Supply Chain Plastic Packaging Reduction Project
The Plastic Packaging Reduction Project seeks to assist public agencies in reducing plastics packaging from its supply chain by providing case studies, best practices, packaging product alternatives, and implementation materials. This project is a collaborative effort between the Cities of Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, San Jose, and the Santa Clara County Watershed Management Initiative in consultation with the Responsible Purchasing Network. The Project aspires to expand the network of cities who are asking their vendors to share in the responsibility of reducing packaging waste to help meet Water Quality and Zero Waste objectives.
