EPA McCarthy's cuddly pitch for safe-cleaning products

Even a Tea Partier set on defunding the Environmental Protection Agency might have a tough time saying no to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy's adorable dog Emma.

Yeah, we know you don't want the government telling you what to buy, or who to vaccinate, or how soon in life to let your kids practice with automatic weapons down at the firing range.

But Emmy just wants to help you keep your floor clean without harmful chemicals. Maybe we can start the dialogue at that level--three feet below the conference table--and work our way up to nuclear disarmament. Waddaya think?

As for cleaning products with EPA's Safer Choice label, they'll be hitting the grocery
shelves this Spring and Summer. McCarthy explains it all in the video above and Emma approves the message.
