EPA Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative

The Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI) was founded by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) as a way to acknowledge companies that "green" their products and services.[1] Detergents that are considered safer are detergents without alkyiphenol ethoxylates,more commonly known as NPEs, which is toxic to aquatic life.[1][2] These safer surfactants breakdown quickly into non-polluting compounds so they do not affect aquatic life.[1][2] Companies that produce, use, or distribute safer surfactants can qualify for the stewardship.[1][2] The initiative is administrated by EPA employee David Difiore.
