Master: Product Categories.


Note that many products listed in the subcategories below (e.g., Baby and adult diapers in subcategory, Medical and hygiene products), are also listed/indexed in the subcategory, Baby & Child care, indexed in the product category, Health care. Another example is Food service products (below), which includes product subcategories -- cans, cartons, and containers -- that are also listed/indexed in subcategories, Cans, Cartons, and Contains, which are indexed in the product category, Packaging.

For such products -- the belong on multiple (realistically, it likely won't exceed two) product category lists/indices -- the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) assessments pages on WikiCarbon can and should be tagged to both lists/indices.
