3M Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Liquid Awarded Green Seal Certification
Industry's first GS-53 certified griddle cleaning liquid
ST. PAUL - Minn. – May. 14, 2013 – 3M is pleased to announce its Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Liquid, a key component of the Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Cleaning System, has been awarded Green Seal certification. The product is certified under the GS-53 Green Seal standard for "Specialty Cleaning Products for Industrial and Institutional Use," and is currently the only GS-53 certified griddle cleaning liquid in the industry.
In order to be Green Seal certified, the Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Liquid had to meet strict requirements in five major categories: Functional performance, health and environment, manufacturing sustainability, packaging sustainability, and training and labeling. This certification indicates that the Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Liquid is a more sustainable, non-toxic, environmentally-preferred cleaning product.
"3M has a long-standing commitment to protecting the health and safety of customers and the environment," said Amber Rhy, Marketing Supervisor at 3M. "The Quick Clean Griddle Liquid has no caustic soda, no strong chemical odor, and doesn't require a water rinse after use – it's safe for use on food contact surfaces. By getting the Green Seal certification, we were able to take that commitment to the next level, making it easier for our customers to choose environmentally preferred and more sustainable products.
Green Seal, Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization that develops sustainability standards for products, services and companies, and offers trusted third-party certification for those that meet those standards. Green Seal has been helping organizations be greener since 1989 by actively identifying and promoting environmental sustainability.
3M's Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Griddle Cleaning System is an easy, three-step process that can
clean a dirty, food-soiled griddle in just three to five minutes – half the time as traditional griddle
cleaning products. The system not only makes cleaning a hot griddle quick and easy, but also safer
