CRS Launches Product Labeling Effort

November 2003 - The non-profit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) announced a new initiative to encourage businesses that purchase Green-e certified renewable energy to display the Green-e logo on packaging for their consumer products. Under its Made With Renewable Energy labeling program, CRS invites companies to publicize the fact that they have made an important environmental commitment through their purchases of certified renewable energy. By displaying the Green-e logo on product packaging, companies can inform consumers that a significant portion of the energy required to produce the product came from renewable sources.

According to CRS, about 10,000 businesses and 110,000 households currently purchase Green-e certified renewable energy. A number of businesses have already applied to use the Green-e logo, including White Wave, Interface Fabrics Group, Choice Organic Teas, and Lundberg Family Farms.
