Pioneer Athletics will recognize Earth Day 2010 on April 22nd by celebrating the positive impact their Ultra Friendly line of paints are having on both the athletics industry and the ecosystem.
Pioneer’s three Earth-friendly paints, Brite Stripe Ultra Friendly, Star Line Ultra Friendly, and Game Day Ultra Friendly are completely free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and include more readily biodegradable components than ever before. These paints are the only athletic field marking paints to have received the prestigious EPA “Design for the Environment” (DfE) designation.
Pioneer employees will include facts about the EPA DfE program and their Ultra Friendly paints throughout the day while conversing with customers. Employees will also celebrate Earth Day with special employee events at the company’s Cleveland, Ohio headquarters.
The EPA’s Design for the Environment program works in partnership with industry, environmental groups, and academia to reduce risk to people and the environment by finding ways to prevent pollution. When you see the DfE logo on a product it means that the DfE scientific review team has screened each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects and that the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class.
