P2 Pathways

The Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange is a national partnership of regional centers that advance pollution prevention as a cornerstone of sustainability.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created the grant program that supports P2Rx in 1997.
The centers ensure easy access to high-quality information on how to prevent and reduce pollution through source reduction and conservation of natural resources. The centers also build communities of practice, provide technical assistance and measure P2 program results.
