We have an opportunity to improve the quality of our world for future generations. We can make choices about where we work and how we work that can have an enormous impact on our environment. With that said, we need to work together to establish and maintain standards that others can apply to conduct their businesses in a more environmentally friendly manner.


The goal is to establish and adopt a set of community-created standards that non-manufacturing businesses can use as a guideline to reduce negative environmental impact.

Logos are available for download and display, indicating support of the TurnLeaf Standards page.
The TurnLeaf™ EcoAware™, EcoFriendly™, or EcoChampion™ logos must link to our TurnLeaf Standards page to encourage others to adopt or challenge our standards. The honor system will be applied: If you think your company meets the standards, then display the logo. Let your conscience hold you accountable!
