Look for the mark and you'll find a safer product.
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a program to establish requirements for "green" cleaning products. Known as the Design for the Environment (DfE) Formulator Program, this program helps consumers identify which companies are producing sustainable products that are truly safer for the environment as well as human health.
NSF International was chosen by the EPA DfE program to assist in the product review process. Companies whose products are ultimately determined to meet the requirements of this program earn the right to display the DfE logo on the product's label. When you see this logo on a product, it means that the product lines up on the "green" end of the health and environmental spectrum without sacrificing product performance. It also means that each ingredient has been screened for potential human health and environmental effects and that, based on currently available health and safety data, the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class.
