When a manufacturer markets a product as green in today''s market, there is little confusion as to what it means.
Increased awareness about the benefits of green products has led to greater credibility of green claims.
With unbiased third-party certification and independent in-house testing, manufacturer claims can be validated and product effectiveness can be gauged.
As the green movement evolves and technology improves, certification standards and requirements will become more stringent.
Some smaller companies, and even larger corporations, choose not to seek certification.
Rather, they and their customers know and trust their products and do not need a certified logo to tell them they are safe and environmentally preferable.
Regardless of the route manufacturers take to help BSCs go green, the truth is that green is an industry mainstay.
Green products are so much better than their traditional counterparts that many school districts across the country are mandating green cleaning programs.
If you have not begun to go green, you likely want to start.
Green is no longer just the future of our industry, it is the here and now, and you don''t want to be stuck in the past.
