Every Earth Day, we demonstrate support for environmental protection and discuss the ways we can contribute to creating a more sustainable world. In the past, we've shared general ideas about how to go green at the practice level but, this year, one of our regional managers, Jennifer Weitzel, decided to commit to change by pledging to help all of the hospitals in her region to go paperless. Amazing, right?
If you're familiar with Jennifer, you know she's not afraid to tackle any project - no matter the size. In fact, a few years ago, she organized a mental health summit to emphasize the importance of emotional wellbeing in the workplace. Now the environmental impact she's making will leave the practices in her region more sustainable and let her and the practice teams she works with feel good about making a positive change in the world.
Here are some of Jennifer's tips for going green at your practice:
Many of these tips will save paper, toner, postage, waste, and time. Most importantly of all, though, they'll help reduce your practice's carbon footprint which will leave you feeling good and leave the environment just a little bit healthier than it was before.
