  Federal Trade Commission's  -Guidelines:
 Environmental Claims: Summary of the Green Guides
General Environmental Benefit Claims
Marketers should not make broad, unqualified general environmental benefit claims like "green" or "eco-friendly."  Broad claims are difficult to substantiate, if not impossible.
Marketers should qualify general claims with specific environmental benefits.  Qualifications for any claims should be clear, prominent, and specific.
When a marketer qualifies a general claim with a specific benefit, consumers understand the benefit to be significant.  As a result, marketers shouldn't highlight small or unimportant benefits.
If a qualified general claim conveys that a product has an overall environmental benefit because of a special attribute, marketers should analyze the trade-offs resulting from the attribute to prove the claim.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Claiming "Green, made with recycled content" may be deceptive if the environmental costs of using recycled content outweight the environmental benefits of using it.

Carbon Offsets
Marketers should have competent and reliable scientific evidence to support carbon offset claims.  They should use appropriate accounting methods to ensure they measure emission reduction properly and don't sell them more than once.
Marketers should disclose whether the offset purchase pays for emission reducations that won't occur for at least two years.
Marketers should not advertise a carbon offset if the law already requires the activity that is the basis for the offset.
Certifications and Seals of Approval
Certifications and seals may be endorsements. According to the FTC’s Endorsement Guides:
Marketers should disclose any material connections to the certifying organization. A material connection is one that could affect the credibility of the endorsement.
Marketers shouldn’t use environmental certifications or seals that don’t clearly convey the basis for the certification, because the seals or certifications are likely to convey general environmental benefits.
To prevent deception, marketers using seals or certifications that don’t convey the basis for the certification should identify, clearly and prominently, specific environmental benefits.
Marketers can qualify certifications based on attributes that are too numerous to disclose by saying, "Virtually all products impact the environment. For details on which attributes we evaluated, go to [a website that discusses this product]." The marketer should make sure that the website provides the referenced information, and that the information is truthful and accurate.
A marketer with a third-party certification still must substantiate all express and implied claims.

Compostable
Marketers who claim a product is compostable need competent and reliable scientific evidence that all materials in the product or package will break down into — or become part of — usable compost safely and in about the same time as the materials with which it is composted.
Marketers should qualify compostable claims if the product can’t be composted at home safely or in a timely way. Marketers also should qualify a claim that a product can be composted in a municipal or institutional facility if the facilities aren’t available to a substantial majority of consumers.
Degradable
Marketers may make an unqualified degradable claim only if they can prove that the "entire product or package will completely break down and return to nature within a reasonably short period of time after customary disposal." The "reasonably short period of time" for complete decomposition of solid waste products? One year.
Items destined for landfills, incinerators, or recycling facilities will not degrade within a year, so unqualified biodegradable claims for them shouldn’t be made.
Free-of
Marketers can make a free-of claim for a product that contains some amount of a substance if:
1.  the product doesn’t have more than trace amounts or background levels of the substance;

2.  the amount of substance present doesn’t cause harm that consumers typically associate with the substance; and

3,  the substance wasn’t added to the product intentionally

It would be deceptive to claim that a product is "free-of" a substance if it is free of one substance but includes another that poses a similar environmental risk.
If a product doesn’t contain a substance, it may be deceptive to claim the product is "free.of" that substance if it never has been associated with that product category.
Non-Toxic
Marketers who claim that their product is non-toxic need competent and reliable scientific evidence that the product is safe for both people and the environment.
Ozone-Safe and Ozone-Friendly
It is deceptive to misrepresent that a product is ozone-friendly or safe for the ozone layer or atmosphere.
Recyclable
Marketers should qualify recyclable claims when recycling facilities are not available to at least 60 percent of the consumers or communities where a product is sold.
The lower the level of access to appropriate facilities, the more a marketer should emphasize the limited availability of recycling for the product.

If recycling facilities for a product are not available to at least 60 percent of consumers or communities, a marketer can state, "This product may not be recyclable in your area." If recycling facilities for a product are available to only a few consumers, a marketer should use stronger qualifying language: "This product is recyclable only in the few communities that have appropriate recycling programs

Recycled Content
Marketers should make recycled content claims only for materials that have been recovered or diverted from the waste stream during the manufacturing process or after consumer use.
Marketers should qualify claims for products or packages made partly from recycled material – for example, "Made from 30% recycled material."
Marketers whose products contain used, reconditioned, or re-manufactured components should qualify their recycled content claims clearly and prominently to avoid deception about the components.
Refillable
Marketers shouldn’t make unqualified refillable claims unless they provide a way to refill the package. For example, they can provide a system to collect and refill the package or sell a product consumers can use to refill the original package.
Made with Renewable Energy
Marketers shouldn’t make unqualified renewable energy claims based on energy derived from fossil fuels unless they purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match the energy use.
Unqualified renewable energy claims may imply that a product is made with recycled content or renewable materials. One way to minimize the risk of misunderstanding is to specify the source of renewable energy clearly and prominently (say, ‘wind’ or ‘solar energy’).
Marketers should not make an unqualified "made with renewable energy" claim unless all, or virtually all, the significant manufacturing processes involved in making the product or package are powered with renewable energy or non-renewable energy, matched by RECs.
Marketers who generate renewable energy – say, by using solar panels – but sell RECs for all the renewable energy they generate shouldn’t claim they "use" renewable energy. Using the term "hosting" would be deceptive in this circumstance.
Made with Renewable Materials
Unqualified claims about renewable material may imply that a product is recyclable, made with recycled content, or biodegradable. One way to minimize that risk is to identify the material used clearly and prominently, and explain why it is renewable.
Marketers should qualify renewable materials claims unless an item is made entirely with renewable materials, except for minor and incidental components.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Our flooring is made from 100% bamboo, which grows at the same rate, or faster, than we use it."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"This package is made from 50% plant-based renewable materials. Because we turn fast-growing plants into bio-plastics, only half of our product is made from petroleum-based materials."

Source Reduction
Marketers should qualify a claim that a product or package is lower in weight, volume, or toxicity clearly and prominently to avoid deception about the amount of reduction and the basis for comparison. For example, rather than saying the product generates "10 percent less waste," the marketer could say the product generates "10 percent less waste than our previous product."

 What is on the HORIZON ? U.S. Environmental Policy and Kyoto Treaty

 

The United States is moving toward a parallel program to the Kyoto Treaty,

…. progress is coming.
Global warming federal legislative outlook.

Individual States such as California , Oregon and Washington now have stronger Environmental Laws than do the Nation.
Potential climate changes impacts on California.

Eleven North Eastern States have formed the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, http://www.rggi.org

RGGI is organized to implement reduced carbon emissions and to initiate a Market Based CO2 Emissions  Credit Trading System in the United States .

The American Bar Association is sponsoring the  development of  the legal protocol for a USA   emissions trading program , similar to the free market Kyoto Carbon Credits program .  The U.S. Congress will mirror these guidelines.

This will hopefully enable Carbon Credits to be created by verifiable emission’s reductions within the U.S.A. and allow for subsequent carbon credit sales to further fund emissions reductions projects by The Green Cross.

 But the U.S.A. is years away from a National greenhouse gas reductions program and The Green Cross is moving forward now, with viable, real projects.




Cooperating Environmental Organizations

The Green Cross works with all other 501 (C) (3) Environmental Organizations in joining efforts and in supporting the funding of real physical projects which make a real impact on repairing and preserving our Environment .

 

We’re all in the same boat.

The old saying , “what goes around , comes around” is so true today.

The  emissions of one Country become a Global problem  for all.

It is time for the American people to join the rest of the World in combating

Global Warming , de-Forestation ,  the depletion of our fisheries , and

the contamination of our water.

The Green Cross Project Targets Air Pollution and Environmental Health

www.AmazonGreenCrossFund.org

 

The Green Cross only Targets and Funds Environmental Projects which create a Real Net Reduction in CO2 ( RNRCO2)

TROPICAL RAIN FOREST PRESERVATION;

The Green Cross works with governments to set aside land for preservation and exclusion from logging, mining, and road building, to assure an indigenous, local employment from renewable harvesting of the forests for products such as medicinal plants .

Details of a Rain Forest Preservation Project will soon be announced , with the first Green Cross Partner Country, involving the public's purchase of individual acre or acres, to amass large blocks of land, which will be placed into permanent conservation.

Individual contributions will be ear-marked, specifically for this project . The Lungs of the Earth, can then, therefore breathe more Oxygen into your air., forever.

FARM ANIMAL WASTE TO ENERGY
The Green Cross will be introducing electrical generating methane fuel burning facilities to the Animal Processing Industry to eliminate the farm's manure charged effluent from being leached into the estuaries, stream and rivers . The Green Cross Advisory Board Member Tobias Koch has years of experience in Methane Extraction and Methane fueled turbine electrical processing, under the Kyoto Protocol. Fish, which can not be eaten now, will once again grace your table.

CO2 REDUCTION In Ethanol Production:
The Green Cross has been working for the last few years with its European engineers, to promote the development of their Patented Bio-Ethanol Plants and bring that advanced technology into the USA, and around the World. The name Bio-Ethanol is earned from the process of producing the ethanol production plant's greatest percentage of its own electricity, from its own gases, with substantial excess going to the grid. This process eliminates the large demand for external electricity, or natural gas to produce it, which has caused no net gain in energy costs for the 100s of newly constructed Ethanol Plants.

This Patented process lowers the cost of Ethanol Production by reduction in external energy demand.

These Austrian engineered Bio-Ethanol Plants produce little or no CO2, compared to the large CO2 emissions spewing from the newly-constructed Ethanol Plants in the USA. In addition, a high-grade organic fertilizer is produced and returned to the field.

This Patent will be brought to the USA to retrofit the newly built Plants, and reduce Green House Gasses from the USA. This Green Cross Project will reduce millions of tons of CO2 from being emitted into your atmosphere.



SYNTHETIC DIESEL
The Green + Cross  worked in 2006-2008  to help develop a Synthetic Diesel made from Free Fatty Acids v.s. plant based esters, such as corn, soy and palm oils. 

Engineers around the World have for decades tried to develop this fuel, but all have fallen short , in one respect or another.

This Patented diesel process from Europe delivers a defined diesel at 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of current bio-diesel being produced from soy, corn, palm oil, etc.

The finished diesel burns cleaner than all mineral based diesel, and after blending reduces most all the CO2 and NOx, and sulphor , due to a spectrum of all like-kind molecular chains.

This defined diesel has a lower cold plugging point than current bio-diesel and mineral based diesel and is shown to produce more energy.

This Green Cross Project will eliminate millions of tons of CO2 and NOx and Sulphur from being emitted into your atmosphere. The new Environmental Laws of California may not be possible to meet WITHOUT the presence of this Synthetic Diesel Fuel.

CEMENT REPLACEMENT IN CONCRETE The Green Cross is lucky to have as its Project Development Civil Engineer , an inventor of a replacement material for the Cement Powder , in the production of Concrete. For each and every ton of cement produced for concrete , an equal one ton of CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere, Worldwide. This replacement material for cement in concrete is superior to current concrete is several factors; It has high tensile strength as well as only the current compresive strength of concrete. Its3rd has high thermal properties of not transferring heat or cold, as does current concrete. (Lowers air conditioning and heating costs)
GeoPolyCrete costs 1/3 rd of current cost of concrete, allowing homes of 300 sq.ft. to be built for as little as $300. U.S.

( Produces World Peace through providing one of the 3 basics ; food , clothing , and shelter ).

Irrigation projects in deserts can now be built to grow food, where concrete was cost prohibitive.

High rise, Roadways, Runways, can all be built from this new material .

This material is certified by renown Structural and Civil Engineer's tests 

This material will revolutionize the construction industry , in the USA and around the World.

And , The Green Cross will eliminate millions of tons of CO2 from being emitted into our atmosphere by its promotion of Projects utilizing this Cement Replacement Material.

In all cases, These Green Cross projects create a REAL NET REDUCTION in CO2. (RNRCO2)

Your Support of the Green Cross Environmental Project Fund is the key to success for these Net CO2 Reduction Projects
