Promoting Pollution Prevention Through Information Exchange

The Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) has completed its Simplifying Environmentally Preferable Purchasing project, which was funded by the Roy A. Hunt Foundation. As part of the project, NERC developed Model Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Specifications and Purchasing Guidelines for paper, toner cartridges, and office supplies. NERC also created fact sheets on each of the EPP Model documents, and a press release about the newly developed resources. In addition, NERC presented a webinar on the importance of EPP and the EPP model documents.

Topic Hubs provide an in depth look at pollution prevention in a specific topic or industrial sector. GLRPPR has converted several of its Topic Hubs to LibGuides, which allowed for integration of some social features.
