EPA Safer Choice Award

ACME Markets Sustainability


May 31st, 2017


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Albertsons Companies, parent company of Acme Markets, 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.

The EPA developed the Partner of the Year Award to recognize Safer Choice stakeholders who have furthered the program’s goals. Acme Markets actively promotes the program with Safer Choice-labeled products in company stores across the country.

    As a regular shopper of Acme and an eco warrior i am so happy that you recognize the needs of our planet and our health. Congrats on your award and please keep growing the Bright Green line as it is pretty awesome. I use several products within that range and i find them not only effective but considerably lower priced than many places.
