Pollution Prevention, Resource Innovation and Conservation (P2RIC)
P2RIC connects business and industry to organizations that provide waste reduction services and expertise. Our primary goal is to share resources and knowledge among businesses and agencies that use pollution prevention strategies in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska (EPA Region 7).
P2RIC is part of the national Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange funded in part through grants from the EPA. With eight regional information centers, P2Rx raises awareness and increases effectiveness of pollution prevention strategies through timely, accurate and useful information and resources.
P2RX and P2RIC serve the nation by promoting prevention as the preferred strategy for maintaining quality of life in our communities and healthy ecosystems.
