    GREENGUARD Launches Mobile Website for On-The-Go Access to Thousands of 3rd Party Certified, Low-Emitting Products

    Allows the public to search quickly and easily for GREENGUARD Certified products directly from their smart phones


    (Atlanta, GA)—Parents, architects, designers, and other consumers can now peruse the GREENGUARD Product Guide, the world’s largest database of low-emitting products, at any time, from anywhere—right from their smart phones.

    “This provides convenient, on-the-go access to thousands of GREENGUARD Certified products,” says Henning Bloech, executive director of the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute. “We live in a smaller, more technological, and increasingly fast-paced world in which we don’t always have the time to be in front of our computers. Whether you’re in the aisle of a home improvement store or in the waiting room at the doctor’s office, finding third-party certified low-emitting products is now as easy as ever.”

    The mobile site can be especially useful at the point of sale, Bloech adds, when shoppers are trying to decipher “green” claims on product packaging and want assurance that those claims are backed up by an independent, credible organization. And for architects and designers, in particular, the site can maximize efficiency and convenience when specifying low-emitting products.

    “Our mobile site saves time and effort, giving buyers the answers they’re looking for and the peace of mind they need—no matter where they are, no matter when.”

    Visitors to GREENGUARD’s mobile site will be able to search for and view a product’s certification type, status, restrictions, image, description, and manufacturer contact information through the mobile product guide. They will also have access to basic information about the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute and its Certification Program.

    To visit the mobile site, visit m.greenguard.org.
