Our Organization’s Mission
Green Seal is a non-profit organization that uses science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers and companies to create a more sustainable world.
A Green Economy. One that is as sustainable as possible–renewable, with minimal impact–so that our environment, all forms of life and our natural resources are protected and our social needs and values are honored.
Green Seal is a pioneer in promoting a sustainable economy. In 1989 there were no other environmental certification programs in the US and our founders had the foresight to recognize the need for a tool to help shoppers find truly green products. They developed the Green Seal as a non-profit to stand for absolute integrity. Over the years the reputation of the Seal brand has grown to symbolize environmental leadership, and it continues to represent unquestionably green products and services.
