The EU-Ecolabel is the official European ecolabel for non-food products (just like products that carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel). Products with the EU-Ecolabel integrate environmental considerations, live up to strict environmental standards and are high quality. The EU-Ecolabel sets the standards of a product’s specifications. This means that a t-shirt, as an example, is required to live up to certain standards, whereas toilet paper obtains the EU-Ecolabel by living up to other standards.
The EU-Ecolabel can be added to our toilet paper, kitchen towel and wet wipes.
