How Clean and Green Are Your Cleaning Products?

DfE Label“EPA allows safer products to carry the Design for the Environment (DfE) label. This mark allows consumers to quickly identify and choose products that can help protect the environment and are safer for families.

When you see the DfE logo on a product it means that the DfE scientific review team has screened each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects and that-based on currently available information, EPA predictive models, and expert judgment-the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class.

Product manufacturers who become DfE partners, and earn the right to display the DfE logo on recognized products, have invested heavily in research, development and reformulation, to ensure that their ingredients and finished product line up on the green end of the health and environmental spectrum, while maintaining or improving product performance.

EPA’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE) has allowed use of their logo on hundreds of products. These products are formulated from the safest possible ingredients and, in 2007, reduced the use of “chemicals of concern” by 80 million pounds, up from 59 million pounds in 2006.”
