Libby Sommer, Environmental Scientist with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE), will talk about DfE’s efforts to inform and promote the use of safer chemicals. Under the DfE Safer Product Labeling Program, DfE allows the use of its logo on products that meet stringent green chemistry criteria. DfE recently added an ingredient disclosure requirement, making this the first labeling program of its kind to require such disclosure. DfE is also assessing alternatives to priorities chemicals such as BPA and brominated flame retardants, and will be assessing alternatives to phthalates.
