Meets EPA Procurement Guidelines

Expert Advice - TheGreenOffice.com

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Comprehensive Procurement Guideline as part of its efforts to promote the use of materials recovered from solid waste. Buying products with recycled content ensures that the materials collected in recycling programs will be used again in the manufacturing of new products.

The EPA establishes a minimum percentage of recycled and post-consumer recycled content that manufacturers should meet for certain types of products.  Manufacturers that meet or exceed the minimum percentage of recycled content can claim to have met the EPA Procurement Guidelines.
