MPCA’s Green Chemistry and Design staff are encouraging Minnesota businesses to voluntarily reduce the amount of thermal receipt papers they use and distribute to their customers. These papers typically contain relatively high concentrations of the chemical bisphenol-A or related chemicals.

The idea is catching on, and many businesses have made the change on their own. Check out these case studies:

GLRPPR's Sector Resources give you direct access to pollution prevention resources, funding opportunities, and events in a particular industry sector or topic. See what's been added most recently. If you want to stay up-to-date about new additions, we also have an RSS feed New Sector Resources RSS Feed.

You can also sign up for our twice-weekly newsletter, which links to all new content on the web site.

See also LibGuides related to pollution prevention and sustainability, particularly the Pollution 101 LibGuide, designed especially for those new to P2 technical assistance.

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.

View the converted hubs, as well as other LibGuides related to pollution prevention and sustainability, in the University of Illinois' LibGuides Community.
