More than 2500 products are now Design for the Environment authorized and protect human health and the #environment!

Design for the Environment allows manufacturers to put the DfE label on household and commercial products , such as cleaners and detergents, that meet stringent criteria for human and environmental health. Using these products can protect your family's health and the environment. Our Alternatives Assessments Program helps industries choose safer chemicals by providing an in-depth comparison of potential human health and environmental impacts of the chemicals they currently use or plan to use. For situations in which safer chemicals have yet to be identified as viable substitutes, our Best Practices Program shows workers how to protect themselves and their communities' health by using chemicals safely and minimizing exposures.
