The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that it is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Awards.

The awards aim to recognize the leadership contributions of Safer Choice partners and stakeholders who have “shown achievement in the design, manufacture, selection and use of products with safer chemicals” over the past year.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that it is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Awards.

“As part of EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment, the Safer Choice program partners with businesses to help consumers and commercial buyers identify products with safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing quality or performance,” the EPA said.

“In support of the Biden-Harris Administration’s goals, EPA especially encourages submission of award applications that show how the applicant’s work in the design, manufacture, selection and use of those products promotes environmental justice, bolsters resilience to the impacts of climate change, results in cleaner air or water, or improves drinking water quality.”

Safer Choice is an EPA Pollution Prevention program that includes practices that reduce, eliminate or prevent pollution at its source—such as using safer ingredients in products. The program certifies products containing ingredients that have met specific human health and environmental toxicological criteria.

The Safer Choice program allows companies to use its label on certified products that contain safer ingredients and perform, as determined by expert evaluation.

There is no form require to submit this year; instead, candidates should notify Safer Choice of their interest and submit support information to Safer Choice Support and Linda Rutsch.

The deadline is May 31. Winners will be recognized at an award ceremony in the fall.
