Getting to know the Organizations Helping to Protect Us – Part 4 of 4

May 2nd, 2011

Today’s post is by Mark Davis; Vice President of Operations and CTO at SafeSourcing. Mark asks "How do you leverage the work from organizations helping to protect the planet and its people?"

For more than 20 years, Ecologo has been working diligently to certify products all over the world that meet strict standards for leading the way in environmental responsibility.

Founded in Canada in 1988, Ecologo is only one of two North American eco-labeling programs approved by GEN as meeting internationally recognized ISO 14024 requirement and has certified thousands of products, creating one of the world’s largest pool of sustainable products.

Like many organizations of its type, Ecologo goes beyond just ensuring that companies who want to be certified are following the guidelines set, but they also play a huge part in marketing those companies and products to the world so that people and companies can choose to align themselves with companies who show a bigger accountability to this planet than just making money.

Extremely active, in just the month of April alone, Ecologo announced certification of new printer cartridges and standards for ink and toner, household cleaners and copy paper.   You can read more about these press releases at http://www.environmentalchoice.com/en/inthenews/pressreleases.

For more information about how you can ensure that you are including companies and products who have been certified by organizations such as Ecologo, the Marine Stewardship Council, the Gluten Free Certification Organization, and the Forest Stewardship Council, please contact a SafeSourcing customer service representative today.

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
