OAKLAND, Calif. , Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX) was named a 2020 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award winner by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for outstanding achievement in the manufacturing of products that are safer for families, pets, workplaces, communities, and the environment. This is the company’s third time receiving this award in the formulation/product manufacturing award category.

The EPA’s Safer Choice Program is a voluntary program that brings together stakeholders to advance the use of safer chemicals and promote sustainability in products. Products can earn the Safer Choice label if they meet EPA’s Safer Choice Standard , which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria.

Currently, 21 Clorox products carry the Safer Choice label, an increase from 19 products since 2018. Recently, Clorox Compostable Wipes and the Real Simple® product line earned the Safer Choice certification.  

“We are thrilled to once again be recognized by the EPA as a Safer Choice Partner of the year,” said Lisa Pankiewicz , Vice President, Global Stewardship – R&D for Clorox. “Consumers are looking for effective cleaning options that do not sacrifice on health or sustainability. The Safer Choice program provides trusted validation that we are delivering on that promise.”

Clorox has played an active role in the Safer Choice Product Labeling program and its predecessor program, Design for the Environment, since 2007. Since that time, Clorox has collaborated with the EPA to advocate and support this critical program, which is in line with the company’s IGNITE ESG goals to be a leader in responsible product stewardship. The company was previously recognized as a Safer Choice Partner of the Year in 2016 and 2017.

The 2020 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Awards were presented during a virtual ceremony on September 24, 2020 .
