Janitorial Paper

The state buys a wide range of janitorial paper products such as sanitary tissue, paper towels, and toilet seat covers. The key environmental consideration for janitorial paper is the use of post-consumer recycled content, which promotes conservation of natural resources.

Green Contracts

Currently there is no green statewide commodity contract for this commodity.

To assist state departments with the identification of Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) products that meet EPP criteria, the Department of General Services (DGS) EPP program has developed DGS purchasing standards.

DGS Purchasing Standards

DGS purchasing standards provide the minimum criteria purchases must meet to be considered EPP, aka “green”, by the state of California. They establish a mechanism for incorporating performance and environmental requirements that meet the state’s environmentally preferable goals into procurement and policy.
