California launches the nation's first non-profit dedicated to developing strong standards for safer, greener consumer products.

A new Green Products Innovation Institute has just been launched in California, and will be the nation’s first non-profit dedicated to developing strong standards for safer, greener consumer products. The Institute is backed by people from the public and private sectors including politicians, actors and educators. Green plastics, green clothes, green this, green that. How environmentally friendly is it all really? The institute hopes to standardize and promote sustainable products and share the information with the public.

Guests:
