February 14, 2012

CELEBRATION, Fla., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Green Earth Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GETG), a leading manufacturer and marketer of “green” environmentally safer consumer packaged goods and products, announced today its line-up of environmentally preferred lubricants for the 2012 season, featuring a full line-up of American Petroleum Institute Certified (API) motor oils in various weights and sizes, including Ultimate Biodegradable Bio-based Advanced Full Synthetic, Full Synthetic, Synthetic Blend, Conventional and 2X Refined Motor Oils.

“We introduced GREEN motor oil years ago as an American grown, non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable base stock motor oil, but ‘green motor oil’ has taken on a variety of definitions since,” says Jeffrey Loch, President & CMO of Green Earth Technologies. “We’ve adopted these definitions while remaining true to our own ideologies of being GREEN and now have the ability to offer a full lineup of API Certified motor oils that allow us to penetrate the entire motor oil category.”

Environmentally Preferred Lubricants fulfill a niche in the total 2.4 billion gallon USA lubricant marketplace; however, there is not a universally accepted definition. G.E.T. and the industry generally identifies them by three parameters: 1) base stock made with either renewable or reusable base stocks, 2) non-toxic or having a lower level of toxicity and 3) high level of biodegradability.

This year, G.E.T. has expanded their line-up from 2 viscosity grades of Bio-based Advanced Full Synthetic (5W-30 and 5W-20) available in 2011 to 17; plus, two more viscosity grades of biodegradable “bio-based” full synthetic racing oil:
