GREEN SEAL® CONNECTS PURCHASERS TO PRODUCTS THAT MEET THE STRICTEST HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARDS
As the nation’s original independent ecolabeling organization, the Green Seal Certified mark identifies products that are guaranteed to meet the strictest standards for performance, health, and environmental safety. In turn, purchasers provide a powerful market push for manufacturers to create more innovative products that are better for people and our planet.
Together, we are raising the bar for the places we live, work, learn and play
Nearly half of U.S. states and thousands of universities, school districts and healthcare facilities specify Green Seal as a trusted resource for environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP).
Green Seal certified products help you meet your EPP needs by:
- Reducing toxicity
- Protecting indoor air quality
- Using recycled content
- Reducing water and energy use
- Meeting biodegradibility levels
- Meeting GSA specifications
- Meeting EPA EPP specifications
- Counting towards LEED points
