Green cleaning and the EPA’s Design for the Environment Program

Posted on March 29th, 2013 No Comments

In recent years, there has been a decided shift to focusing on products that are not only safe for consumers, but also safe for the environment. Known as environmentally-friendly or green, these products contain ingredients that are supposedly better for the environment or less likely to cause it harm. However, how can you know when a product is truly “green?”

While many cleaning products tout the label “green,” only some have the DfE label. The Design for the Environment (DfE) program was implemented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help consumers more easily identify products that are truly safe for the environment. Through rigorous screening and testing, the DfE label graces only products that have been shown to have the least possible impact on the environment.

Specifically, the DfE program has targeted cleaning products, creating an extensive list of criteria and requirements that cleaning products must meet in order to receive the DfE label. From testing each ingredient in the product to analyzing how the ingredients work together, the DfE ensures that only those cleaning products that have and are predicted to have a negligible impact on the environment is given this “green” label.

Thus far, the DfE has awarded their label to nearly 3,000 products.

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
