EPA Debuts Web Portal to Give Manufacturers Information on 'Green Products'

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched a green products web portal that can help manufacturers find information on standards and criteria for designing greener products.

On the new tool's home page, businesses can choose what category of product they are seeking help with and click through to EPA advice on what programs are applicable for that product. Companies can then find out what performance specifications the product must meet to join the program.

Consumers can also use the site to find electronics and appliances that have earned EPA's Energy Star label, WaterSense products that help save energy and water, and cleaning products bearing the EPA Design for the Environment label.

The new green products web portal is available at www.epa.gov/greenerproducts.
