Hero exceeds USDA BioPreferred Biobased specifications. Federal Government organizations have been mandated by Executive Order to buy biobased products. The objective is to expand the market for biobased products as well as to demonstrate the environmental advantages of biobased. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has set the standards for biobased products that satisfy the federal requirements. Also the USDA created the BioPreferred Program to help validate suppliers for government buyers.. We are proud that many Hero Biobased Products exceed BioPreferred biobased percentages and some products have been approved to display the USDA Certified BioPreferred Biobased Label.

Hero is sustainability in a bottle. Sustainability is a new way of thinking about an age-old concern: ensuring that our children and grandchildren inherit a tomorrow that is at least as good as today, preferably better. We must balance between resources used and resources regenerated. Sustainability is a way for us to preserve the legacies of future generations and is the broadest, most inclusive definition of our philosophy of environmental protection stewardship. Hero Biobased Products help achieve this goal.
