At CAF, sustainability isn't just a buzz-word, it's intertwined with how we operate. From the ingredients in our products to the recycling bins at our individual desks, we are committed to doing our business the green way with our customers, our operations and our community.

When you're cleaning outdoors - the ingredients you use matter! CAF products are engineered to reduce harsh chemical impacts to the environment. Our cleaning products contain ingredients that are designed to be safe, biodegradable and are derived from natural materials.
Bioremediation is the naturally occurring process where very small living organisms called microbes break down contaminants. The microbes are then able to consume the broken-down contaminants like oil and diesel as a source of food and energy. As a by-product of the digestion process, microbes release water, carbon dioxide and other non-harmful amino acids.
CAF products such as EXIMO® and FORO® are time-driven solutions to remove oil and fuel stains on concrete and asphalt as shown in the example above.
CAF is all about reducing the environmental footprint. We are giving back to our community by helping to keep our roads free of debris and garbage for the safety of drivers. Additionally, we started a program with our local city officials to assist in removing graffiti and tags throughout the city.
