Environmentally friendly products are designed to minimize negative impacts on the environment, by reducing waste and replacing plastic products. Here are four main characteristics to assess these products:

  • Recyclability: Allows the product to be used multiple times and be recyclable, reducing waste in the environment.
  • Natural materials: The product materials are natural and do not contain microplastics, for example, paper straws, loofah sponges, sproutable paper, etc.
  • Biodegradability: The product can quickly decompose in the natural environment and does not produce harmful substances.
  • Human health-friendly: The product does not adversely affect human health during use.

To be recognized as environmentally friendly, products must have the “Eco-Label” certification from the Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment.
