What is Safer Choice Standard?
Safer Choice is an optional labeling program established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in the 1990's. It encourages cleaning product manufacturers to use chemicals that take into consideration the environment and human health. A new logo came out in 2015 making it easier for consumers to identify products that meet the standards.
The program's early years focused on producing analytical documents and technical resources. In the mid 2000's, labeling products that met a set of higher standards began. In 2015, the new Safer Choice logo came out. The logo helps consumers identify products that meet standards addressing human and environmental health.
