What is Product Stewardship?
Product Stewardship is an environmental management strategy that means whoever designs, produces, sells, or uses a product takes responsibility for minimizing the product's environmental impact throughout all stages of the products' life cycle. The greatest responsibility lies with whoever has the most ability to affect the life cycle environmental impacts of the products. The mission of the Council is to integrate product stewardship principles into the policy and economic structures of the Pacific Northwest.
