Join us on March 25, 2015, at noon for a special presentation by Dr. Anahita Williamson, director of the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) at Rochester Institute of Technology.
The goal of NYSP2I is to make the state more sustainable for workers, the public, the environment, and the economy through pollution prevention. Dr. Williamson will discuss the work NYDP2I is doing with academia, industries, and communities to develop and implement innovative solutions that reduce their environmental footprints. The program also will include a review of how we all can help on a personal level by selecting home-cleaning and other products.
