In celebration of Earth Day, Green Seal released its 2023 Impact Report, showcasing how we and our partners are accelerating the transition to safer and more sustainable products and spaces.
The report highlights the impacts of Green Seal’s programs; key partnerships with organizations including Amazon, Wayfair, the U.S. Green Building Council, ISEAL, Health Product Declaration Collaborative, and others; and the environmental savings achieved by products that bear the Green Seal mark.
Green Seal exists to empower organizations and people to effect large-scale, transformative change simply through their purchasing choices. That’s why the report focuses on impacts achieved by Green Seal-certified products, their producers, and their users, including:
- Ensuring Clean Water: Green Seal-certified sanitary paper products saved 12.4 billion gallons of water in 2022
- Minimizing Waste: Green Seal-certified cleaning products save 1.7 billion industry-grade 1-liter plastic bottles each year
- Preserving the Climate: Green Seal-certified sanitary paper saved 12.5 million tons of CO2 emissions annually due to 100% recycled content
- Protecting Human Health: Green Seal-certified cleaning products protected 9.6 million students and teachers from toxic chemicals and asthma triggers in 2022
The 2023 Impact Report also highlights Green Seal’s new initiatives — including a sustainable packaging recognition program and leadership-level prohibitions on PFAS in certified products — and features case studies of companies that adhere to Green Seal’s strict science-based standard criteria and demonstrate significant leadership.
If Green Seal’s market transformation model proves anything, it’s that collective action drives impact. In this year’s report, we highlight how, together with you, we are accelerating the transition to safer and more sustainable products and spaces.
