New Web Site to Highlight Recycled-Content Products from Ohio and Other Great Lakes States
September 2, 1997
COLUMBUS, OH -- A new Internet web site produced by the Council of Great Lakes Governors is making it easier for Ohio businesses to find high quality recycled products in the eight-state region, while helping showcase Ohio's recycled products to those states. The web site, located at
http://www.cglg.org/projects/recycle, is part of the Council's Great Lakes Recycle project, aimed at increasing the use of recycled-content products.
"Businesses and government agencies can benefit from this new website by accessing information on the top recycled-content products and prices available in each state," said Jenni Worster, chief of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention.
The Great Lakes Recycle project was created in 1991 after the Council of Great Lakes Governors asked their states to work cooperatively to purchase recycled products. Jenni Worster, chief of the ODNR's Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention, serves as Ohio's representative on the eight-member Great Lakes Recycle Board.
"The board believes that states should lead by example, and stimulate the recycled product markets in the Great Lakes states," Worster said. "We are developing strategies to attract recycling industries to the Great Lakes region, while promoting the overall ethic of recycling."
