Eco-friendly Products are referred to as the goods and services that people consume and or create, which inflict minimal or no harm to the environment. To make consumers more responsive, these kinds of produce are often marked with eco-labels. Eco-label is a labeling system for consumer-related goods, excluding food and medicine-food has a different form of eco-labeling-that are made in a manner that avoids damaging the environment. The labeling of eco-friendly products has been instituted in a number of developed states to aid in the protection of the ecosystem. However, for the reason that there is no single international standard for this concept, the International Organization for Standardization regards such labels too imprecise to be significant. Thus, eco-labeling is voluntary, and not enforced by law. An example of a labeling that is obligatory is the Green Sticker, mandated by law in North America where they are tagged on major pieces of equipment and automobiles.
For research and development of new products and technology, a simple way to assessing eco-friendly products is implemented through the planning stage, the manufacturing stage, and the production stage. There is a method called Life-Cycle Assessment which is used to quantitatively calculate the ecological effects of a product through all the phases it undergoes, including material procurement, construction, circulation, use, and disposal.
The first step to assessing and achieving eco-friendly products is to have a standard Life-Cycle Assessment program. Identifying and creating a desired concept to fit in to a product before starting with its research, blueprint, and or development is a good way to go. To correctly set objectives, pick out existing products which can be compared with the new product specifications, execute the standard method of assessment needed, and utilize the outcome. When the product specifications are clear, estimate the consumption of energy and perform the assessment standards to see whether the target will be attained. In producing a product massively, perform the Life-Cycle Assessment based on real measurement statistics such as yield and energy utilization, and evaluate the ecological responsiveness of the product.
