Purge the Plastic


Each year, the Maryland Green Registry introduces a member campaign focusing on a topic that applies across the wide range of facility types and sizes found in the Registry.  This year it's the Purge the Plastic campaign encouraging members to take simple steps toward reducing single-use plastics in the workplace.  Visit the Purge the Plastic webpage for more information and then check off your activities on this form to be entered to win prizes including a free sustainability assessment by an independent contractor.

Many members are already leading the way on plastic reduction practices and we look forward to learning about more!

If your company is a food or beverage manufacturing processing facility, it may be eligible for a free assessment by an independent contractor to identify energy, water and waste efficiency opportunities and the voluntary actions you can take to improve operational efficiency and save money.  This opportunity is limited to three facilities and is funded by a federal/state grant.  To learn more, e-mail green.registry@maryland.gov.
