Before Energy Star, before LEED, and before “green” became a marketing buzzword, there was Green Seal -- America’s first independent, third-party certifier of sustainable products and services. The 25-year-old non-profit works with leaders among product manufacturers, service providers, hotels and restaurants to help them be more sustainable, earn certification and|or institute green purchasing.
By rewarding industry leaders Green Seal successfully reduced the use of toxins and dangerous chemicals and preserved natural resources. For example, recognizing that asthma is the leading cause of absenteeism in schools according to the Center for Disease Control, Green Seal led the drive to eliminate asthmagens use in cleaning products as the first ecolabeling program to prohibit them.
“Green Seal is proud to recognize EcoLogic Solutions for the leadership it has demonstrated in achieving certification for the SANeWater product,” said Arthur Weissman, President & CEO of Green Seal. “Not only does this product derive from an innovative production process, but it is also the first in this category to be certified under our specialty cleaning products standard.”

In the ELS press release, Anselm sums up the Green Seal Certification profound industry impact:
We are beyond thrilled, and deeply proud, to bring the first ever GS-53 Green Seal-certified sanitizer/disinfectant to market. SANeWater is a game-changer, and Green Seal is the gold standard in our industry. Together, we’re letting commercial users know there’s a new, non-toxic option to effectively sanitize and disinfect operations.”The prominent Green Seal certification is another accolade in ELS's well-earned recognition for their outstanding technology and products. In April 2012 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency honored ELS for their achievements in protecting the public health and environment at the annual Environmental Quality Awards. The IMPACT Blog article, EcoLogic Solutions receives EPA Award, gives details of the prestigious honor.
Last November, the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce (MCC) named ELS 2013 Green Business of the Year. The MCC selects an annual “Green Business of the Year” from more than 100,000 companies that do business in Manhattan. .
