CleanGredients Named A 2015 EPA Safer Choice Partner Of The Year

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that GreenBlue is a winner of the 2015 EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year award in the “supporter” category. EPA developed the Partner of the Year Awards to recognize Safer Choice stakeholders who have furthered the safer chemistry and safe product goals of the Safer Choice Program. According to the EPA, “Winners have demonstrated active and exemplary participation in and promotion of the program.”

“The Safer Choice program has made significant contributions to the green chemistry field by creating a consistent methodology to evaluate and identify chemicals capable of meeting functional and market requirements with the lowest inherent hazard possible,” said James Ewell, Sustainable Materials Director of GreenBlue. “The program’s emphasis on partnering with industry has demonstrated how valuable public/private partnerships can be for finding solutions to complex problems. GreenBlue partnered with the EPA in 2006 to create CleanGredients, a resource that helps formulators find suppliers whose products can meet Safer Choice’s robust criteria, while also reducing time-to-market and product development costs.”
