RE: Suspected SPAM: State Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Programs



I was going to say the same thing Melinda said, but because she said it,
I will add: flag and question the purchase and use of products/services
you've identified as causing high priority problems. Make them justify
that copper-containing drain cleaner while the local POTW is above
copper limits.

Buy electric or hybrid electric vehicles (or natural gas). We have many
in our fleet, but the lack of natural gas fueling prevents us from
converting more of  the fleet. Melinda Dower NJDEP Office of Pollution

I have a hypothetical question from a Region VI state agency...I know
you guys love this kind of question :-)

If a state agency were to change one thing about their purchasing, what
should it be?

A committee for Texas' state agencies that focuses on environmental
preferable purchasing wanted to see which of their purchases has the
highest impact.

What would be a good starting point and what are some of the things that
are more complicated?

Feel free to list as much ideas as you want.  The more ideas the better.
