BISSELL® Approved to Use “Safer Choice” by United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Several BISSELL Consumable Products Land on List of EPA’s “Safer Choice” Products
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 22, 2015 – More than 30 BISSELL products, including the new line of Boost Carpet Cleaning Formula Enhancers and BISSELL 2X Pet Stain and Odor Formula, are included on EPA’s list of approximately 2,000 products currently qualified to include the new Safer Choice label.
According to the organization, the Safer Choice program was started to help “consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform well and are safer for human health and the environment.” Products with this label make it easier for consumers to feel good about selecting products with safer ingredients, without sacrificing quality.

Environmentally speaking, paper reduction by the company has saved more than 22,950 trees.
“We are honored to make EPA’s Safer Choice list with so many other great brands. It is implicit in our safety evaluation process that our consumable chemical products are family and pet safe,” said Mike Fryan, Associate Director – Consumer Product Attributes. “Additionally, the raw ingredient materials that we use are environmentally friendly and our products are always formulated with safety in mind.”
