It’s Pollution Prevention Week!
September 18 – 24, 2017
Pollution prevention (P2) means reducing or eliminating sources of pollution to prevent damage to the environment while also eliminating the need for costly controls and cleanup.
EPA works with federal, state and local governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations, and the public to prevent pollution through a variety of voluntary initiatives and partnerships. P2 practices include modifying industrial production processes; using less toxic substances in manufacturing processes and products; using conservation techniques; and reusing materials.
