P2 Week 2001 - Vermont

Organization(s) Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description Vermont DEC and Small Business Development Center contributed to the dialogue on Environmentally Preferable Purchasing by collaborating with the Center for a New American Dream, Green Seal, and others to present a national green cleaning conference call entitled, "A Cleaner World." The conference call attracted more than 100 participants and allowed Vermont to share its experience in selecting and securing a contract for purchase of environmentally preferable custodial cleaning chemicals.

Vermont also celebrated National P2 Week by making Pollution Prevention the Highlight of the Month on the Agency's website.

Agency employees and Vermonters visiting the website were asked to celebrate National Pollution Prevention Week by examining their own lifestyles; including the everyday choices a person makes with regard to transportation, resource use and waste management. Visitors to the website were urged to utilize various Environmental Impact Calculators as one way to gain a valuable perspective on some of the environmental impacts of their everyday activities, as well as to discover ways to reduce their personal environmental impacts.
