To:Giurgiulescu
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:North Hollywood High School
Description: EPA has no legal authority to establish regulations to use packaging with less environmental impacts. EPA works with states, communities, and businesses to encourage voluntary reduction of solid waste and educates citizens to choose products with packaging that is less environmentally harmful. Citizens can contact packaging associations and manufacturers about packaging standards and encourage companies to not use packaging with negative environmental impacts. The Federal government buys products made from recycled materials and issues recommendations on buying products with recycled content and other favorable attributes. Some states have legislation regarding product packaging.
