Product stewardship or extended producer responsibility (EPR) encourages all those involved in the life cycle of a product—including manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and government—to take responsibility for the various environmental and human impacts that result from the production, use, and disposal of that product.

Many companies that produce products such as computers, electronics, rechargeable batteries, carpets, ceiling tiles, and tires have implemented product stewardship programs. For a comprehensive summary, check out the links below:
