What is a GREEN PRODUCT. And what I think about it.
Question: Green Products - What are Green Products?
What makes products 'green' and how do we know for certain they are green?
The term 'green' has nothing to do with color, but the choice of name is appropriate because green is a color that is often associated with nature. Green products are considered kinder to the environment than non-green goods, in one way or another. The term is widely used and it doesn't take much for a product to be called green, so it can cover a wide range of consumer goods.
A product is considered earth-friendly if it is biodegradable, meaning that it will pose no threat to the earth and environment, when it is released to the air, water or earth while in use or when disposed of. These types of products usually decompose much quicker in a landfill, than similar items that are not biodegradable. Biodegradable household cleaners, soaps, dish and dishwasher detergents and laundry soaps are just a few examples of this type of green product.
If a product contains any amount of recycled goods in its construction, it is also considered green for two reasons. That's because recycling reuses a material keeping it out of the landfill, as well as saves on the environment when alternative materials are not manufactured and used for that component.
What I think about it.
What I think about the green products and green business… I think that is so cool the green business, I mean, they are preocupate about the environment. We need to reuse things, like towel paper, toilet paper or things like this. I learn about the green roofs, the soil, the animals that are almost extinct and about the evironment problems like polution.
I like the green business, I think I will try to say to my mother or my father ( because I am only 12 years old) to buy green products because they're so important to us and to the evironment. Without environment we cannot live, and the animals cannot live, so we have to take care of the evironment, we need to. That's what I think about it.
