EPA Reveals Redesigned DfE Logo

May 13, 2022

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a new Design for the Environment (DfE) logo.

The updated logo will appear on certified antimicrobial products like disinfectants and sanitizers within the next year. According to the EPA, the DfE logo helps consumers and commercial buyers identify antimicrobial products that meet the health and safety standards of the normal pesticide registration process required by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as well as other rigorous criteria required by the agency.

“Protecting the health and safety of our families and our homes is central to EPA’s mission,” said Michal Freedhoff, EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “EPA is excited to take the DfE program to the next level with a bold, new logo to further empower consumers to make environmentally and health-conscious buying decisions.”
