ULS Certification Program Announced

Earth friendly. Recyclable. Environmentally safe. Biodegradable. Compostable. The list of marketing claims and superlatives seems to get bigger and more confusing daily.

To help consumers make more informed decisions about products and packages, we've created a Sustainable Products Certification Program that allows companies to feature the ULS logo on their packages if they can prove significant reductions in material and energy consumption, and their marketing claims meet FTC guidelines for environmental statements.

You can also read about the program in the just-released April-May-June 2009 newsletter. It also includes Spring Cleaning Tips, an editorial on the importance of facts rather than faith, and a roundup of interesting product trends in sustainability.
