Home Depot Announces Eco-Labeling Program

[ Georgia ] After years as environmental groups‘ poster child for irresponsible retailing, Home Depot today announced a new program to highlight environmentally friendly products on its shelves. Home Depot has labeled more than 2,500 Eco Options products already, including all-natural insect repellents, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, cellulose insulation, front-load washing machines, and certified sustainable forestry products. By 2009, Home Depot expects the Eco Options label to grow to 6,000 products.
