On July 16, 2014, EPA announced it is soliciting comments on its Design for the Environment (DfE) Program's logo redesign. The Agency will consider the information gathered from this notice and other sources as it selects a logo for the DfE Program that accurately communicates the Program's efforts to advance human and environmental health protection through safer products.

EPA would like the DfE logo redesign to achieve the following:

* Better convey the scientific rigor and benefits of the Program (e.g., safer for human health) with a logo that is easier to display on products, materials, and in digital media;

* Increase consumer and purchaser recognition of products bearing EPA's Safer Product Label; and

* Encourage innovation and development of safer chemicals and chemical-based products.

EPA will hold two listening sessions via webinars on this topic to give the public the opportunity to provide feedback on draft logo designs. The webinars will be held on Monday, August 4, 2014, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (EDT); and Tuesday, August 5, 2014, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (EDT). To participate in any of the webinars, you must register no later than 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, August 1, 2014. To register for the webinars, visit www.epa.gov/dfe/label.


Possible designs that EPA would like comments on are available online. A copy of the notice is available online.
