OMI Industries announced that its Fresh Wave IAQ Gel and Liquid meet the safer product standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice Program – a voluntary program that works with manufacturers to develop safer chemical products that also meet high performance standards.

The Safer Choice label allows consumers to quickly identify and choose effective products that are safer for families and pets and help protect the environment.

Fresh Wave IAQ eco-friendly odor management solutions are engineered from a proprietary blend of natural ingredients, including water and plant oils from lime, pine needles, aniseed, clove, and cedarwood. Devoid of masking agents and harsh chemicals, Fresh Wave IAQ products are safe and environmentally friendly to use in any commercial facility.

In addition, the science behind Fresh Wave IAQ has been tested, patented and proven to be effective by members of academia, as well as by third-party organizations such as American Foundrymen’s Society, German Foundry Institute and the Southern Petroleum Institute.

“Safe odor management solutions are vital for everyone from families, to patients to hotel guests to employees,” said Amanda Daluga, National Sales Manager at OMI Industries, provider of Fresh Wave IAQ. “We are excited that our natural odor eliminating product lineup has been recognized as a safer choice.”

When you see the Safer Choice label on a product, it means that EPA’s scientific review team evaluated every ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects and allowed only the safest to be used. Safer Choice products do not contain known carcinogens, reproductive or developmental toxicants – and all components, including dyes and fragrances, are reviewed against Safer Choice criteria.

Safer Choice empowers manufacturers to meet health and environmental sustainability goals. Types of products that have earned the Safer Choice label include household cleaners, laundry detergents, dishwasher detergents, carpet cleaners, and car, RV and boat care products. As of 2015 over 2,250 products carry the Safer Choice label and the list of products and partners continues to grow.
