Product Stewardship: Waste Reduction at the source
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), or Product Stewardship, means whoever designs or produces a product takes primary
responsibility for minimizing its environmental impact through all stages of the product's life cycle. And the producer, having the
greatest ability to minimize impacts, has the most responsibility.
By requiring manufacturers to design environmentally responsible products and packaging, we will minimize the negative
impacts our waste has on the environment.
Product Stewardship is a growing movement leading to a more sustainable and healthier future.
