Several of Rubbermaid’s shelving and closet organization products have won the stringent GreenGuard Certification for Children & Schools. In order to achieve this level of certification, Rubbermaid’s products were screened for more than 10,000 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including formaldehyde and phthalates. The certification means that these products have passed rigorous tests that ensure they do not release potentially harmful chemicals into indoor air.
The GreenGuard site lists the products that won certification, which include:
- Closet kits
- FreeSlide shelving
- Linen shelving
- TightMesh shelving
- Ultra FreeSlide shelving
- Wardrobe shelving
These products are very popular for organizing closets and storage areas. You can now use them with further peace of mind, knowing that they are safe in your home and around your children without fear of VOC contamination in your indoor air.
