First Consumer-Based Online Database Dedicated to Green Products Launches
ATLANTA, Georgia (April 24, 2013) - ProvenSustainable.com is excited to announce the launch of its website aimed at promoting reputable green products and certification organizations. After months of research, ProvenSustainable.com is able to provide consumers and professionals with valuable information about sustainable product certifications, validations, declarations, and the organizations offering these services.
“We realized there was a gap in information and resources,” says Brian Mueller, director of business development and co-founder of ProvenSustainable.com. “As consumers searching for this type of information and professionals in the sustainability industry, we felt a certain obligation to provide the resources we all need.”
The goal of the website is to provide clarity and confidence to the green product marketplace which has become cluttered with unsubstantiated claims and eco-labels. The website is divided into three main areas. The Certification Center identifies and describes the marketplace’s most respected eco-labels, certifications, validations, and declarations, as well as accredited certification organizations. The Info Guide & Blog provides industry insight, eco-tips, and advice on sustainable living, operations, and development. The Green Product Guide lists a variety of appliances, building materials, interior design products, and consumable goods with their full array of third-party environmental verifications, certifications, and declarations so buyers can avoid green-washing. The Green Product Guide incorporates a GreenScale to help visitors quickly identify products with multiple green attributes. An EcoPerk feature also helps identify additional environmental attributes which may not require certification. For example, a product made out of bamboo would receive an EcoPerk for being a rapidly renewable material.
“Finding and purchasing sustainable products should be easy,” continued Mueller. “Our Green Product Guide is the solution. Not only does it list credible products in the marketplace, but it also provides sales contact information or a link for purchase.”
