Member Pledge

"I pledge that my organization will strive to use its purchasing power to maximize environmental stewardship, protect human health, and support local and global sustainability."

Thank you for your interest in joining the Responsible Purchasing Network, the nation's largest network of sustainable purchasing professionals. Joining RPN can save you money by pointing you to model purchasing policies, "green" specifications, and tools to measure your environmental impact and cost savings.

RPN memberships are available to federal, state, and local governments, institutions such as colleges and universities and nonprofit organizations, and most businesses. Your membership can be shared with anyone in your agency, organization, or company.

There are two convenient membership options:

1- Automatic Renewal Plan

This is the perfect "no hassle" option for your RPN membership!

Additional Ways to Support RPN:

1- Sponsor an RPN Membership for you local school or day care center to use less toxic cleaners, for your local town to buy hybrid vehicles, or another organization important to you.

Download the sponsorship form (pdf, doc).

2- Individuals who would like to support RPN are encouraged to make a donation here. Thank you!


Enrolling in the Automatic Renewal Plan lets you "Subscribe" to RPN and your membership will automatically renew every year with the credit card information you provide.

Members that choose this option will also lock in RPN's current membership rate with an extra 10 percent discount. A PayPal account is required (registration is free and created during your purchase) and you can cancel at any time.

2- Year-by-Year Membership

Can't commit to an automatically renewing membership? No problem. You can purchase 1-, 2-, or 3-year membership for your organization. If you are purchasing a 2- or 3-year membership, you will also receive a 10 percent discount.
