New York —
The Home Fashion Products Association alerts members and others that the Federal Trade Commission will hold a free Green Guides workshop on July 15 live in Washington and via webcast.
Geared toward the building and textiles industries, this third-in-a-series event keys on regulatory review of the "Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims," commonly known as the Green Guides.
The workshop will probe eco-claims and consumer perception of such claims. The Commission's first event examined the marketing of carbon offsets and renewable energy certificates; the second examined green packaging claims.
For more information on the July workshop, including the Federal Register notice, how to file comments, directions to the conference center and other info, visit: www.ftc.gov/bcp/workshops/buildingandtextiles/index.shtml. Comments to inform discussion at the workshop must be received by July 1.
We would love your feedback!
