GREENSBORO, NC -- You see the catch phrases:
"All-natural", "eco-friendly" and "made from recycled materials."

Funny-- those descriptions could be about the product you're buying or about the package it's in!The government doesn't have clear definitions on these terms so companies can use them at will.

2WTK looked for ways to answer your questions about green marketing claims.And found our friends at Consumer Reports have an answer.

One of the easiest things to do is separate the specifics from the generic. Look for the package that says 75% recycled materials versus simply made from recycled materials.

When you have more time to research check out a Consumer Report's website called Greener Choices. You can search by label, by product or by the organization that claims to certify the product.
