Green Seal Publishes Standard On Laundry Products

Read the full post from Today’s Facility Manager.

This past January, Green Seal, a nonprofit certification organization founded in 1989, announced the publication of GS-51: Laundry Care Products for Industrial and Institutional Use.

Designed to address the life cycle impacts of laundry care products used in institutional and industrial settings, GS-51 specifies performance, environmental, and health requirements such as concentration, reduced toxicity, biodegradability, and reduced and recyclable packaging.

The standard covers more than 20 product categories for conventional laundry and dry cleaning, including detergents, prewash products, spot removers, laundry additives, and fabric care products.
