In March, the President issued Executive Order 13693 directing EPA to provide federal purchasers with recommendations of specifications, standards and ecolabels to use in identifying and procuring environmentally preferable products and services. EPA has released interim recommendations of standards and ecolabels to help federal buyers green their purchases.  These recommendations include standards and ecolabels for construction, adhesives, flooring, insulation, paint, wood, custodial products, electronics, grounds/landscaping materials, office supplies, operations, fleets, shipping and a whole host of other products and services.

Please help us spread the word about how EPA and other agencies are supporting the use of green products across the federal government.
