Working Together for a Healthy Future : P2 Week 2016

WASHINGTON, DC – Today marks the first day of National Pollution Prevention Week 2016.

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 2016 is “Working Together for a Healthy Future”, which describes the underlying goal of Pollution Prevention and the millions of people who work tirelessly every day to ensure a healthy future for our people and our planet.

The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR), the largest organization in the United States solely focused on pollution prevention, has several announcements planned throughout the week and NPPR will honor leaders in pollution prevention on Wednesday, September 21 through the annual Most Valuable Pollution Prevention Awards (MVP2).

Pollution Prevention Week is the third week of September, September 18th – 24th, 2016.  To learn more about Pollution Prevention Week activities visit the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable’s website at www.p2.org and the USA EPA P2 Week site.
