The next time you buy Alexandria mouldings and accessories, you may notice our Eco label and a list of green attributes.
This product is telling you that it was designed and manufactured in the spirit of environmental protection and sustainability. We want our customers to have the information they need about a product readily available so they can make the best choice for themselves and the environment.
Because we know there can be a lot of confusion out there when it comes to green products, we have chosen to focus on products that are third-party certified. This gives you, the consumer, confidence that what you are buying is recognized worldwide as being part of a sustainable and ecologically friendly world. No products are perfect, but we believe that by providing you with the information, you are able to make the decisions that works best for you.
