P&G gives Tide a spin as an NFL sponsor
Procter & Gamble's Tide detergent has become a sponsor of all 32 franchise teams in the National Football League in a multiyear deal, beginning with the 2012 football season. "For us, the NFL's growing female fan base played a big role in developing the Tide sponsorship," said Sundar Raman, North American fabric-care marketing director. "It allows us to tap into America's passion for the NFL and fan loyalty toward their home teams."

Analysis: Commodities prices closely linked to detergent market
The prices of commodities used to manufacture detergents could increase significantly as the economic recovery takes hold and consumers start spending more on detergents, writes Mintec's Robert Miles. "The recent trend to reduce packaging and produce more concentrated products means that any [commodities] cost increase is now likely to be much more pronounced and potentially noticeable to the consumer as a result," he writes.

EPA testing plan lacks specifics, ACI says
The Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics recently announced plans to do more testing on chemicals on the market. Since the announcement, the EPA has been vague about the criteria it will use for testing, which is making it difficult for companies to provide the agency with detailed information or prepare for the assessments, said Paul DeLeo, senior director of environmental safety at the American Cleaning Institute.

Campaign to identify harmful cleaning products draws criticism
The American Cleaning Institute is criticizing efforts by the Environmental Working Group to highlight what they say are hazardous cleaning products on a "Hall of Shame." EWG ignores the research and development efforts that go into ensuring the safety of cleaning products, manipulates scientific findings, and defies common sense, ACI said in statement.

Target goes online to pitch eco-friendly products
Target is ahead of the pack when it comes to promoting its eco-friendly product lines, writes Leon Kaye. The retailer uses an online "magazine" to tell stories about its commitment to ethically and ecologically sourced goods, and to highlight green brands such as Method, Yes To and Burt's Bees. "Target's approach towards pitching its more socially responsible products is a great way to reach out to customers," Kaye writes.

A good cause can bring together brands, consumers via social media
Using social media to identify a brand with a worthy cause can help humanize the brand, even if the cause isn't something normally associated with a brand's product, Murray Newlands writes. It's also a good way to spark a conversation with consumers and improve a brand's image, he writes.
