Seal of Approval products not only clean well but they are friendly to both the indoor and outdoor environments. Seal of Approval/Green Label vacuums help improve indoor air quality because they keep dirt and dust that is suctioned up within the machines.

Cleaning agents receive Green Chemical Certification under the Seal of Approval program after their manufacturers attest to meeting environmental friendliness from a list of nationally accredited green product certifiers.
