Taking the steps to promote a bright, sustainable future.
What is our mission?
To promote and support the use of eco-friendly materials by using informative symbols to let you know more about the products we are offering and their environmental impact.
Promoting and using natural and recycled materials, reduces waste, protects the earth’s resources, and reduces emissions. Not to mention, striving for sustainability, allows us to evolve and adapt to meet the continuing challenges to the environment.
Striving to be as honest as we can be when adding these classifications and by avoiding Greenwashing.
