The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Albertsons Companies, parent company of Jewel Osco, as the winner of the Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award for the second year in a row. Safer Choice label was added to select products in our Bright Green line of earth-friendlier private-label products, available exclusively in our stores.                                        

“We’re committed to our partnership with the EPA on this important initiative to ensure the safety and sustainability of the products that people use in their homes each day,” said Jonathan Mayes, SVP of External Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer. “It is a true honor to receive the Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award and an honor to help consumers make safer choices every day.”

Safer Choice utilizes the expertise of the EPA’s New Chemicals Program to evaluate the environmental and human health impacts in every product, allowing only the safest ingredients to be used. Glass Cleaner 1
