GoECOlife™ Shredder Carries Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Certified Product Label


SILVER SPRING, MD, February 4, 2010, Costco.com now sells the world’s first CarbonFree® Certified carbon neutral paper shredder, made by GoECOlife™. The paper shredder has earned Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Certified Label, the world‘s leading carbon neutral product label and the first in the U.S.

To earn the CarbonFree® Product Certification, the GoECOlife™ SOHO 8-Sheet ULTRA-QUIET™ Paper Shredder underwent a rigorous product life-cycle assessment performed by WSP Group to determine the carbon footprint. In addition to using energy-saving technology, GoECOlife™ reduced the remaining carbon footprint through support of Carbonfund.org’s third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects.


“We put our shredder through Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Product Certification because of its rigor and third party life-cycle assessment,” said Sam Lee, spokesperson for GoECOlife™. “The Certification provides a credible way for consumers to differentiate products that minimize their impact on climate change and the environment.”

“The CarbonFree® Certified Label provides a transparent and meaningful way for companies to provide carbon neutral products,” said Carbonfund.org President Eric Carlson. “We are proud to partner with diverse and leading brands like GoECOlife™ to make these products available to their customers and enable them to reduce their climate impact in their everyday purchases.”

The personal GoECOlife™ shredder utilizes an energy-saving technology that prevents vampire energy waste when the shredder is not in use and plugged in. The shredder is manufactured with materials that meet Restriction of Hazardous Substances standards (RoHS-compliant) and is packaged with recycled, partially recycled and/or biodegradable materials.

The shredder is available at Costco.com (online only), which is running a promotion on the GoECOlife™ SOHO 8-Sheet ULTRA-QUIET™ Paper Shredder, Item # 485883. The promotion runs through February and includes a $20 instant rebate, a 12-pack of CarbonFree® Certified GoECOlife™ Lubricant Sheets, an “Envy Green” Reusable Canvas Tote and a “Green Facts” Mouse Pad.
