What Does Eco-Friendly Mean?
Posted: Aug 22 2019
At Earth Smart Solutions we pride ourselves on being eco-friendly.
Eco-friendly is a buzzword that we all hear frequently with respect to shopping bags, straws, household cleaning products and other common products we use in our everyday lives.
In recent years, some companies have been criticized for ‘greenwashing’ or marketing their products as being eco-friendly or environmentally friendly to ecologically conscious buyers without actually being so, but what does eco-friendly actually mean?
What Does Eco-friendly Mean
Eco-friendly literally means: earth-friendly; not harmful to the environment; designed to have little or no damaging effect on the environment.
"Eco-friendly products" commonly refers to products that help conserve resources or are made using sustainable resources and ingredients that contribute to green living. Eco-friendly products also prevent contributions to air, water and land pollution and do not harm the environment, whether in their production, use or disposal.
Attributes of Eco-friendly Products:
- Help conserve resources or are made using sustainable resources, produced in ways that do not deplete the ecosystem
