  • EPA Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative - Champions
    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).
