Big Box Store Removes Nine Chemicals From Store Shelves
In an effort to enhance sustainable options, the Home Depot has asked its manufacturing suppliers to exclude nine ingredients from their chemical offerings. According to a corporate announcement, Home Depot will require adjustments be made prior to 2022.
Chemicals that must be removed from product offerings are:
• Diethyl phthalates
• Dibutyl phthalates
• Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs)
• Trichloroethylene (TCE)
The big box store is committed to working with suppliers to improve products that impact indoor air quality. In fact, Home Depot already sells eco-friendly products that customers can use to contribute to green cleaning initiatives. Their Eco Options program helps identify environmentally preferred products backed by third-party certifications such as the EPA Safer Choice label.
