Green Labels In China Vs. Green Labels in the US

A few weeks back, Inhabitat had a very interesting piece on green labels in the US entitled IS IT GREEN?: Eco-Labels and Certifications

Shortly after that, Leigh at Crossroads made a trip to an organic conference in Shanghai with Julian at Green Leap Forward, and put together a report on the labels that they found there.

A very interesting counterpiece to Inhabitat’s, and clearly some important lessons for both sides.
