Providing accountability, consistency and transparency when making greener choices.

When you're looking for sustainable products, we believe it should be easy to make informed purchasing decisions. We're working to provide more information about our products' environmental impact by stepping up to participate in the ACT label program with selected products. Created by non-profit organization My Green Lab to help consumers make smart, sustainable product choices, the virtual ACT label provides environmental Accountability, Consistency, and Transparency for each labeled product through an environmental impact score. The score is based on the product's environmental impact with regard to manufacturing practices, energy and water use, and end-of-life disposal. It's like an eco-nutrition label for lab products.

How to use the ACT label

Regional-specific ACT labels

Scores for shipping impact and end of life disposal are dependent on where the product is made and then sold and used. To address regional score differences, My Green Lab has now begun publishing region-specific labels for product used in the United States, the European Union and United Kingdom.
