BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION

CleanGredients® is a unique partnership between GreenBlue, the U.S. EPA, and industry that benefits suppliers and formulators alike in a number of important ways.

BUILDS ON MARKET DEMAND FOR "GREEN" PRODUCTS

Demand is steadily increasing for cleaning products that contain healthy and safe ingredients. This is a market opportunity, and many companies seek to meet this demand by creating new, "green" products.

CREATES OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRODUCT RECOGNITION BY U.S. EPA

CleanGredients streamlines participation in the U.S. EPA's Safer Choice label by listing ingredient chemicals that are "pre-screened" against the Safer Choice Criteria. CleanGredients helps suppliers to market – and formulators to identify – chemicals that will support formulation recognition by the U.S. EPA.

HELPS PURCHASERS TO IDENTIFY "GREEN" PRODUCTS

CleanGredients helps purchasers by: 1) increasing the number of products bearing the U.S. EPA's Safer Choice label, and 2) providing valuable information by which to compare competing products.


HELPS FORMULATORS AND SUPPLIERS TO COMMUNICATE

Formulators currently do not have reliable, up-to-date information about new "green" ingredient chemicals. Suppliers do not have a standard format to describe the "green" advantages of new ingredient chemicals. CleanGredients provides an "online marketplace" of green chemicals to address these needs.

REDUCES COSTS FOR SUPPLIERS AND FORMULATORS

CleanGredients is an online "one-stop shop" for green chemicals that reduces research, development, and marketing costs. For suppliers, it provides a centralized marketing venue for products. For formulators, it reduces time spent searching for appropriate ingredients, significantly increasing speed-to-market.

AN EFFICIENT MARKET FOR GREEN CHEMISTRY ALTERNATIVES.

CleanGredients directly links chemical suppliers and formulators through an online database. Existing resources identify "known bad" chemicals; CleanGredients identifies preferable alternatives and provides supplier contact information, links to websites, material safety data sheets, technical fact sheets, and more.
