Ecolabels: One world, but not one word

March 17, 2008

There are lots of eco-labels for different purposes, and lots of words to name them.

Perhaps as more people write about ecological issues, the tags will help link more articles together.

This list is based on ecolabel in the GEMET Thesaurus(Eionet) and ecolabel on OmegaWiki, with additions as I discover them. Eionet is the European Environment Information and Observation Network. GEMET is their GEneral Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus.
