EPPnet (Environmentally Preferable Purchasing) Listserv

EPPnet is a forum to promote purchasing green products, including with recycled content, and services. EPPnet is hosted by NERC on Google Groups. Please note: Private vendors are precluded from joining the forum.

Membership must be approved. To join the conversation, send an email to, including your name, state and affiliation.

Google Groups

Google requires that you have a Gmail account to initially access the listserv.  Once in, you can change your email address to whatever you want through the settings.  Here is what Google says:

Join a Google group without a Gmail address

If you don't have a Google Account, you can:

  • Read posts in public groups
  • Search for posts in public groups

You need a Google Account to:

  • Create and manage a group
  • Join a group
  • Post to a group
  • Delete a post
  • Read a restricted group's posts

To use these features with Google Groups, you can create a Google Account without changing your email address.

You can also link a non-Gmail email address to an existing Google Account. The linked email address can be made an owner or manager. Learn how to sign in to your Google Account with another email address.
