Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
Did you attend the green purchasing session at the CRA Conference? Do you wish you had? Either way, you're in luck! Click HERE to link to the resources mentioned during the session.

Protect the environment with the power of environmentally preferable purchasing . Federal, state and local governments, as well as schools and universities are following legislative and policy mandates to help them achieve broader environmental goals through the purchase of high-quality green products. Individual citizens, businesses and nonprofits can also learn about EPP and how to buy environmentally-preferable products. 

Through the purchasing power of these entities, we can drive down the cost of recycled content and other green products and create viable markets for the recyclables collected in our communities. Join the challenge by making a conscious decision to purchase with the environment and human health in mind.
