As a responsible manufacturer, we are environmentally oriented, including waste and energy usage. Green certification is primarily for consumer chemical products, with much emphasis on building materials, processes and energy. We explored Green Guard and Green Seal certification, which apply to cleaning agents. We are familiar with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), Green Label, Ecologo, Design for the Environment, Greenstar Certified and Greenguard, among others. In a phone conversation with Green Seal, we learned it takes 3 months, requires an elaborate request for information, and the cost will not be quoted until the application is submitted.
We chose Earth Friendly Technologies for our Glass Gleam products because they are affordable and quick to approval. Since Glass Gleam products contains no hazardous ingredients and are biodegradable, this certification was easily obtained. It has since been reviewed and approved by many leading companies. I can’t name them here for legal reasons but you’ve definitely heard of many of them.
Our packaging was also selected to be environmentally friendly. We make Glass Gleam extra concentrated — as concentrated as possible — so we do not ship water. We reduce usage of plastic bottles and cartons which may enter the waste stream, and encourage recycling of our bottles made of HDPE plastic. The users benefits while reducing our carbon footprint.
