We Are Proud Producers of Green Seal
Certified Products


A “green” cleaning product isn’t a cleaning product at all if it doesn’t WORK.  Which is why we’re proud to have over 85 years of both science and experience behind us.

Von Schrader detergents are certified by Green Seal as safer for people and the planet.

About Green Seal

Green Seal is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to safeguarding the environment and transforming the market place by promoting the manufacture, purchase and use of environmentally responsible products and services. Founded in 1989, Green Seal provides science – based environmental certification standards that are credible, transparent and essential in an increasingly educated and competitive market place. As the leading certification body, Green Seal has pioneered identifying and promoting environmentally preferable products.

A member of the Global Ecolabeling Network {GEN}, Green Seal is a multi-attribute program; it looks at the entire life cycle of product from the raw materials used to make it to whether it is recyclable or disposable.

Standards must meet the US Environmental Protection Agency {EPA} requirements, International Standards Organization {ISO} requirements and the requirements of third party certifiers.

Green Seal is listed under approximately twelve state purchasing policies, and numerous municipalities purchase green products based on Green Seal certification.

Green Seal has worked closely with the US Army, the US Department of Energy, the US Department of Interior and the U.S. Postal Service. Products that have Green Seal certification are also listed in the state of New York’s purchasing guidelines for schools.

Marketers recognize “green” as a buzzword, and can be attracted to the sales that might be lured in by making false or exaggerated environmental claims.  A reputable third-party certification body is useful in substantiating claims.  People look for the Green Seal; we have it for all of our carpet detergents.  Our certifications re-enforce the VS brand’s commitment to making hard-working products that are safer for people and the planet, and to remaining a leader in the marketplace.
