Taiwan's EPA Launces Eco-Friendly Product Web Site


Taiwan's Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) recently partnered with the Consumer Foundation to launch a green products site. The EPA has been encouraging the development of environmentally friendly products since 2002 when they initiated a program to provide a green consumption label to products that passed the screening process. Sales of these products have not done as well as the EPA had hoped, but they believe that by providing a unique Web site devoted to environmentally-friendly items they will help drive the market. The site features business equipment such as CCD projectors, home electronic devices such as air conditioners, cleaning products and various building materials. Over three thousand products, offered by over thirty manufacturers, will be available at a discount during the first week of Web site operation. Via Taiwan Headlines
