EU Outlaws Misleading Environmental Claims in Product Labels

“This law will change the everyday lives of all Europeans! We will step away from throwaway culture, make marketing more transparent and fight premature obsolescence of goods. People will be able to choose products that are more durable, repairable and sustainable thanks to reliable labels and advertisements.”

        Misinformation and disinformation are widespread on the issue of climate change and they are major obstacles towards progress in tackling the climate crisis.

          Some companies have come to the realization that most consumers prefer eco friendly products. This is evidence that people are now aware and ready to contribute towards environmental conservation. However, some companies mislead the population that their products are eco friendly or that they meet certain environmental requirements so as to boost sales. With this ban, companies that publish misleading environmental labels on their products can attract prosecution and fines. This is a welcomed move EU. Kudos!

                      A win for transparency and a leap toward a more eco-conscious consumer culture :)

                        @dickson_mutai Quite unfortunate that most companies take advantage of the consumer and lie to them through bogus product information.
