EPA Recognizes Wegmans As Safer Choice Retailer

JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. -

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Wegmans Food Markets as a Safer Choice Retailer for the fourth year in a row. 

EPA’s Partner of the Year Awards recognize organizations for demonstrated leadership in furthering safer chemistry and products, and promoting the Safer Choice label.

To qualify for a Safer Choice label, a product must meet the EPA's standard of human and environmental health criteria. When this label appears on a product, it means the EPA has evaluated each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects.

“We’re committed to offering effective cleaning products that are Safer Choice-certified whenever possible because we believe it’s the right thing to do,” said Dave Tantillo, Wegmans category merchant. “Because Safer Choice makes it easy for consumers to find cleaning products that are safer for them, their families, and the environment, it is the seal of approval we want our customers to know, understand, and trust.”
