The cost of recycling of the product must not exceed the value of its recycled materials. In addition, the products must reduce the use of raw materials by including maximum amount of recycled materials and components. Moreover, they must be free of hard-to-recycle hazardous materials and other materials that hinder recycling process.

The 2020 DFR award winner was Lexmark for its design of toner cartridges, 95% of which are said to contain at least some postconsumer recycled (PCR) plastic content. The previous winners of the prestigious award include HP, Coca-Cola, Dell, LG, Nestle Waters North America among others.
