Creating a sustainable future requires a combined effort across the globe. BISSELL works closely with our retailer partners and suppliers to reduce environmental impacts throughout our products’ lifecycles; joint establishment of objectives and goals and coordinated implementation are critical to the success of these efforts. We also partner with external organizations such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and participate in industry initiatives to further the sustainability agenda.
BISSELL is proud to have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice label for over 30 of our cleaning formulas. Products with the Safer Choice label help consumers identify and select products that perform well and are safer for human health and the environment, without sacrificing quality.
We’ve made an ongoing effort to limit our environmental impact and design products that help consumers be more eco-friendly. BISSELL portable and upright deep cleaning formulas, as well as most manual formulas, contain biodegradable detergents and have no phosphates, dyes, optical brighteners or heavy metals. In fact, we were named a “Champion Formulator” in the DfE program's Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative, which recognizes BISSELL industry leadership in developing environmentally friendly floor-care formulas.
Additional information on the EPA’s DfE label and what it means is available from the EPA website.
EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Safer Choice label signifies that the product's formula, as BISSELL has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on BISSELL, its integrity and good faith, for information on the composition, ingredients, and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any BISSELL non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the product's human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Safer Choice Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.
We partner with our customers and return centers for full truck utilization. The result? A more efficient shipping model - one that’s environmentally friendly. Our transportation efforts have made BISSELL an EPA SmartWay certified transportation partner.
