What if you were told that a whopping 95% of all products that claim to be "green" are misleading? Well, a new report by the Underwriters Laboratory of Canada sampled 5,296 products in stores across the U.S. and Canada and found just that.
The big issue here is that products are able to make claims without any proof, and not only that, some products are just plain vague and misleading about how "green" they actually are. In fact, the total number of "green" products has risen 73% over the past year, of course as the study shows, some of which are not so "green" at all. Luckily, within that number is a rise in products that actually are "green."
