It's Pollution Prevention Week!

Pollution prevention act Environmental activists have a lot to celebrate this month, as two big milestones — the Clean Air Act hit the big 4-0 on September 14 and the Pollution Prevention Act turns 20 this week — remind us that we've already come a long way in the fight for a cleaner, safer planet.

The EPA is encouraging people to celebrate Pollution Prevention Week through September 26 by applying the act's declaration that "pollution should be prevented or reduced at its source, whenever possible," to their daily lives. By creating less waste, using fewer resources, and supporting environmentally responsible companies, we can all help create a less polluted world.

Check out the EPA's website for tips, informational webinars, and a video contest.
