Betco® is proud to announce a partnership with Safer Choice, an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Pollution Prevention program. Safer Choice helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform and contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment.

6 of the sustainable Green Earth® products have earned this distinguished certification, which is exceptionally reputable due to high standards and backing from the EPA. The following products meet these stringent criteria and qualifications:

The Safer Choice program reviews multiple aspects of a product before assigning the Safer Choice label, which signifies the product meets the Safer Choice Standard.

  • Ingredients: EPA reviews all chemical ingredients, regardless of their percentage in the product. Every ingredient must meet strict safety criteria for both human health and the environment.
  • Product performance: Products must pass category-specific performance standards defined in the Safer Choice Standard.
  • Packaging: Sustainable packaging must meet the criteria defined in the Safer Choice Standard.
  • pH: Products must meet pH standards that minimize the potential for skin and eye irritation or injury.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC): VOCs are restricted to minimize indoor air pollution and associated respiratory concerns.
