ASBC Honored as a Safer Choice Partner of the Year for the Third Year in a Row

ASBC is honored to receive its third annual Supporter of the Year award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice program. Awards recognize businesses and organizations that have advanced chemical safety through exemplary participation in, or promotion of, Safer Choice, which helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform well and are safer for human health and the environment.

EPA’s Safer Choice program “commends ASBC for its far-reaching outreach efforts, most notably, through its Companies for Safer Chemicals campaign, which engaged more than 7,000 companies at the national and state levels, introducing them to the program and its benefits.”

Safer Choice, a voluntary labeling program, epitomizes effective collaboration between government and the private sector. It signals to consumers that products certified under the program meet a higher, safer standard.

EPA honored ASBC and other winners, including ASBC-member companies Seventh Generation and Earth Friendly Products, at a ceremony in Washington, DC on May 15. This is the third year in a row ASBC has been recognized as a Safer Choice Partner of the Year.
