About Us

About EcoSMART®

EcoSMART®, is the world leader in safe pesticide solutions. Our mission is to create the world’s safest, most effective pesticides based on non-toxic ingredients. We have 15 years of scientific research and a wealth of patents behind us. We manufacture insecticides that are safe to use around children and pets when used as directed, and we offer a complete line of EPA exempt pesticides.

 

Essential Oils - Nature’s Way

 

EcoSMART® was the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils to create a safe pesticide brand. Our products are based on the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self protection against insects and pathogens for millenia - essential oils.

 

EcoSMART® is based on solid science

University research has shown that these oils attack octopamine neuro-receptors. Octopamine is a key insect neurotransmitter that regulates insect movement, behavior and metabolism. The blockage of the receptor activity prevents the transmission of the octopamine signals, which delivers quick knock down, kill and repellency against a wide variety of household pests such as cockroaches, ants, dust mites, flies, wasps, spiders, crickets, and fleas. Our blends of natural plant oils are effective at killing bugs fast without leaving harmful residues.

 

Our Patents and Technology Platform

EcoSMART® has been issued 40 U.S. patents and 55 foreign patents, with multiple applications pending. We have 20 product formulations that are exempt from EPA registration under the rules defined in the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act. Under these rules, EcoSMART®’s EPA exempt products can make unique, explicit safety claims not allowed with traditional pesticides. These safety claims enable EcoSMART® to clearly distinguish itself from conventional, synthetic products.

 

Safe for use around children and pets

EcoSMART®’s blend of essential oils pose an insignificant risk to the environment. The primary active ingredients in our products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Our products have no adverse effect on children, pets, wildlife or the environment and also will not contaminate water sources.

 

Long track record

We are not newcomers to this. Our university-tested and field-proven technology has provided natural pest control solutions to the agricultural and commercial markets for many years. EcoSMART® is a trusted name in the industry and provides safe and effective alternatives to conventional insecticides for leading commercial pest control services.

 

EcoSMART®’s household products are available in leading retail stores and through our online store.

 

Be smart. Be EcoSMART®!

Environmental Policy & Sustainability Statements

Green Initiatives

 

The basis of the EcoSMART® brand is to develop products that a.) provide customers with a safe, natural way to control pests in their environment;  b.) feed/grow trees, lawns and plants for enjoyment and consumption; c.) do not pollute/corrupt the environment. More than many other companies, we are very conscious of the impact a manufacturer has on the environment and how important it is to keep our footprint small. We maintain a green policy that ensures our commitment is maintained at all levels of our business.

 

  • Internal – Recycling at Facilities. All EcoSMART® facilities encourage employees to use designated recycle bins for materials which can be recycled and processed for secondary use, and separate bins for other materials. Recycled materials are collected and periodically delivered to an appropriate local facility for processing. Non-recyclable materials are disposed of through local waste collection channels.

 

  • External – “Green” Vendors. EcoSMART® prefers to work with vendors who provide goods and materials that are produced using a percentage of recycled material. This may also include post-consumer materials. These vendors  include:
  • Bottle manufacturers
  • Label printers
  • Can manufacturers
  • Ingredient vendors
  • Container/Product Fillers
  • Parts (sprayers, valves, etc.)
  • Bag Manufacturers & Fillers

Due to the nature of our industry, some Federal regulations exist that require certain products not be sold/stored in a container that contains recycled materials. However, the majority of containers used for EcoSMART® products do contain a percentage of recycled material.

 

Product Disposal Policy

Even though EcoSMART® products contain natural ingredients, our products must be properly disposed of using a specific process. We carefully determine the correct disposal policy for each product and each policy is clearly spelled out on the individual product container. You may also contact us on our website for disposal procedures for each product.
