[Sorry for cross-postings] Thanks to the help of many on this listserv,
our organization is just about ready to help introduce an ordinance on
the purchase of recycled-content products for a local governmental
body. However, some of the staff we've been working with have brought
up concerns about how much such a policy would cost. I'm interested in
documentation or other resources that compare recycled-content products
to virgin products. I realize that this is a complex question that
involves size of purchase, product availability and many other factors.
However, I would love to see any information that others have drawn
together (e.g., side-by-side cost comparisons) that disspell the myth
that buying recycled means breaking the bank.

Thank you; feel free to respond directly to me. Mehrdad Azemun
