OTTAWA, June 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Green Parents' List Inc.
(www.greenparentslist.com) offers manufacturers and distributors of children's
products regulated by the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
the opportunity to learn about the recently launched Green Parents' List Check
Mark(TM). Green Parents' List offers the use of the Green Parents' List Check
Mark(TM) for children's products that demonstrate compliance to the restricted
materials requirements specified in the CPSIA.
The CPSIA was enacted in August, 2008 in response to high-profile toy
recalls for unacceptable levels of lead (Pb) and phthalates. Under the CPSIA,
manufacturers or distributors of children's products in the U.S. are required
to confirm that their products meet lead (Pb), phthalates and other heavy
metal requirements, and in some cases provide third-party testing reports from
accredited laboratories as proof. Unfortunately, manufacturers and
distributors have not had a means of easily and effectively reassuring
consumers of their added efforts to provide safe products.
The Green Parents' List Check Mark(TM) provides manufacturers with an
identifiable mark to indicate that the product has passed an independent
review of materials compliance requirements by parents having scientific and
engineering backgrounds. Products that meet the review requirements can use
the Green Parents' List Check Mark(TM) on products, packaging, and promotional
material, and be listed on the Green Parents' List publicly accessible web
site list of reviewed products.
Please join us on July 14, 2009 at 3:00 pm Eastern for a free webinar to
learn about Green Parents' List Check Mark(TM), the Green Parents' List
verification process, and its advantages for your products.
