A self-declared environmental claim shall be specific as to the environmental aspect or environmental improvement which is claimed.

11/28/2014

An environmental claim that is vague or non-specific or which broadly implies that a product is environmentally beneficial or environmentally benign shall not be used. It is therefore not possible to use terms like environmentally safe, environmentally friendly, non-polluting, green, nature friendly or ozone friendly.
