PRLog - Sep. 17, 2012 - Today marks the first day of National Pollution Prevention Week.  Pollution Prevention Week is annually the third week of September.  Pollution Prevention Week is a time when businesses, environmental groups and citizens can join forces for a common cause.  By sharing information about pollution prevention, businesses can become more competitive, businesses and government can realize cost savings, and environmental quality can be enhanced.

The theme for Pollution Prevention Week 2012 is “Safer Chemicals for a Safer World”, which embodies a national effort for safer alternatives to chemicals of concern.  This is to ensure the safety and health of workers and communities.  Using safer chemical alternatives also provides companies with a marketing edge over their competitors.  

The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR), the largest organization in the United States solely focused on pollution prevention, has several events planned throughout the week.  NPPR will honor leaders in pollution prevention on Wednesday, September 19 during their annual awards the Most Valuable Pollution Prevention Awards (MVP2).  September 20th NPPR will host a webinar entitled, Engaging Your Supply, with presenter Steve Walker, Insights Director with World 50.  NPPR will end Pollution Prevention Week co-sponsoring a webinar with the New York State Pollution Institute that will be focused on the U.S. EPA’s Design for the Environment program.  

Pollution Prevention Week is the third week of September, September 17th – 23rd, 2012.  To learn more about Pollution Prevention Week activities visit the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable’s website at www.p2.org.
