Earth Friendly Products has remained a leader in their industry and continue to keep efficacy, green and affordability at the forefront of their business. The administration is working to ensure that all businesses in Illinois can be this successful. One way to do that is to cut the regulatory red tape that is blocking small businesses and entrepreneurs from wanting to grow and expand in Illinois. Governor Rauner launched Illinois Competitiveness Council to streamline and improve restrictions in state government.
