Healthy Work/Healthy Home

BIDMC celebrated its 12th annual Healthy Work/Healthy Home Enivironmental Action day today. Awards were presented to environmental champions in the hospital, and especially people for whom their specific efforts were not part of their job description.

Jim Hunt, Mayor's Menino's chief of environmental and energy services, was the guest speaker. He talked about the City of Boston's engagement in sound environmental and energy practices, which has been recognized in the City's 6th place ranking by SustainLane.

Following the breakfast session, people congregated at a set of exhibits and were offered these nice water bottles as a remembrance of the day.

Cheers to you and the team for a wonderful event! Listening to Jim Hunt was like peering into Boston's environmental future. What a treat it was for him to talk with us! If we all chipped in, we could be on a path to reducing our GHG emissions. So as ambassadors, it's up to us to encourage others to tweak their habits both @work + @home!
