Why buy Ecolabelled products?
It is often difficult to compare products. Which one is better for the environment? That is what we at Ecolabelling Sweden are experts in doing.
We develop environmental and climate criteria for products and services for both the Nordic Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel. When you buy these Ecolabelled products and services and see these logos on the product package or at the service establishment (hotels, restaurants, etc), you can be assured that you have chosen one of the most environmentally-sound products available on the market.
Our consumption of products and services affects the environment. If you wish to live a more environmentally-friendly life, knowledgeable choices must be made. Lifestyles must be altered. A Nordic Ecolabelled or EU Ecolabelled product or service has fulfilled stringent criteria and are less detrimental to the environment and climate. To reach the goal of a sustainable society, we need your help. And it is easy to do: Buy Ecolabelled products and services!
Our climate and environmental criteria comprise the entire life-cycle of a product, from source to waste. The Nordic Ecolabel and EU Ecolabel criteria contain level requirements for chemicals, air, water and ground emissions, energy usage, packaging and waste management. There are also criteria for quality and functionality. A product that works and has a long life span is also better for the environment.
These criteria also are continually revised and improved, making these criteria among the toughest in the world. When you buy Nordic Ecolabelled and or EU Ecolabelled products and services you are using your consumer power to push for a more sustainable consumerism.
