Brooklyn NY – June 20, 2011 Wembé is thrilled to announce it has been awarded the Green America Business Seal of Approval. The seal is presented to businesses that go beyond product and service quality to set the highest standards in environmental sustainability and social justice, and work to solve, rather than create, environmental and social problems.
To be considered for the Seal of Approval and earn a listing in the annual National Green Pages™, businesses complete a rigorous screening process to ensure they meet Green America’s standards for the environment, community and labor.
Wembé is known for its unique organic soap blends, which can be found nationwide at www.wembe.com. Their goal is to provide meaningful employment to their local populace, and to make people aware of the incredible array of beneficial plants in the Amazon rainforest. As they believe that the best and the rarest comes from the Amazonian soul, they captured virgin and undiscovered essences and turned them into evenly moisturizing, detoxifying and relaxing blended products.
“We are over the top excited to earn this coveted Seal of Approval,” said Rolando Zuccolillo, founder and President of WEMBE USA INC. “It’s one of the most respected and recognized symbols in the green marketplace and a powerful way to set Wembé apart as a leader in its field.”
Wembé is now an Approved member of the Green Business Network, a distinguished and celebrated group of companies that use their products and services as a vehicle for social and environmental change.
