Certified Vegan? Cruelty Free? Confused about green labels – now some help

I’ve been meaning to post about this but just hadn’t gotten to it.  I was reminded because of my earlier post on the sins of green washing.  Consumer Reports has launched an Eco Labels Center that will give you information on green label claims.  You can search by label, by label category, by product, by product category or by certifying organization.  For example, if you look in personal hygience, you can find out what the claims means of 100% vegan, alcohol free, allergy tested, etc.  Information is given as to the meaning of the label, whether it is used consistently, etc.  For example, for the label allergy tested, as I’ve previously blogged about, the label has little meaning.
