What are important green and Fair Trade certifications to pay attention to?
To live a conscious life you need information. Information on the sustainability, environmental and social efforts a company makes, to guarantee a product or service that is made with respect for the environment, humans and animals. Green and Fair Trade certifications help us make conscious decisions, without having to dig up ALL the information ourselves. That would be a (more than?) lifetime job for one person.
Finding your way in ‘certification-land’ is still quite a challenge. THERE ARE SO MANY! Some are better known than others, some overlap, some are just…vague. To help you find trustworthy certifications, we created this list that is useful for at home and for when you travel. We start with global green certifications, but will expand the list to national certifications, for the countries we have a city guide for.
