About Us

Our Mission: To reduce waste and increase energy efficiency by making the process of researching, locating and selecting green products and services more convenient for consumers.

The Eco Products and Services Center (EPSC) is a one-stop solution center for a broad variety of green products and services. EPSC is designed to make the process of researching, locating and selecting green products and services more convenient for consumers.

EPSC customers will benefit from our knowledgeable staff available to evaluate green product claims, labeling standards and provide information on the installation of products. The EPSC along with a variety of green products and services information in one location also offers information on best practices and access to other green resources including, nonprofits, utilities, websites and research.

In the near future, alternative energy displays will be located onsite. Customers and visitors will be able to view these displays up-close and attend informational sessions to learn about the newest energy options.

EPSC exhibitors know that even though awareness of green products and services will grow, consumers face barriers. Reliable green products and services information is broadly dispersed and difficult to collect and consumers often find green product certifications and marketing confusing.

Companies marketing green products and services need their products to not only stand out but be featured in a crowded and confusing market.

Created in 2010 under the Nebraska Center for Sustainable Construction (NCSC) (joining two other existing divisions: EcoStores Nebraska and DeConstruction Nebraska), EPSC is a "doing business as [dba]" division of the non-profit Joslyn Institute for Sustainable Communities, with offices in Lincoln and Omaha.

The EPSC is part of EcoStores Nebraska, a building material and supplies reuse center, located at 530 West P Street. EcoStores Nebraska combined with EPSC forms a complete and comprehensive community center of green design and construction information unique to Lincoln and the Flatwater metro region.
