California Green Chemistry Initiative

California Green Chemistry Initiative

On Oct. 1, California implemented a law whereby companies that manufacture certain consumer products may have to research safer product options (i.e., less toxic or nontoxic ingredients). Starting in April 2014, California - through its California Safer Consumer Products Law, also known as the Green Chemistry Initiative - will be identifying classes of consumer products and directing manufacturers of those products to look to reformulate them using green chemistry.
