GREENGUARD Gold Certified

Safer Choice Certified
Products that carry the Safer Choice label have been carefully evaluated by the EPA scientists to ensure they contain ingredients that are safer for both human and environmental health. A product that contains safer ingredients lowers the risk to children and adults from hazards like cancer, neurotoxic and developmental effects, which can affect growth and learning, allergic reactions, and many other potential harms. These same products are better for indoor air and have safer ingredients for families, pets, communities, and the environment. Safer Choice certified products are less toxic to fish and other aquatic life and they break down more quickly through natural processes, so they are less likely to become part of the food chain or damage the ecosystem.
