Green Certification and Ecolabeling

To differentiate your product or service as environmentally sound, you may want to obtain certification from an independent, third-party so that you can include their logo or “ecolabel” on your product’s label and other marketing materials. Ecolabeling is important way to market your product to green consumers.
