Ecover versus the European Eco-label

According to Ecover, the restrictions to gain an European Eco-label are not severe enough and the surveillance after obtaining the label is very poor. A manufacturer can receive the Eco-label after passing an examination of the European Union Eco-labelling Board (EUEB). That is why Ecover performed several tests on fifteen products, all in possession of the Eco-label. They discovered only two products passed the tests successfully even though they still contained harmful phosphates. Ecover does not own an Eco-label, however, the company claims her standards are much stricter. As a result the consumer confusion grows, they do not know what to believe anymore.
