A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn (i.e. one-year time period or representative sample):

South Seattle recently switched vendors for paper towels and toilet paper. We wanted to include this change and be recognized for our switch to 100% recycled and regionally manufactured paper products, so the time period is January 1-June 30, 2017

We were only able to quantify paper product purchases, because our new vendor ran a report. We are unable to determine expenditures on all cleaning products. During this time period we were switching to a new paper product vendor. Previous expenses on paper products cannot be calculated, but we estimate $3,000 was used for non-green paper products.
