July 11, 2007 – Washington D.C. - Green Seal announces the release of GS-8, the revised Environmental Standard for General-Purpose, Bathroom, Glass, and Carpet Cleaners Used for Household Purposes. Now available to manufacturers and consumers, the new GS-8 includes updates to criteria for prohibited ingredients, air pollutants, skin an eye irritation, skin sensitization, and packaging.
“We are very excited to provide a certification for products that will further help health-conscious consumers make informed choices in their grocery stores,” said Cheryl Baldwin, Director of Standards for Green Seal.
Products that attain certification under the revised GS-8 standard will be the leaders in providing effective cleaners that are environmentally preferable alternatives to mainstream household cleaners. In the past two years, polls and statistics confirm a 20 percent increase in purchasing of environmentally preferable products, a trend that continues to grow at a precipitous pace.
