PPRC PUBLISHES RESOURCE GUIDE
FOR GREEN PURCHASING
The Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center (PPRC) has posted
an on-line resource guide that will help businesses and government agencies
implement environmentally preferred, or "green" purchasing programs.
Green purchasing is a strategy that more businesses are using to reduce
costs, improve supply chain management, win over customers, and distinguish
themselves in the marketplace. The public sector is turning to green
purchasing as a way to build markets for environmentally preferred products,
and to set an example by "walking the talk."
The PPRC resource guide, on line at
http://www.pprc.org/pprc/pubs/topics/envpurch.html, describes the benefits
of green purchasing, and offers an annotated compendium of resources. They
General resources from government agencies, non-profit organizations, trade

programs, product guides, "how-to" product selection tools, policies, and
other helpful material.
