Project Title & Description
Adopting Safer Chemistry in the Great Lakes Region
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-10. The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable will partner with the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable, Clean Production Action and the Great Lakes Green Chemistry Network to recruit 50-100 companies into a program that challenges companies to reduce their use of hazardous chemicals through source reduction measures. Expected outcomes include prevention of 2 million pounds of toxic chemicals from entering the Great Lakes ecosystem.
