    Contribute to a healthy lifestyle and indoor environment by reducing toxins present in your home with environmentally-preferred cleaners.

DfE is now Safer Choice

The new EPA Safer Choice label replaces the DfE label. It’s the same program, just a new name and logo. When you see a product with the Safer Choice label, it means that every ingredient in the product has been reviewed by EPA scientists. Only products that meet EPA’s Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human health and environmental criteria, are allowed to carry the label.

Time for a green clean at The Home Depot

Cleaning your home can be an excellent step in going green. At the Home Depot, we pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly and offer many different eco options. We carry Designed for Environment (DfE)-certified products that can help reduce hazardous household waste created by some full-strength cleaners. Also, using organic cleaning products not only helps the planet, but also benefits you and your family. According to the EPA, nearly half of all illnesses stem from indoor pollution caused by ordinary cleaning products. We can help you reduce that risk with such organic solutions as green cleaning products and green cleaning supplies.
