Midlab, Inc. is a proud supporter of the environment.
Our Environmental Policy ensures the protection of the environment through the utilization and management of natural resources. “Everything Clean” may be the driving philosophy behind our company, but is not solely limited to our product’s ability to clean effectively and efficiently. “Everything Clean” also encompasses our shared responsibility to improve the quality of the world we live in. We promote the recycling of all applicable products and make continuous efforts to improve the environment where we can. We do this because we believe in a healthier, CLEANER standard of living for all of our planet’s inhabitants. At Midlab, we believe in a better future.
Industry Trendsetter Turned Leader in Sustainability
Our Plant Recycling Program is a comprehensive solution to improved sustainability. We responsibly dispose of numerous recyclable materials, including cardboard and plastic— two of the biggest contributors to waste in facilities like ours.
While many of our green efforts take place on the manufacturing side, we proudly lead by example in all stages of our business lifecycle. We currently recycle 95% of all cardboard and plastic used in our manufacturing process and aim to keep that number rising.
“Our ‘Everything Clean’ philosophy is a way of doing business that extends to protecting the environment. In any industry, it’s important to do your part and we at Midlab are excited to be leading by example.”
– Matt Schenk, President
Our Commitment to Green Initiatives
Midlab’s commitment to sustainability means working closely with 3rd party certification organizations and developing eco-friendly brands our customers will feel good about using.
Midlab is a proud carrier of FlexMax Packaged products. Our commitment to innovation led us to FlexMax— a packaging solution designed for a cleaner, safer environment.
How does FlexMax help protect our environment? When compared to conventional buckets, FlexMax Packaging uses less material and energy in both production and distribution. Research shows that FlexMax reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 30% and post-consumer solid waste by 62%. With its easy-to-use, eco-friendly design, FlexMax proves that Midlab really does have the answer in the bag.
One Midlab brand in particular is making waves in the cleaning industry. Nattura is more than just a product line — it’s one of the most comprehensive 3rd party certified green cleaning programs in the industry.
With products for all industries, Nattura helps reduce the harmful effects every day cleaning products can leave on the environment and its inhabitants. Our Nattura products and manufacturing processes meet the strictest standards.
The Safer Choice Program uses EPA’s chemical expertise to carefully evaluate products and label only those that have met the program’s highly protective standards. The label acknowledges chemical products that are safer for people and the planet, without sacrificing quality or performance.
We’re proud to produce innovative cleaning products under the Safer Choice guidelines that help make the world a safer place.

ECOLOGO certifications tell the story of a product’s environmental performance throughout its lifecycle. This certification enables purchasers to identify holistically green products and meet strict sustainability goals.
Being ECOLOGO certified means a reduced environmental impact at a time when taking care of our planet has never been more important. We promise to continually improve under this certification by complying with product testing, auditing, and additional eco-friendly efforts from the manufacturing to disposal phases of our production.
Green Seal™ Approved
Since 1989, the Green Seal of Approval has used science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers, and companies to create a more sustainable world. That’s the Green Seal mission, and that’s what Midlab chooses to be a part of every day.
Following a rigorous set of performance and quality criteria, we took the necessary steps to become Green Seal approved because we understand the importance of a healthy environment. This certification shows purchasers that we’ve established an ongoing commitment to our environment by complying with periodic monitoring and maintaining our status with Green Seal.
At Midlab, we’re constantly seeking innovation and improvement wherever possible. That’s why we’re excited to announce our journey into LEED Certification!
The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Certification stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. LEED recognizes best-in-class building strategies through a green tool that addresses every phase of the building lifecycle.
We’re currently in the final stages of becoming LEED certified. Upon achievement, Midlab will become the first heavy manufacturing facility in the industry to be 100% certified.

Get Involved in Sustainability
- Recycle. Recycling sends less waste to landfills that are polluting our environment at an alarming rate. A simple online search will show you where your nearest recycling facility is located. Materials such as paper, aluminum, cardboard, plastic, and glass are some of the most common items accepted at most recycling facilities.
- Reduce your carbon footprint by using less energy. Installing energy-efficient lights, machinery, and equipment into your facility will impact your energy use substantially and save on wasted resources, including internal costs.
- Do your research. Purchase cleaning products that were formulated under strict, eco-friendly standards. Use distributors that actively participate in green initiatives and consistently work to improve the environment in all stages of their product lifecycles.
