Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
earthpure organics™ has developed a new and innovative product rating system to help consumers make value-based purchase decisions - eco-scale™ will display a product's rating of organic, sustainable, and social good, as well as provide consumers with a straightforward way to evaluate products and manufacturers. earthpure organics™ is urging other manufacturers and industry leaders to adopt eco-scale™ as a consumer awareness standard within the United States. Using a simple numbering system format, eco-scale™ rates important factors such as: non-GMO ingredients, biodegradability, levels of post consumer content, certified organic ingredients, SB12 compliance, fair trade certified, low glycemic sweeteners, renewable resource, low carbon footprint, alternative energy support, and others. The combined valuation will be displayed on the front label of products, helping consumers make informed choices.
"As leaders in the evolution of organic and sustainable business, our team thought it was imperative to offer a simple path for consumers to understand the impact of their everyday purchases. We have been committed to producing products that are certified organic, fair trade sourced, socially responsible, and market competitive - the next logical step for us was to convey those standards to the consumer within an easy to understand numbering system," states Paul Frantellizzi, Founder and Managing Partner of earthpure organics™.
