Third Party Certification Programs

EcoLogo - Environmental Choice Program (ECP)

The EcoLogo Program was founded in 1988 by the Government of Canada but now recognized world-wide and was designed to certify products and services that are deemed environmental leaders in various categories. The EcoLogo program was developed based on scientific standards to establish criteria to distinguish those products and services which reduce environmental impacts throughout their life cycle. All certified products and services are verified by an independent third party auditor.

DfE (Design for the Environment) - Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Design for the Environment allows manufacturers to put the DfE label on household and commercial products, such as cleaners and detergents that meet stringent criteria for human and environmental health. Using these products can protect your family's health and the environment.

Green Seal

Green Seal was founded in 1989 and is a non-profit organization that uses science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers and companies to create a more sustainable world.


The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving human health and quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people's exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. In keeping with that mission, GEI certifies products and materials for low chemical emissions and provides a free resource for choosing healthier products and materials for indoor environments.
