Indicate what your company does actively to promote On-Site Waste Reduction.
We try to minimize our use of water and electricity by turning the lights off in rooms that are not being used and utilizing energy efficient lighting. We also use all eco-friendly cleaners and laundry detergent and only recycled paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, printer paper, etc). Our marketing materials are also printed on recycled materials. We minimize the use of paper towels by purchasing smaller sheets and when clients enjoy the beverages in bottles we provide for them, we recycle their bottles. We also use recycled paper cups and lids in our lobby coffee machine. Sensitive documents are shredded and an independent company is contracted to pick our shredded paper up for recycling (since it cannot go in the Char Meck recycling bins).
Please describe what you will be doing internally to actively promote and display Wipe Out Waste Ambassador initiatives.
We advertise we are Wipe Out Waste Ambassadors and have information on our website and facebook page about the program. Staff is aware of the program and our dedication to waste reduction/recycling and efficiency. We sponsor a community recycling drop-off center (arranged through the wipe out waste program) behind our business, where we recycle all cardboard, paper, plastic and metal cans from our hospital and encourage all of our neighboring businesses to do the same.
Please provide examples of your company's commitment to purchase "Green Products".
We have written protocols in place to buy all green/recycled products and recycle all materials in the hospital possible.We use detergents and cleaning products that are eco-friendly and light bulbs that are eco-friendly, as well as natural cat litters that are biodegradable for our hospitalized cats. We also recently switched all of our paper products from traditional to recycled – printer paper, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, etc.
