Bissell Homecare was recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) program. Bissell was awarded "Champion" status in the program's Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI).

The SDSI recognizes environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to the use of safer surfactants. Champion status is the highest level of recognition offered under SDSI. Recipients are invited to an awards ceremony, are listed on the EPA SDSI Web site as a Champion, and are granted rights to use a special logo in their product literature to help explain their participation in the program.

According to the company, Bissell invests in research, development, and reformulation to ensure that its ingredients and finished products are better for families and the environment, while maintaining or improving product performance. The company noted that Bissell does not use phosphates, dyes, heavy metals, and optical brighteners in its full-size deep-cleaning formulas, a practice which reportedly creates greener, more earth-friendly products.
