ITEP and the Tribal Pollution Prevention Network (Tribal P2) are joining forces to help tribal professionals searching for peer to peer assistance with pollution prevention, source reduction, and waste diversion strategies. In addition to ITEP’s peer to peer matching assistance and on site mentoring opportunities, we encourage you to visit the Tribal P2 peer map below, where you can find peer support to advance your pollution prevention programs in over 20 different areas, including solid waste, recycling, composting, greening casinos, and greening tribal offices to name a few. To access the many Tribal P2 peer resources, simply click on the map below. (Helpful hint: By checking the boxes titled "Tribal", then "Peer Collaborators", then the area of expertise you are most interested in, you can narrow your search on the Tribal P2 map.)
