Dropps laundry detergent pacs are approved by the EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) program which recognizes products with safer chemistry.

Remember, Dropps are phosphate-free, chlorine-free and NPE-free, too! And talk about a smaller footprint! We use less water, use way less plastic, take up less space, cost much less to ship and leave tremendously less mess in our landfills. You’ll agree… every pac counts!

And to think, we started out trying to save some clothes… and it looks like we’re helping to save something even larger.

Some frequently asked questions from the EPA’s website: 

Why does EPA label products?

EPA’s mission is to protect the health of people and the environment. To further that mission, EPA labels products so that consumers can easily choose ones that are safer for people and the environment.  The program empowers consumers to protect their health and minimize impact on the environment through everyday purchasing decisions.  Using EPA’s chemical and toxicological expertise, the Design for the Environment program applies stringent criteria for health and environmental safety in labeling products with the safest possible chemical ingredients.

What does the Design for Environment label mean?

When consumers see the Design for the Environment (DfE) label on a product, they can be confident that the ingredients have been through a rigorous EPA review.  The label means that EPA scientists have evaluated every ingredient in the product to ensure it meets DfE’s stringent criteria. When people use Design for the Environment-labeled products they are protecting their families and the environment by making safer chemical choices.

Do Design for the Environment-labeled products work well?

Yes, in addition to meeting stringent safety criteria, every product with the Design for the Environment label has met high standards for performance.
