                          Use this list to find environmentally preferred supplies typically
                          purchased by schools. The list of terms below can help identify
                                         “green” products from other vendors.




                                     “Green” Dictionary

Post-Consumer
       “Post-consumer” means that the product is made from recyclable material(s) collected for
       recycling from a business or home recycling container.


Pre-Consumer
      “Pre-consumer” means that the item is made from materials left over at the end of the
      manufacturing process, and not from materials collected for recycling from business or
      home recycling containers.


Green Seal
       Green Seal is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to safeguarding the
       environment and transforming the marketplace by promoting the manufacture, purchase,
       and use of environmentally responsible products and services. Green Seal follows the
       Guiding Principles and Procedures for Type I Environmental Labeling adopted by the
       International Organization for Standardization (ISO 14024).


Biodegradable
     “Biodegradable” means that the product is capable of being decomposed by biological
     agents, especially bacteria. However, even though a product is technically “biodegradable”,
     it does not necessarily biodegrade in a landfill. Products can remain intact for many years
     after they have been deposited in a landfill.


Non-toxic
     “Non-toxic” means that the product is not composed of or does not create poisonous or toxic
     materials that harm the environment or human health.


“Environmentally safe” and “environmentally responsible”
      These claims usually mean that the product or materials do not harm the environment.




      Disclaimer: The claims in the “Green attribute” column of this document are made by
      individual companies and are not certified by King County.
