BestwoodTM - Your Environmental Choice

The New Zealand Ecolabelling Trust is a voluntary, multiple specification based environmental labelling programme, which operates to international standards and principles.

Initiated and endorsed by the New Zealand Government, Environmental Choice recognises the genuine moves made by manufacturers to reduce the environmental impacts of their products and provides a credible and independent guide for consumers who want to purchase products that are better for the environment.
