Green Seal retires a standard in response to one or more developments:
· The environmentally-preferable options on the market have become mainstream
· Other ecolabel programs have taken the reins, and we’re happy to bow out because we believe in the quality and integrity of their program
· New technologies have improved the entire product category
· The product category is no longer being manufactured and sold on today’s market.
All of our withdrawn standards are available by contacting our Standards Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you have questions about why a standard has been retired, or the standard itself, we're happy to help.
