Introduction to the State Electronics Challenge
Join Lynn Rubinstein from the State Electronics Challenge to learn how your organization can reduce its environmental footprint through improved management of electronic office equipment. Presentation slides and supplemental links are available at http://www.glrppr.org/meetings/#webinars. The State Electronics Challenge is a voluntary national program, open free of charge any state, tribal, regional, or local government agency, as well as any K-12 school or non-profit organization. The SEC promotes environmental stewardship of computers, monitors, and imaging equipment -- from purchasing green office equipment through power management, paper use reduction, and responsible end-of-life management -- resulting in measurable reductions in energy, greenhouse gases, solid and hazardous waste, and associated costs. Watch this introductory webinar to learn how your organization can join the Challenge and benefit from the program's proven free technical assistance, action plan, implementation tools, and environmental benefit calculations.
Do You Want Your Receipt? Reducing Occupational Exposure to BPA and BPS
Are you a cashier? Own a business that uses thermal receipt paper? Manage point-of-sale operations or sustainable purchasing? If so, you may have wondered how to respond to news that thermal receipt papers are often coated with endocrine active chemicals BPA or its chemical cousin, BPS. Whatever your business -- from one-register coffee shops to grocery stores, bookstores, or national retailers -- you can take actions that will make a measurable difference. Madalyn Cioci from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will help you understand the issue and offer practical steps you can take to reduce exposure to these chemicals. Jolene Parker from Minneapolis' Linden Hills Co-op will describe the challenges faced and successes achieved her business when they changed their receipt handling procedures. The information and case studies presented are the result of a partnership project which tested thermal papers for concentrations of BPA and BPS and measured how much chemical and paper could be eliminated through a variety of actions.
