Green Seal - Your Trusted Ecolabel

An ecolabel is a symbol or graphic on a label that demonstrates a certification by a third-party, government agency, trade-association, or manufacturer that a product is better for the environment than a conventional product.

What sets the Green Seal apart?

Green Seal is the original independent ecolabeling organization in the US. Since 1989 the Green Seal mark has identified products and services that perform well and have less impact on our health and environment and performs as well as expected.
