Misleading product claims have muddied the waters when it comes to selecting green cleaning chemicals. Luckily, certifications from Green Seal, EcoLogo, GreenGuard and the EPA's Design for the Environment program are making it a whole lot easier for purchasers to identify and procure chemicals that are truly green.

These third-party certifiers assure that chemicals bearing their logo of approval minimize the risk for negative health impacts on cleaning personnel and building occupants, while simultaneously decreasing environmental impact. Rest assured, when seeing any of these third party logos on a chemical, you'll know that the product went through stringent testing and that all green claims made on the product's label and marketing material are factual.
