Lately companies have put out more and more products that are considered green. Philips has now released the Green Tick logo to help consumers recognize products that are a bit more environmentally friendly.
This logo is placed on products that are 10% better in comparison to other products on the market. However, they only have to be better in one of these five categories: hazardous substances, energy efficiency, weight, packaging and recycling. Although it is great that Philips is taking a step in the right direction, the logo does not mean that the product is completely green. It just means in comparison to other products it is the lesser evil.
Although there are not all that many products with the Green Tick logo, Philips intends to bring up that number by the end of this year.
