Thetford Corporation has been recognized as a Green Industry Innovator for its development
of green cleaning formulas for RVers with a Corp! Going Green Award. To win such an award,
a company must meet criteria in three categories; Green Initiative Champions, Green
Industry Innovators and Green Organizations. Eight of Thetford’s RV care products are
Design for the Environment (DfE)-recognized. The DfE program was started by the EPA to
champion risk reduction through pollution prevention. Thetford also introduced EcoSmart, a
full line of EcoLogo-certified holding tank deodorants. EcoLogo is North America’s oldest,
most recognized environmental standard and certification agency. “Our product formulations
were thoroughly tested in-house and with RVers,” said Mary Burrows, Thetford’s manager of
chemical development. “Our products are held to a higher standard than household products
by the EPA because they’re used outside. We were able to create formulations according to
the EPA’s requirements without sacrificing performance. We’re very proud that Corp!
recognized that achievement.” Founded in 1998, Corp! magazine informs, intrigues and
entertains business owners and top-level executives by providing features, news and
profiles with a Michigan emphasis. It’s Michigan’s largest business magazine. Headquartered
in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Thetford Corp. is the world’s leading supplier of sanitation and
refrigeration products for the recreational vehicle, marine and heavy-duty truck
industries. Thetford is a privately held company with eight manufacturing facilities in
four countries. Thetford subsidiaries include Norcold, America’s leading manufacturer of
gas-absorption refrigerators and freezers for the RV, marine and truck markets; Tecma, a
producer of fine-china toilets and powerful waste-transfer systems based in Italy; and
Spinflo, a unit in England that manufactures high-quality cooking and heating appliances as
well as accessories. For more information, contact Thetford at (800) 543-1219 or
