The SDSI is part of the EPA’s Design for the Environment program which works in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders to reduce risk to people and the environment by preventing pollution. The program focuses on industries that combine the potential for chemical risk reduction and improvements in energy efficiency with a strong motivation to make lasting, positive changes.
The SDSI was designed to recognize environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to the use of safer surfactants. Safer surfactants break down quickly to non-polluting compounds. A “Champion” recognition is based on whether the company documents a strategy and demonstrates that it only purchases products containing safer surfactants.
“Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System supports the EPA's Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative and is committed to purchasing and selling the safest products,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System. “We believe that producing the safest products possible is important to our role as stewards of public health and for promoting the quality of service that sets us apart.”
