Many products are now labeled to let consumers know they are green. SmartWood and Energy Star are two examples of specific labels. Wal-Mart will begin labeling all their products according to their environmental impact, in partnership with Tyson Foods, General Mills and other companies. This will likely be picked up by other retailers, making it easier to chose foods with a smaller carbon footprint.
A new initiative in food labeling includes the use of “sustainable” labeling, which will factor in additions to “organic” labeling, which was originally intended as a health standard. Sustainable factors may include standards for soil conservation, water quality, fair labor practices, wildlife protection and pesticide use in the production of food, giving consumers a more affordable alternative to organic.
In actual label production, the use of recycled materials and environmentally friendly water-based inks with natural dyes has helped make labels more eco-friendly.
