Here's What Symbols on Cosmetics Labels Mean
The Green Dot
The "Green Dot" is rarely actually green - more often black or white. But regardless of its hue, the interlocking arrow trademark demonstrates the company is a member of a recycling and recovery scheme which deals with packaging waste. "All companies in Europe have a legal obligation to recycle and recover packaging waste, usually via a specialist company", says the Green Dot's licensing company. Often confused with the recycling symbol, it instead means simply that the company has complied with packaging waste legislation.
