Welcome to Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), which runs Australia's only independent, not-for-profit, multi-sector ecolabelling program and is the only Australian member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN).
Learn the benefits of environmental certification and how GECA helps individuals and organisations improve the sustainability of consumption.
GECA’s Product Database is a tool to help you choose goods and services that are better for the environment.
You can search thousands of sustainable products by either:
Selecting a product category followed by a product type (for example ‘building and interiors’ then ‘paints’ ) and/or selecting a supplier
Typing in keywords (for example ‘task chair’ )

A new, revised standard for Adhesives, Fillers and Sealants from Good Environmental Choice Australia is now out for public comment. The new standard has updated criteria and now recognises joint sealants and fillers, with a stronger focus on industrial and commercial adhesives.
With the release of the new GECA Textiles and Leather standard, as well as heightened consumer awareness surrounding where our clothing comes from, it makes sense that more people want to know how they can buy more ethical fashion.
