GLRPPR Sector Resource: Do You Want Your Receipt? How Simple Steps Can Reduce Use of and Occupational Exposure to BPA and BPS in Thermal Receipt Paper [webinar archive]

Title:
Do You Want Your Receipt? How Simple Steps Can Reduce Use of and Occupational Exposure to BPA and BPS in Thermal Receipt Paper [webinar archive]

Abstract:
Are you a cashier? Own a business that uses thermal receipt paper? Manage point-of-sale operations or sustainable purchasing? If so, you may have wondered how to respond to news that thermal receipt papers are often coated with endocrine active chemicals BPA or its chemical cousin, BPS. Whatever your business -- from one-register coffee shops to grocery stores, bookstores, or national retailers -- you can take actions that will make a measurable difference. Madalyn Cioci from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will help you understand the issue and offer practical steps you can take to reduce exposure to these chemicals. Jolene Parker from Minneapolis' Linden Hills Co-op will describe the challenges faced and successes achieved her business when they changed their receipt handling procedures. The information and case studies presented are the result of a partnership project which tested thermal papers for concentrations of BPA and BPS and measured how much chemical and paper could be eliminated through a variety of actions. Includes links to the webinar recording, presentation slides, and MPCA's project page.
