Michigan Pollution Prevention Week - September 18-24, 2023

The State of Michigan invites you to be a part of Pollution Prevention (P2) Week, by incorporating activities into your daily routine that reduce, reuse, and recycle waste. P2 Week is an opportunity for individuals, schools, communities, and businesses to show case or share ideas about how they reduce waste, are more efficient, or reduce energy. Promoting P2 activities at home, work, or school helps to protect the local economy, improve health, and reduce energy costs.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer supports P2 Week as an opportunity for Michigan government, citizenry, and business to take actions that foster a prosperous and sustainable future. Many businesses and corporations currently participate in the EGLE's voluntary pollution prevention partnerships and initiatives.

Join Governor Whitmer with EGLE in celebrating Pollution Prevention week September 18 through 24.
