Earth Day is this Wednesday, April 22. In observance and celebration of Earth Day, Team Green will be sending out a survey to gather data on staff work habits around recycling, energy use, etc. All those who complete the survey will receive a reusable shopping bag and be eligible for a green prize package. So be on the lookout for an email from Team Green on Wednesday.
Beginning this week, we will also include a “Green Tip of the Week” in the Medical Education blog. These tips will highlight simple and effective ways to help our offices reduce waste, recycle, save energy, and protect the environment.
Green Tip of the Week:
Turning off your computer and monitor at night not only reduces energy use, it saves money! Computers do not need to be on for updates during the evenings. If there is an update, PatchLink will run in the morning when you turn on your computer.
