EPA honours ACI as 2022 Safer Choice Partner of the Year
The US Environmental Protection Agency has named the American Cleaning Institute, the trade association for the US cleaning product supply chain, as a Safer Choice Partner of the Year in the program that helps businesses, purchasers and consumers find products that perform well and contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment.
ACI was recognised as an outstanding Safer Choice Supporter.
Throughout 2021, ACI met with EPA staff to better understand how the Association can support Safer Choice and provided a forum for EPA staff to share information about the program with ACI members.
"Many ACI member companies have products and chemistries that are recognised by the EPA Safer Choice program,” says Melissa Hockstad (pictured), ACI's president & CEO. “ACI is proud to have supported the program for over a decade through ongoing work with EPA staff.
"We look forward to continuing that work well into the future."
ACI also educated members, through a webinar and corresponding resources, on how programs like Safer Choice can show users that the ingredients in their products have been reviewed for safety criteria for human health and the environment. In turn, ACI created a resource to help users learn about certifications like Safer Choice.
ACI also enhanced awareness of Safer Choice through regular posts on its social media channels, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
