Environmental Purchasing

  •  The Tangipahoa Parish School System purchases more than $10 million of goods and services each year. Some products may contribute to problems in the overall environment, including contamination of the air and water, and depletion of environmental resources.
    The school system has an opportunity to serve as a community model for environmental leadership by incorporating a plan of action that will conserve precious resources, reduce the use of hazardous substances, and potentially improve the environmental quality of the parish.
