Energy Star is a voluntary program established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect the climate through increased energy efficiency. The program was created in 1992 under the Clean Air Act to develop, evaluate, and demonstrate nonregulatory strategies and technologies for reducing air pollution.

In 2005, Congress enacted the Energy Policy Act, which established a voluntary program for labeling products and buildings that meet energy efficiency standards. As a result, the Energy Star label was established to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging parents and caregivers to check all window coverings for exposed or dangling cords, which pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children.

To heighten public awareness of window cord dangers, the council has declared October National Window Covering Safety Month.
