Our History

In 2000, CSPA's new president saw the need for a signature product stewardship program to reflect the sustainability efforts of CSPA member companies.

Our Principles

In 2001, CSPA developed and launched Product Care as a comprehensive product stewardship program for each company and every product category represented by our association.

Our Stewards

All member companies embrace the Product Care principles. CSPA companies can also go further and make the voluntary commitment to become Product Care Stewards.

  • Product Care minimizes negative impacts on employees, on the communities in which we do business, on the environment, and on the companies that use our products. It has resulted in improved operations and a better bottom line.- Mark Cohen, Director of Labeling at NCH Corporation
  • It’s about protecting workers, users and the environment. It’s about eliminating things that shouldn’t be in the air and the water, and reducing solid waste.- Mark Cohen, Director of Labeling at NCH Corporation
