Gov. Doug Ducey has designated the week of Sept.18 through 24 as Arizona Pollution Prevention (P2) Week.
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality(ADEQ), through its P2 Program, encourages individuals, schools and businesses to participate in Arizona P2 Week and learn how to incorporate ways to improve the environment into daily routines.
“As one of our nation’s first pollution prevention programs, ADEQ’s P2 Program benefits both our participants and our state by supporting production processes that improve environmental quality and economic competitiveness,” ADEQ Director Misael Cabrera said. “Now in our 25th year, we’re demonstrating that ADEQ’s P2 Program in Arizona is creating an environment in which new processes and technologies are helping industry to reduce pollution while also enhancing operational efficiency and business productivity.”
Every weekday during P2 Week, ADEQ will offer valuable information, tools and resources on its Facebook and Twitter sites and on its website. Each day will focus on one reduction theme such as trash, transportation, food and resources.
ADEQ also will host two free webinars showcasing real-world examples of how participants have reduced waste and pollution while saving money.
ADEQ will also offer an overview of its Voluntary Environmental Stewardship Program.
