Abstract
Eco-labels illustrate powerful tools of consumer-driven environmental protection and show that green-washing can be stopped through soft law approaches. This article compares Germany’s Blue Angel and India’s Ecomarks as soft-policy examples. The success of eco-labeling depends on the awareness level of the population, the efforts by the respective government to market the concept and the support of regulatory authorities to influence consumer decisions.
