Razer announced that two of their gaming mice have achieved ECOLOGO certification from global safety science leader UL.

Razer’s Basilisk V3 and DeathAdder Essential became the first gaming peripherals of their kind to gain such seal of approval.

The milestone came quite fittingly in time for this year’s celebration of World Environment Day.

ECOLOGO Certification program

UL’s ECOLOGO certification program looks at products and services and verifies them for reduced environmental impact.

According to UL’s website, the wide variety of criteria include:

  • Materials
  • Energy
  • Manufacturing and operations
  • Health and environment
  • Product performance and use
  • Product stewardship and innovation

For the two gaming mice, UL looked at several sustainability criteria, such as:

  • EU hazardous chemical restricted substance regulations compliance
  • Skin irritation and sensitization assessment
  • Repair and replacement management process
  • Requiring of selective waste treatment to service providers
  • Sustainable packaging

UL also inspected Razer’s facilities to certify that the company’s products were manufactured in environmentally responsible places.

Products which have gained ECOLOGO certification include all-purpose cleaners, hand sanitizers and soaps, furniture polish, and more.

The Razer Basilisk V3 is available starting at PhP 3,495 / SG$ 109.90 while the DeathAdder Essential is priced at PhP 1,995 / SG$ 49.90.
