The EU ecolabel makes it easier to choose green

The European Eco-label Scheme was created in 1992 to encourage the production and consumption of goods and services that respect the environment. Products that bear the Flower logo have been officially distinguished as being amongst the most environmentally friendly in their range. An independent organisation awards the label following ecological criteria that take into consideration all the stages in the life of the product. A multi-stakeholder panel sets up the criteria. The European Commission adopts them officially.

Which products can obtain the Flower?

Consumer non-food products and services which generally have a significant impact on the environment. The Flower criteria aim at reducing that impact during the entire life-cycle of the product, from production to disposal.
