PSI's Services for Producers and Retailers

Our Services


At PSI, we know that a circular economy propelled by safe, eco-friendly products doesn't just happen. It’s the result of hard work and collaboration.

For 20 years, we have brought the private and public sectors together to create thoughtful, seamless product stewardship programs and policies. Our experience shows that putting people and planet first also packs powerful business benefits -- operational efficiency, increased availability of quality recycled material, and customer appreciation and loyalty.

As a business partner and consultant, we combine the blue-sky vision of a think tank with practical advice that comes from years in the trenches.

What We Do for You


Research, pilot projects, & evaluation

PSI evaluates existing and proposed programs, integrating best practices with business needs. We conducted the first retail computer take-back pilot with Staples, helped grocery stores go green, and our research for the paint industry identifies new technologies and end markets for post-consumer latex paint.
