Labelinfo.be is a database containing sustainability labels and trademarks. Founded in 2007, it is still constantly updated. People who want to make a conscious choice when buying products can research the labels on the website.
It contains labels related to building, electrical appliances, cleaning products, paper goods, packaging and lifestyle (including clothing).
The labels contain information on the environmental impact of the product or the social circumstances in which it was made. Other labels guarantee fair trade or say something about the quality, origin or composition of a certain product.
Yet not all sustainability labels are equal, and it’s not uncommon to be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of labels (both trustworthy and not). Some labels covered by Labelinfo.be are GOTS, Biogarantie, Ecocert Fair Trade, and so on.
