Buy Recycled! Environmentally Preferred Purchasing (EPP)

Businesses can help create markets for recycled products — and often save money — buy purchasing furniture, office supplies, and other materials that have at least some percentage of recycled content. For example, there are several high quality paper companies providing 100% post-consumer recycled-content paper at or very near the cost of typical office paper.

Buy Recycled Program

CalRecycle offers several programs within the state that feature environmentally preferred purchasing. Visit their Buy Recycled Program or Environmentally Preferable Purchasing page for more information on how your business can benefit.

Recycled Content Products

This searchable database displays recycled content products, including company information

RecycleStore

One source of products that fit the bill for recycled content is the RecycleStore Businesses in one of the state’s many recycling market development zones market and sell their products here. For example, you could purchase office furniture for your business that is constructed from recycled materials!

Environmentally Preferable Purchasing

US EPA maintains an extensive page of resources supporting environmentally preferable purchasing and recently launched a Greener Products portal allowing user-specific greener product searches.
