Fluorine-free foodware; industrial supplies; repairable/less-toxic solar PV; water-saving products cities buy

What we are looking for:
NOTE: I can't get messages or voicemails from May 5-25 when I'm out of the office.

My team tries to make it easier for for City staff to buy less-toxic and green products from SFApproved.org. 

Instead of manually trying to find the following, I'd like easier ways to find verified products, distributors and retailers of:

1. Paper foodware (e.g., bags, containers, cups, wrap/wrappers) that are free of fluorine (e.g., Teflon).

2. Green industrial supplies such as:

a. Adhesives
i. Carpet
ii. Double sided sticky tape (SFO spends ~$10k/yr)

b. Cleaners:
i. Drain cleaners and maintainers
ii. Graffiti control

c. Batteries: household rechargeable

d. Caulks and sealants (indoor & outdoors, paintable, acrylic)

e. Flashlights, head lamps, lanterns (rechargeable)

f. Industrial hand cleaners

g. Lubricants: spray/penetrants without Teflon

h. Paint removers with no methylene chloride
