DoD Environmental Security Secretary to Announce Switch Recycled Paper

Under Secretary of Defense for Environmental Security Sherri W. Goodman will announce the Department's switch to using all recycled content copier paper in conjunction with Earth Day, on Thursday, April 17, following the regularly scheduled DoD press briefing at 2 p.m. in the DoD Briefing Studio, Rm. 2E781.

The Department of Defense uses 65 percent of all copier paper within the federal government. Using recycled paper reduces consumption of water and electricity, saves trees and helps protect air and water quality.

Secretary Goodman will be joined by the Federal Environmental Executive, Fran McPoland, and GSA's Commissioner of the Federal Supply Service Center, Frank Pugliese.
