Krud Kutter Named 2021 Safer Choice Partner of the Year

Sep 22, 2021

09/22/2021 | 05:31pm EDT Message : Rust-Oleum brand of cleaners earns EPA recognition Krud Kutter, a line of cleaning products from Rust-Oleum, has been chosen as a 2021 Safer Choice Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The announcement was made today as part of Pollution Prevention (P2) week. Krud Kutter won in the Formulator/Manufacturer category. The EPA said Krud Kutter earned the recognition by increasing its offering of Safer Choice-certified products by 19% and by focusing on using concentrates and refillable bottles to reduce plastic use and emissions. Additionally, Rust-Oleum displays the Safer Choice logo on all Safer Choice-certified products as well as on web pages, Facebook, Instagram, and catalog pages. “We work hard to create products that are tough on krud but gentle on nature,” said Melissa Grimm, brand director for cleaners at Rust-Oleum. “We’re thrilled and honored to be recognized by the EPA for those efforts.” The EPA also noted that Rust-Oleum has moved most of their production closer to distribution centers to reduce the use of fuel and is researching how to increase post-consumer plastic and recycled cardboard in packaging and shipping boxes. When the Safer Choice label appears on a product, it means the EPA has evaluated every ingredient in the product for potential human health and environmental effects. The product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class. For more information about the Safer Choice program, visit: http://www.epa.gov/saferchoice .
