Green Seal™ is a US-based independent non-profit organization, founded in 1989 to identify and promote products and services that have less impact on human health, the environment and our natural resources. Green Seal-certified products have met strict criteria for reduced toxicity, reduced packaging and required performance testing, as verified by a third-party review and a manufacturing site audit, as well as on-going compliance monitoring.
Green Seal’s mission is to use science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers and companies to create a more sustainable world. Green Seal has 32 standards in over 375 product categories including Sanitary Paper Products (GS-1), Institutional Cleaners (GS-37), Institutional Floor Care Products (GS-40), Institutional Hand Cleaners (GS-41) and Institutional Specialty Cleaners (GS-53).
A professional in the cleaning industry can choose to utilize the Green Seal product certification standards to specify and source third-party certified products which have a more environmentally preferable profile. Green Seal-certified green cleaning products in the categories of institutional cleaners (GS-37), institutional floor care products (GS-40), carpet care, institutional hand cleaners (GS-41), institutional specialty cleaners (GS-53) and sanitary paper products (GS-1) can help a facility reach its overall sustainability goals, and can potentially contribute to LEED O+M certification for the building or CIMS-GB certification for the cleaning service provider.
