03 May Brentview Medical Goes Green
A thick cloud of smog has taken over our once beautiful mountain views, fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources are becoming endangered, and glaciers are melting at an accelerated rate. Let’s face it; our planet is in need of some tender loving care. At Brentview Medical, we are doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint by employing the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
It’s easy to lose sight of just how much we waste. We have made a pledge to our patients, and planet earth, to reduce the amount of paper used in the office by doing our best to go paperless with patient/physician communication. You can do the same by downloading any intake forms on our website, and emailing them to your patient coordinator. In addition, we only purchase recycled and partially recycled plastics and materials for office use. And in turn, we have recycling bins throughout the office to discard of any waste. We recently installed water filters on all of our faucets, and replaced our lights bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs, which are four times more efficient than incandescent light bulbs, lasting up to 10 times longer, and, keep a half-ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere over the life of the bulb.
Join the physicians and staff at Brentview Medical in our efforts to be more environmentally friendly.
