Green Claims Guidance

For the cleaning products sector

ukcpi Green Claims DEFRA2eFINAL

This Green Claims Guidance has been produced at the invitation of DEFRA by UKCPI, the leading trade association for manufacturers of cleaning products, to supplement DEFRA’s Green Claims Guidance published in 2011 in relation to specific issues that can arise in the context of cleaning products. DEFRA have reviewed this guidance before publication.

Giving clear, straightforward, environmental information, as outlined in this guidance, has benefits for consumers and business alike. By providing information about the environmental effects and qualities of products, and how to use and dispose of them, environmental claims (sometimes called “green” claims) help consumers to make informed buying choices. They also help to raise awareness of the issues, enhance consumer understanding and improve product standards overall. At the same time businesses can enhance their credentials and demonstrate that they are acting responsibly to consumers, other business partners and regulators.

Myth Busters

Did you know the facts behind this common myth?

Myth: Children living in cleaner homes are more prone to allergies

Fact: There is no evidence of a link between living in super-clean homes and increased allergies such as hay fever, eczema or asthma; nor does being too clean lead to immune-related diseases such as diabetes.
