Allen Johnston was working as a successful engineer in the defense industry when his mother, a longtime teacher, contracted an environmental illness after moving to a new school and eventually died from complications related to it. He decided to dedicate himself to creating environmentally-friendly products that improve people’s lives. Thus, he founded Greentech Environmental with three friends, initially working out of his basement until the business took off.
