Talkin' (and bloggin') Trash
Going green is an ongoing challenge in the hospital sector. Our Environment Department continually rises to that challenge, finding new ways to bring some green into the halls, offices and clinics of our hospitals. They are Ed Rubinstein, Manager, Energy and Environment, and Kady Cowan, UHN Energy Steward. It doesn't hurt that they think it's fun, and happen to have a sense of humour about it too. Ed is renowned among staff for his funny and informative monthly e-newsletter, Talkin' Trash. Now, together with Kady, they've taken that same idea into blog format. Join in the conversation on how we all work to make UHN, Toronto and the world a greener place. Read up on their latest efforts on the Talkin' Trash blog at www.talkintrashwithuhn.blogspot.com.
"This is our chance to reach folks at UHN and beyond who want to make sure health care does not create health problems. More and more environmental issues are making headlines around the world. In these posts you'll find good news about what individuals and organizations are doing to protect the planet. Check out our blog and let us know what you think. How often do you get to trash talk for the benefit of the planet?" - Kady Cowan, UHN Energy Steward
