ECO-SCALE

Whole Foods set up a rating system to help consumers sort through all the green-washing that surrounds "Green" cleaning products so the customer can make an informed decision. They call it Eco-Scale™.

At Whole Foods Market® we believe it's important that consumers are able to make informed decisions about the products they buy. We also believe in doing our part to encourage a more Eco-friendly household products industry.

The Eco-Scale™ rating system we have developed is the first cleaning-products standards of any retailer and the highest standards of any "green cleaners" standards-setting group. Based on audits conducted by a third-party audit agency, household cleaning products are rated red, orange, yellow or green on our Eco-Scale™.

Absolute Green was chosen to participate in the new rating program. After months of submitting lots paperwork for third party verification and hours of conference calls: Absolute Green was given the highest GREEN rating on Eco-Scale!  This makes us one of the smaller companies in the US to have this award... We are so proud :)
