We all want our children to have a great start in life.
When we use sustainable and environmentally friendly resources in their learning spaces, we help build their respect for the environment. They’re also able to learn and grow in cleaner air and with low-health impact surroundings.
All GECA certified products are assessed for their impact on the environment, but we also look at any impact that products have on human health. We’ve already certified over 3,500 products you can use in your classrooms that are constructed to be healthier for your children.
Many manufacturers choose cost savings over safety, using chemicals that aren’t good for people to breathe or touch. Even the paint on your walls may be harming them, releasing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) for years after the paint has dried.
We help manufacturers find ways to reduce the impact on health that their products can have – where you see the GECA ecolabel you can trust that the product will be a better choice for everyone (especially your little ones) and for the environment.
By teaching children that green spaces are good to live in, and to be aware of their choices early on, they’ll already know the benefits of healthy, environmentally responsible products when they come to make their own decisions about how they live and work.
The standards we provide help your children to learn about how the spaces we live and work in can affect the environment. Studies have shown that students at green aware schools are more environmentally aware than those at conventional schools.
