Healthy and Environmentally-Friendly Sleep with Blauer Engel
Lecture in german
The speaker will highlight the importance of the Blue Angel ecolabel and how it is perceived by consumers and procurers. Participants will hear about the advantages of the Blue Angel label for producers and retailers. The presentation will revolve around the criteria of the ecolabel and the question of why our sleep is healthier and more environmentally-friendly if we use bed products and home and household textiles bearing the Blue Angel. In addition, the speaker will explain the Blue Angel application process and what type of support companies can expect from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in cooperation with RAL gGmbH. The first producer of bed products granted the ecolabel will be mentioned. Because healthy sleep does not depend on bed products and bed linens alone, the speaker also will briefly introduce the standards in the Blue Angel family such as the Blue Angel for Low-Emission Upholstery, the Blue Angel for Low-Emission Furniture and Slatted Frames made from Wood and Wood Materials (DE-UZ 38) and the Blue Angel for Mattresses.
