Church & Dwight Honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2022 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award

EWING, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the maker of ARM & HAMMER™ Laundry products, is proud to be recognized for its efforts in promoting safer chemistry and consumer choice and received a Safer Choice 2022 Formulator-Product Manufacturer Partner of the Year Award. Church & Dwight is among 26 Safer Choice winners in the 8th annual U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice awards this year.

“ARM & HAMMER™ Laundry offers value choices that are better for our consumers, their families and the planet,” says Laurie Kirschner, Senior Director of Marketing for ARM & HAMMER™ Laundry. “Long before the industry agreed to remove phosphates from detergents, we were the first to do so back in 1970. We continue to maintain our integrity by furthering our commitment to creating products that are better for people and the environment.”

Grounded in the EPA’s 50+ years of experience in evaluating the human health and environmental characteristics of chemicals, the Safer Choice program assesses every ingredient in a product for safety in addition to reviewing pH, performance, and packaging. ARM & HAMMER seeks to utilize only safer ingredients in certified products including ARM & HAMMER Baby Laundry Detergent and ARM & HAMMER Clean & Simple Laundry Detergent, each containing fewer than 10 ingredients and are free from unnecessary chemicals, dyes, phosphates, GMOs, added preservatives, brighteners, and parabens.

Additionally, the EPA Safer Choice-certified products contain safer ingredients without sacrificing quality or performance. Church & Dwight U.S. manufacturing facilities are Green-e certified; the Safer Choice award recognizes the 100% certified renewable electricity used to manufacture ARM & HAMMER detergents. As a Safer Choice partner since 2015, Church & Dwight is among 350 partners who produce nearly 2,000 Safer Choice-certified products, encouraging consumers to make safer and more impactful choices.

“Cleaning and other products made with safer chemicals – like those certified by the Safer Choice program – help protect workers, families, communities, and the planet,” said EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention Deputy Assistant Administrator for Pollution Prevention Jennie Romer. “This year, we’re pleased to recognize a variety of organizations for their support of safer chemistry and sustainability, including organizations that have worked to make these products more affordable and accessible to all.”
