Abstract: Labels serve the purpose of allowing consumers to make comparisons and informed choices from among products and or services in a category. Environmental labels focus primarily on consumption rather than production of goods. Organic labels specify a particular production method without necessarily requiring proof of environmental improvement. Ecolabels communicate the environmental impacts over the life cycle of the product – “from cradle to grave”
