Subject: Satellite Forum on Business Waste Prevention - Host Site Opportunity

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's WasteWise Program is inviting
business service organizations, federal agencies, environmental and other
interested groups to host downlink sites for a national satellite forum,
Waste Prevention Pays: Businesses Cut Costs by Cutting Waste.

This free, interactive satellite program will be broadcast live on June 17,
1998, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (E.T.) and will help businesses and other
organizations identify and implement money-saving waste prevention
strategies. Waste Prevention Pays will feature representatives from three
WasteWise companies who have been instrumental in helping their companies
reap the environmental and economic
benefits of waste prevention.

Call 1-800-EPA-WISE or visit the Web site at
for a free coordinator's kit that includes everything you need to locate a
site and organize and promote the forum. For further information on Waste
Prevention Pays, call 1-800-EPA-WISE or visit the Web site at

Featured panelists will include:

Target Stores, a national chain of over 800 retail stores. Working closely
with its vendors, Target has saved millions of dollars by reducing packaging
material and the labor costs associated with packaging. Target also profits
from a range of waste prevention efforts, such as paperless purchasing and a
salvage program for remainder merchandise.

Stonyfield Farm, Inc. A manufacturer of nationally-distributed yogurt and
ice cream products, Stonyfield Farm saved money through a range of waste
prevention activities. The company sells unusable food products for use as
animal feed, conducts office supply swaps, and participates in Design for
the Environment training programs.

CITGO Petroleum Corporation. CITGO, a refiner, transporter, and marketer of
gasoline, has saved thousands of dollars by providing company phone books,
publications, and forms on line. Other waste reduction strategies at CITGO
include reuse programs for wood pallets and transport packaging, and
employee *swap* days.

Ken Brown, a nationally recognized waste analyst who will share *lessons
learned* from his work helping hundreds of businesses implement a range of
creative, cost-saving waste reduction strategies.
