GreenTag’s Cleaning Products certification cuts greenwash right through to the squeak.

The market for ethically produced and sustainable products is growing at a record pace. That’s good news. But with big-budget brands desperately trying to capture the “green market” it can be hard for buyers to see through their big-budget advertising and make wise buying choices.

Spending precious time poring over lists of ingredients, looking for the lurking timebomb in that supposedly “green” product, it can start to feel like you need a science degree just to stay safe and ethical in your choices. GreenTag has made it easy for manufacturers to show consumers and professionals their product is safe and sustainable at a glance.

Don’t expose yourself to substandard products and unverified environmental claims. Trust the GreenTag.

Meet Frank,
Hotel Procurement Manager 

“When it comes to our hotels, there’s no compromise on cleanliness or environmental standards. We used to spend hundreds of hours per year researching products to make absolutely sure they met our policies and standards. Now there’s only one question we have to ask. Does it have the GreenTag? Then we know we can trust it.”

Here are just a few of the ways GreenTag helps Frank:

1. GreenStar rating

GreenTag’s powerful one-stop certification unlocks industry-leading rating schemes. It’s the fastest and easiest way to meet the requirements for GreenStar®, EarthCheck® and Green Sash.

2. Manage risk

Frank needs to know his products meet key ISO standards and government regulations. GreenTag reviews the science for him, auditing all manufacturer claims thoroughly to protect him from legal action.

3. No toxicity
