(1) 20% reduction in energy consumption during product manufacturing, transportation, and/or use;

(2) 20% reduction in the net disposal weight of primary packaging with no increase in secondary packaging weight;

(3) 20% increase in product efficiency due to concentration, extended use, or increased functionality.

(4)Their claims meet FTC guidelines for environmental marketing statements.
