine meets the highest standards for product quality and safety. Given the processes established with this new ETL listing, the approval process of future products is expected to be faster and more efficient.
