Sustainability: Partnerships

Creating a sustainable future requires global participation. BISSELL works with our retailer partners and suppliers around the world to reduce environmental impact through our products’ lifecycles – joint establishment of objectives and goals, and coordinated implementation are critical to the success of these efforts. BISSELL also partners with external organizations like the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and participates in industry initiatives to further the sustainability agenda.

Safer Choice Label

BISSELL proudly displays the EPA’s Safer Choice label on more than 30 of our cleaning formulas. The label helps consumers identify and select products that perform well and are safe for human health and the environment, without sacrificing quality. Our portable and upright deep cleaning formulas and our most natural formulas have biodegradable detergents and no dyes, optical brighteners or heavy metals. In fact, we have a “Champion Formula” in the Safer Choice program’s Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative, which recognizes the leadership BISSELL has in the floor care industry when it comes to developing environmentally-friendly formulas.

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 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 product’s 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 of 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.
