The World is going Green.
What does this mean?

Sociologists, environmentalists as well as urban planners are developing what are termed “Green Plans” for our future. “Green Plans” treat the environment as it really exists; as a single, inter-connected ecosystem that can only be safeguarded for future generations through a systematic, long-range plan of action. Through a shared vision and cooperative effort among all sectors of society, both public and private, we can demonstrate that a healthy environment, enhanced quality of life and a vibrant economy can exist, and they must co-exist to remain viable over time.

What is “Environmentally Friendly”?

This is a broad marketing term that referring goods, services and/or practices considered to inflict little harm on the environment. “Environmentally Friendly” often includes recycled products, a range of consumer-related products that go through a “Green” certification program (provided by Green Seal, a US-based non-profit agency), biodegradable and compostable products, as well as
products that are the result of manufacturing methods committed to energy conservation. The governmental/ regulatory agencies who apply a “non-bias” set of criteria about issues and standards supporting a range of environmental considerations are the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Each of these agencies are very clear about their interests in ensuring that claims being made are qualified.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and the environment. Since 1970, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment and leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts. EPA develops and enforces regulations that implement environmental laws enacted by Congress. EPA is responsible for researching and setting national standards for a variety of environmental programs, and delegates to states and tribes the responsibility for issuing permits and for monitoring and enforcing compliance.Where national standards are not met, EPA can issue sanctions and take other steps to assist in reaching desired levels of environmental quality.

Biodegradability and Compostability

Products that are biodegradable or compostable reduce waste and pollution, as well as help capture the full value of our increasingly scarce natural resources. The term “biodegradable” signifies a product has the ability to break down safely and relatively quickly by biological means. This term includes solids that biodegrade into the soil (also known as compostable), and liquids which biodegrade into the water. All such materials eventually biodegrade, however, breakdown does occur at various rates.
