The U.S. EPA will recommend the adoption of a policy that allows suppliers to make valid claims of “environmental preferability” in relation to the marketing of disinfectants and sanitizers.

Specifically, EPA officials are expected to recommend that the Agency allow suppliers to make factual claims of environmental preferability in conjunction with disinfectants and sanitizers, according to Marty Monell of EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP).

“I am very pleased to see this development from EPA that will make it easier for Green consumers and manufacturers to clearly identify ‘greener’ disinfectants which in turn will help eliminate confusion in the marketplace and accelerate Green cleaning in critical segments, such as health care, schools, and others with vulnerable populations,” said Stephen Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group.
