Design for the Environment (DfE) Label Redesign


Source: EPA
Related Topics: US Environmental Protection Agency

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Design for the Environment (DfE) Safer Product Labeling Program recently announced some exciting news— Over the next couple of months, DfE will be developing a more modern, compelling label to better communicate the program’s human health focus, scientific expertise, and the stringent health and environmental criteria that labeled products have met to earn the label. Our redesign goals include making the label more appealing and accessible to partners, easily displayed on the packaging of qualifying products, and more meaningful and memorable to consumers. We invite you to help us in this process by sharing your ideas for improving the effectiveness of the DfE label and messaging.

If you would like to learn more about the label redesign, we will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday, March 19th from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST to explain the redesign process, timeline and progress to date, and opportunities for engagement. The webinar along with the call-in number will be available via AdobeConnect at the following link:

With an updated label design, EPA believes that the DfE label will be poised to become a widely recognized and trusted symbol for safer, effective chemical-based products that help protect the health of people and the planet.

Your participation is important to our success. Thank you for your support!
