Aloe Vera of America, Inc. has been awarded the Blue Thumb Award and the Pollution Prevention Award for the seventh year in a row for its continued commitment to environmental health. Aloe Vera of America is the manufacturer and distributor of Forever Living‘s aloe vera products to around 160 countries.
About the awards issued
Both the awards were issued by the City of Dallas based on performance and finest management conventions for natural resource conservation. The Blue Thumb Award is a prestigious award given to companies that satisfy regional and national pretreatment provisions for reporting, monitoring, and manufacturing wastewater. It is based on regulatory adherence to all permit limitations when the City of Dallas conducts its testing on wastewater discharge grade. To accomplish this discharge grade, Aloe Vera of America treats its establishment’s production water discharge — stopping any possible contaminants through chemical processes — before sending it back out to the City of Dallas wastewater system.
Aloe Vera of America’s establishment has three wastewater sample points from which surprise samplings are taken, twice per month. To receive the Blue Thumb Award, the Company had to fulfill 24 perfect water sampling results in a year and pass two-yearly checks with flawless scores. To date, it has accomplished 168 successive perfect wastewater sampling results and 14 flawless checks.
The Pollution Prevention Award also called the P2 Award, is based on the finest approaches to pollution prevention. It is shown to companies showcasing a responsibility to decrease or eradicate contaminants through boosted efficiency of natural materials, energy, water, or additional resources — or saving of natural resources by conservation.

“Our major objective is to assure that all Forever Businesses concede with all national, state, and municipality environmental and occupational safety laws, norms, and directives,” says Rafael Hernandez. “We are regularly examining and implementing endeavors to decrease the environmental effect of our manufacturing processes.
