Deliver a knockout punch to household odors with the power of nature, harnessed by science. A healthy alternative to air fresheners, Fresh Wave consumer products are made with plant extracts and water – ingredients you recognize and can actually pronounce. OMI’s green engineering solutions solve organic and inorganic odor and emission control issues across three divisions with the Ecosorb(R) (industrial), Fresh Wave(R) IAQ (commercial) and Fresh Wave(R) (consumer) brands.
Products from all three brands have received several awards, including the iParenting Media Award for “Best Product in the Housewares Category.” In 2011, Fresh Wave IAQ products received the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Safer Choice” recognition for safer chemistry, and 2012 brought OMI a ranking on the “Inc. 5000” list, as well as a “Parent Tested, Parent Approved” (PTPA) award. All three brands are sold worldwide, both directly and through distributors.
