Planting of plantations of palm oil, which may be in as many as 1 in 10 cosmetics products, can result in significant deforestation of tropical rainforests and threatens the survival of endangered species such as the orangutan and Sumatran tiger. The RSPO, which was established in 2001, is committed to promoting the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through co-operation within the supply chain and open dialogue with its stakeholders.

EPA Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative - Champions
Under the Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI), EPA's Design for the Environment (DfE) Program recognizes environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to use safer surfactants in all their products. Safer surfactants break down quickly to non-polluting compounds and help protect aquatic life in both fresh and salt water. Nonylphenol ethoxylates (also known as NPEs) are an example of a surfactant class that does not meet the definition of a safer surfactant. The Design for the Environment Program has identified safer alternative surfactants through partnerships with industry and environmental advocates. These safer alternatives are comparable in cost and are readily available. CleanGredients is an on-line resource for finding safer surfactants (visit www.CleanGredients.org).
