To promote use of post-consumer recycled materials and cut down the use of virgin paper.
Create a written policy or enact a standard practice that requires the use of minimum 20% post-consumer recycled content paper for all janitorial paper products (including but not limited to: toilet paper, paper towels and seat covers).
Include requirement to purchase minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content janitorial paper upon creation of EPP policy (Purchasing Credit 1) or revise policy to include it. If EPP policy is not in place, create and implement separate policy addressing recycled content janitorial paper. Alternatively, train any staff responsible for purchasing on the requirement and ensure it is followed in practice.
- Narrative documenting the effective date and specifics of the policy or standard practice.
- Copy of written policy/requirement.
- If policy is long standing, copies of invoices from procurement demonstrating its implementation.
