GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Seal Environmental Standard for Laundry Care Products for Household Use (GS-48)

Title:
Green Seal Environmental Standard for Laundry Care Products for Household Use (GS-48)

Abstract:
GS-48 specifies performance requirements and environmental and health requirements for household laundry care products, such as concentration, reduced toxicity, biodegradability, and reduced and recyclable packaging. Companies can use GS-48 to guide their product development, and are invited to apply for Green Seal certification. The standard covers the following products labeled for household use: laundry detergent products, stain and spot removers, bleaches and fabric softeners, anti-static and anti-wrinkle products, fabric refreshers and prewash products, laundry starch/sizing/fabric finish, and combination products that may serve several of these functions.
