Figuring the Impact of Green Products
March 25, 2009
Looking at the whole life span of the product and its impact on the earth’s environment, the space it’s going in and the people around it is called the environmental life cycle. Included in the environmental life-cycle assessment of a product are the materials it’s made from, how it’s handled at every step of the production process, impact of shipping and delivery, and its eventual recycling, disposal or transformation at the end of it’s useful life.
Considering all these factors in an environmental life cycle assessment will ensure that your facility looks beyond the hype and chooses the greenest product available.
