To qualify for the Safer Choice label, a product must meet EPA’s Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria.The Safer Choice program currently has about 500 formulator-manufacturer partners who make more than 2,000 products for both retail and institutional customers.
Dropps has been a leader in the environmentally-oriented laundry detergent business since 2008 when Dropps laundry detergent pacs first received EPA Safer Choice (formerly Design for the Environment) certification. Available online at www.dropps.com, Dropps products ship directly to consumers in a 100% recyclable cardboard box, and the pre-measured pacs dissolve right in the wash. Way less plastic, space, and waste. Purchasing options include subscription wash plans as low as $4 per month, according to the company.
“We like think of ourselves as leaders of change in the cleaning industry,” said Dropps Founder and CEO Jonathan Propper. “As a company, our goal is to manufacture and distribute the safest and most effective unit dose household cleaning products. We no longer add colorants and dyes – we all know that color doesn’t clean and is not necessary for product efficacy. Last year, we introduced the safest and most sustainable package – a patent pending 100% recyclable and repulpable corrugate package that features a child safety locking mechanism and a SurfShield™ wax replacement for a water resistant package. It’s time to rid our landfills of plastic jugs and hard to recycle pouches.”
