ECOmark®, a program carried out with ECO Label accreditation, was established in 2005 to identify products that are environmentally friendly and have no ecological harm.
The application of eco labels started in the European Union countries with the eco label system, then spread to the whole world in a short time.
Now everyone is aware that natural resources are depleted, animal and plant species are gradually decreasing, climate changes, global warming, ozone depletion and many more environmental disasters are at the door. Because all of these reasons more consumers are tending to select ecologic products nowadays.
In order to be included in the ECO Mark Program, the product must have certain criteria. Each product must have its own category and the product has criteria for compliance with these categories.
The product must have official certification and product certification.
In order to have these certificates, the product must be approved by the ECO Mark committee.
The product can be included in the ECO Mark® Program after the ECO Mark usage agreement signed with the ECO Label Environmental Association.
The Eco-Label application or Ecological Label System, developed by ECO Label, was launched to help consumers choose greener products and services.
Green product or green product means products that are sensitive to environmental conditions, do not consume natural resources, pollute the nature, can be recycled or protected. Environmentally conscious people pay attention to the signs and certification statements on the products. However, some conscious consumers want to go one step further and make sure that nature is well protected in the process from the production of green products to the sale in the markets. It asks whether the facilities where these products are produced cause harm to the environment, whether the waste is managed well or not, even if transport operations are carried out with environmentally friendly vehicles. Because unfortunately some malicious people can make the products look like they are environmentalists.
Green products should not pose a danger to human or animal health, should not harm the environment during production, use or waste stages, should not use energy resources excessively and should not generate unnecessary waste due to poor packaging or short life span.
