Green Seal turns 25 this year. Join us for the celebration!

Throughout 2014 Green Seal will be commemorating a quarter century of standard development, certification, and building a more sustainable world.

In 1989 the pioneers that started our organization recognized the need for a tool to help shoppers and purchasers identify truly green products. Green Seal was launched as a nonprofit and our ecolabel was developed to stand for absolute integrity.
A message to our clients
We congratulate all who produce and provide Green Seal-certified products and services. From entrepreneurial start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, only the leaders in sustainability have earned the Green Seal.

You are the change-makers, the footprint-reducers, and the protectors who make a real difference. During 2014 we will be sharing our clients’ successes on our site, in social media, and at events.
Tell us your story
Many collaborations, breakthroughs, innovations, and "ah-ha" moments make up the 25 years of Green Seal history. We would love to share yours. Email to submit a story or comment and we will share it on our social media sites.

Join the Party!

The Year in Review

By Arthur Weissman, Ph.D, Green Seal President/CEO 
In the more northern climates, at least, we typically experience a riot of color in the autumn before the vegetative world quiets down for the winter.  My staff and I mirrored this burst of activity with a busy fall travel schedule, visiting clients and partners and appearing at conferences and tradeshows. 

As the calendar year winds down and allows a moment of reflection, I’d like to review what we have achieved over the past year, usually with the participation of clients and partners, as well as what lies ahead. (Read more...)
