Safer ChoiceAt the CEH we know how difficult it can be to find the safest products on the market for our family's health and the environment. The EPA's "Safer Choice" program takes the guess work out of shopping for safer household products.
We all care about making our homes and workplaces safer. But when it comes to cleaning and other products, it’s hard to know which ones contain safer ingredients. That’s why EPA created the Safer Choice label – to help you find products made with ingredients that are safer for our families, pets, workplaces, and the environment.
Benefits of Safer Choice
Products that carry the Safer Choice label have been carefully evaluated by EPA scientists. Every ingredient must meet strict safety criteria for both human health and the environment, including carcinogenicity, reproductive/developmental toxicity, toxicity to aquatic lifer and persistence in the environment.
Products made with safer chemicals also can improve indoor air quality because fumes from cleaning products can linger long after they have been applied, which can aggravate asthma and other respiratory conditions. Source- Safer Choice Fact Sheet
