Pollution Prevention Week

Please join us in marking Pollution Prevention Week as we celebrate the progress we have made in creating a cleaner environment and gear up for the work ahead.

Pollution prevention, or P2, is a critical part of protecting our children and families from health threats in the air we breathe, the water we drink and swim in, the products we use and the communities we call home. It is also an essential part of strengthening our nation’s green economy and building more sustainable communities. Pollution prevention efforts also help to fuel innovations and new jobs while giving consumers options for greener, healthier products.

As part of those efforts, the US EPA has unveiled a new tool, the Greener Products website to help consumers learn about products that are better for their health and our environment. The Greener Products site will enable people to search for everyday items such as home appliances, electronics and cleaning products recognized by programs like WaterSense, EnergyStar and Design for the Environment. It is another resource for consumers to find choices that will protect their health and the environment – while also saving money.
