GLRPPR Sector Resource: Safer Choice (formerly Design for the Environment (DfE))

Title:
Safer Choice (formerly Design for the Environment (DfE))

Abstract:
For the past 15 years EPA's label for safer chemical products has been known as the Design for the Environment, or the "DfE," label. We spent more than a year collecting ideas and discussing new label options with stakeholders, such as product manufacturers and environmental and health advocates. Then we took our ideas to consumers and asked what worked best for them. The result is that in February 2015, the Safer Choice label replaced the DfE product label. The new Safer Choice label has a more modern look to help consumers, businesses and institutional buyers easily recognize products that have earned the label.

Finding cleaning and other products that are safer for you, your family, and the environment should be easy -- that's why we developed our new Safer Choice label. We all play a role in protecting our families' health and the environment. Products with the Safer Choice label help consumers and commercial buyers identify and select products with safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing quality or performance.
