First ACE Hardware Location Goes Green with Green Earth Technologies

Celebration, Fla.'s ACE Hardware now offering biodegradable automotive performance and appearance products from Green Earth Technologies

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE Hardware in Celebration, Fla. is officially the place for green. Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets:GETG) today announced this location of the trusted, national retailer of equipment for the home, garden, and garage will be the first to carry Green Earth's line of biodegradable automotive appearance and performance products. Consumers can now find the following on the shelves in the 20,000 sq.-ft. store: G-OILTM API TC Rated 2-Cycle Engine Oil; G-WASHTM Car Wash; G-GLASS™ Organic Glass Cleaner, Anti-Fog, and Hydrophobic Rain Repellent; G-WHEELTM Wheel Cleaner, and Brake Dust Shield; G-TIRETM Ultimate Tire Shine; and G-SCENTTM Odor Eliminator. All of these products are also available nationally in ACE's warehouses.

The local store is a hub of the Celebration community. Owner and staff commonly support local charities, participate in town events, and make significant donations to residents as a neighborhood cornerstone. A close connection with the community has kept them abreast of issues important to Celebration consumers, including all things green.

"We've received a large number of requests for green product offerings," says Mathew Benetti, franchise owner. "Green Earth's line not only meets our standards for performance and quality, but is also the perfect jumpstart to the green side of our business—something that is ever more important in a changing marketplace. We're confident recommending these products to all of our valued customers."

Jeff Marshall, President and CEO of Green Earth, adds, "We are pleased to partner with ACE Hardware in Celebration, and hope this will be the catalyst for relationships with additional locations around the country. There's no better place to introduce our products than through a retailer that is so in touch with local green initiatives."

All of Green Earth Technologies' products are classified as "ultimate biodegradable," perform above and beyond competitors as proven by engine tests and user testimony, are priced on par with similar products, and reduce dependence on foreign oil. GET uses a proprietary process to transform beef tallow into a biodegradable material that is the base of all of its products. This bio-base replaces traditional petroleum-derived bases typically used to make motor oils and cleaning solutions.

G-OILTM meets American Petroleum Institute (API) requirements for TC Rating for performance and engine protection. Test results showed that G-OIL met or exceeded the allowed tolerance of a benchmark reference oil on key performance criteria.

Green Earth's commitment to green motor oil doesn't stop with the product itself. Everything related to G-OILTM—including its recyclable packaging, labels, and water-based inks—is engineered to support environmental responsibility and sustainability.
