Green actions promote conservation of the earth’s natural resources, energy efficiency, and lessening dependence on industrial chemicals and petroleum products. A green product is one that:

 

•   Uses a renewable resource

•   Is not dangerous to the health of people or animals

•   Does not cause damage to the environment or consume a disproportionate amount of energy in its manufacture, use, or disposal

•   Does not cause unnecessary waste, due either to excessive packaging or to a short useful life

•   Does not involve the unnecessary use of, or cruelty to, animals

•   Does not use materials derived from threatened species or environments.
