After many months of stringent testing, we are pleased to announce that DUST/BLOKR® SB is now certified as a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency EPA Safer Choice dust control product. The EPA Safer Choice program was created to help consumers, businesses, and purchases find products that perform and contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment. Products with the Safer Choice label have met extensive requirements set forth by the EPA that include use of safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing quality or performance. It also means that every ingredient in the product has been carefully evaluated by EPA scientists for safety and performance.
What the EPA Safer Choice label means
A product with the Safer Choice label contains ingredients that:
- Meet EPA’s Safer Product Standards.
- Meet performance standards.
- Help protect people, pets, and the environment.
- Are safer for people, pets, and the planet.
- Are safer for workplaces and communities.
- Are safer for fish, aquatic life, and waterways.
Participation in the EPA Safer Choice program is voluntary. It is up to individual companies to pursue this distinction for their products. Although it was a rigorous process, pursuing this label was a meaningful pursuit for our team. DUST/BLOKR® is made of a natural and organic blend of sugars, starches, and minerals. All ingredients used in DUST/BLOKR® are part of the safer chemical ingredients list. When used on roads and soil, the product poses no adverse effect on the environment, for people nor for the vehicles and equipment used during application. We are proud that DUST/BLOKR® is one of the only EPA Safer Choice dust control / dust suppressant products on the safer choice list.

This is yet another step in making environmentally-friendly dust suppressants the norm in the industry, rather than just an alternative.
EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Safer Choice label signifies that the product’s formula, as Cypher Environmental has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on Cypher Environmental, its integrity and good faith, for information on the product’s composition, ingredients and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of Cypher Environmental’s non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the product’s human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Safer Choice Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.
