EPP Award Presented to Bay State Envelope

The Environmental Purchasing and Sustainability Awards are presented every fall at the EPP Vendor Fair and Conference.

The awards are conferred at a ceremony attended by hundreds of participating state, county, and local purchasers and administrators, school business managers, and recycling coordinators.
