We see buzzwords like “eco-friendly” “green” and “environment-friendly” everywhere today. What qualifies a product as eco-friendly?

Eco-friendly products are foremost non-toxic. Additional considerations include sustainability and use of recycled material in the product. Biodegradable components and industrial wastes that are less taxing on landfills and the ecosystem are also part of the equation.
