No halogen chemistry
To cut a long story short, the halogens are a group in the periodic table consisting of five chemically related elements: fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine. Elemental halogens are dangerous and can potentially be lethally toxic. That’s the reason why Ecogarantie forbids the use of halogen chemistry in the labelled products.
A Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) refers to any organism whose genetic material has been altered using engineering techniques. The Ecogarantie specifications are very strict regarding the GMO’s. The use of GMO’s or GMO techniques in the production chain is strictly forbidden by Ecogarantie.
The transforming process of petroleum into petrochemicals is a very polluting process which releases toxic particles into the atmosphere and which damages nature. Moreover, when present in large quantities in a product, these substances can be dangerous for your health and the environment. As they are not safe for the ecosystem, Ecogarantie guarantees that labelled products do not contain such chemicals.
