What Do Certified Sustainable Materials Mean For Your Brand?
Some companies have taken to certifying their products as “green” or sustainable, even though their production methods may not actually reflect those claims. This is known as green washing, and it can be difficult to determine which products are genuinely environmentally friendly and which ones are not
When a product is truly certified as sustainable or green, it means that it has been verified to meet certain environmental standards. The specific standards vary depending on the certifying organization, but they typically include criteria such as being made from recycled materials, being energy-efficient, or having a low impact on the environment.
Branded products that are certified as sustainable by globally recognized standards can be a great choice for consumers who want to reduce their impact on the environment and to avoid being fooled by green washing.
Your customer can make more informed choices about the products they purchase and know that your brand is trustworthy.
