5 Ways homeowners can impact the environment and save money.


The Eco Options program is built on these five pillars of living green:


The Home Depot’s core values are based on doing the right thing for our customers and associates, and this commitment extends beyond our stores to our communities and the environment. We partner with ENERGY STAR® and WaterSense® to promote products that save our customers energy, water and money – in 2016 alone we saved our customers $903 million in energy costs and 76 billion gallons of water. And because customers shouldn’t have to pay more for “green” products, we are partnering with our suppliers to improve the products we already sell – including addressing chemicals of concern and indoor air quality with our Chemical Strategy.

Whether you’re doing a large remodeling project or growing a garden, The Home Depot is your partner in environmental sustainability. Learn more about our Sustainability efforts .

Products Containing Methylene Chloride

Over the past few years, The Home Depot has led the industry in creating chemical standards for multiple product categories including carpet, paint, insulation, flooring, live goods and cleaning products. To build upon our strategy to maintain continual improvement in health and environmental safety for products, we have added many alternative chemical paint removers, and will phase out of paint removal products that contain methylene chloride and N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP) by the end of 2018.
