EPA Information

One Biotechnology has partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in developing many of its products under the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program, formerly known as the Design for the Environment (DfE) program.

The U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program parallels worldwide interest in environmental safety and sustainability. The program’s purpose is to help identify and develop environmentally safer products.

Once a product passes the specifications of the EPA, the manufacturer is allowed to display the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice logo on their product. According to the EPA, this logo “allows customers to quickly identify and choose products that can help protect the environment and are safer for families.”

In order to pass U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program requirements, a product must undergo a rigorous assessment by third party profilers and the EPA. This assessment carefully screens each ingredient in the product for any potential human health and environmental effect. The review covers not only the ingredient, but also its chemical structure, to see how it could impact the environment and people.

Only products that are made of the safest possible ingredients are eligible for approval. According to the EPA, “Only products that meet the Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human health and environmental criteria, area allowed to carry the Safer Choice label.”

Since 2003, One Biotechnology’s products have had Safer Choice recognition. One Biotechnology has products recognized by the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program in the following classes: Drain Maintainer, Grease Trap/Lift Station Maintainer, Septic System Treatment. Under certain requirements, One Biotechnology's Safer Choice recognized products are available for private label programs.

The U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Safer Choice logo signifies that the formula for this product, as One Biotechnology has represented it to the EPA and the NSF, a third-party profiler, contains ingredients with more positive health and environmental characteristics than conventional products. The U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program relies solely on One Biotechnology, its integrity and good faith, for information on the composition, ingredients, and attributes of this product.

"EPA/Safer Choice has not independenlty identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of Osprey Biotechnics inc. non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the product's human health and environmental chqaracteristics, as specified in the Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding."
