EU Eco-Label


During my investigations into the greener side of Europe, I have come across an interesting logo. Part flower, part euro and part flag, it symbolizes the EU Eco-label.

It is called the “flower logo,” and it was established in 1992. The Web site Eco-label.com describes the eco-label as a unique certification scheme aimed to help European consumers distinguish greener, more environmentally friendly, products and services (not including food and medicine).

There are 23 product categories, ranging from Textiles to Do-it-Yourself. Within these categories, products range from light bulbs to lubricants.

The good thing about this label is that it is easy to identify and is present throughout the EU. That means environmentally friendly products can easily be identified regardless of what country you find yourself in.
