Earth Day is this Friday, April 22! Though it’s beneficial to be environmentally conscious year-round, Earth Day serves as an annual reminder of new ways we can improve the way interact with the environment around us.
WakeMed Corporate Integrity Compliance Specialist, Gary Ernster, mentions how his department engages in environmentally friendly behavior:
We, are extremely mindful of being environmentally friendly. We use recycling whenever possible in an effort to lessen the paper burden in terms of cost and storage on WakeMed. We want to be good stewards of the resources that WakeMed provides us, and it allows us to be the best that we can be as a department.
Gary also mentions some ways that employees can be more environmentally conscious, such as: turning off lights after leaving a room, and shredding confidential or protected health information (PHI) after use.
These are just a few examples, but there are tons of ways we can make a positive impact. First, though, let’s look at some interesting facts about Earth Day.
