USDA seeks comments on paper and paper-based products

Friday, January 4, 2013

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is seeking comments on a proposal for a new research and promotion program. A 12-member board would administer the program. The board would be responsible for carrying out activities intended to raise awareness about and highlight the renewability, recyclability, and reusability of paper and paper-based packaging.

You can visit the USDA to learn more about research and promotion programs. Information on the proposed program will be published in an upcoming edition of the Federal Register.

The rule will provide a 60-day comment period. Comments can be posted on or mailed to the Promotion and Economics Division, FVP, AMS, USDA, Stop 0244, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Room 1406, Washington, DC 20250-0244.
