Green Hardware Supplies Fact Sheets

With support from the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), RPN has developed a set of fact sheets highlighting the environmentally preferable products offered on three NASPO/WSCA contracts for Facilities Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) Supplies. These national cooperative contracts offer a wide array of green hardware supplies such as ENERGY STAR-rated appliances, light bulbs, and HVAC equipment; certified low-toxicity cleaning products, hand soaps, and paint; and recycled content trash bags and janitorial paper products. RPN’s MRO fact sheets describe how to find green products from three major MRO supplies vendors – Fastenal, Grainger, and MSC.
