CleanGredients (a project of the nonprofit GreenBlue) supports EPA’s Safer Choice program by providing product formulators access to a database of market-ready safer chemical ingredients pre-screened by third-party toxicologists and EPA against criteria established by Safer Choice. Recently, CleanGredients launched a new website, highlighting the role it plays in supporting the Safer Choice program.
Design for the Environment
EPA’s label is a useful tool for consumers and companies.
The world’s largest retailer, Walmart, announced today it would begin disclosing chemicals in many product categories while phasing out approximately ten chemicals from products, in favor of safer alternatives. It also announced that it will pursue EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) imprimatur for some of its private label products. The disclosure practices will begin in 2015 and apply to cleaners, personal care products, cosmetics and baby care.
