The Australian Ecolabel Program is the national environmental product life cycle ecolabelling program for Australia. Good Environmental Choice Australia Ltd manages the Australian Ecolabel Program, and is an independent organisation recognised as the Australian member of an international network of ecolabelling schemes. The Ecolabel is awarded to those products that meet or exceed voluntary standards of environmental performance. The verification process performed by Good Environmental Choice Australia has found EcoCover Mulch Mat and EcoCrop Mulch Mat to be fully compliant with the requirements of GECA 11-2005 – Recycled Paper Products standard.
Internationally, similar labels for manufactured products subscribing to such high environmental standards and auditing processes are very valuable, especially for the organic and domestic retail markets. Such labels confer a high level of confidence in the consumer’s purchasing decision to buy environmentally responsible products. Such brands have high recognition with consumers and usually generate a ‘value added margin’. Environmental Choice New Zealand is an accredited member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN).
