“The great turn out really shows how dedicated our community and staff are to protecting the environment,” said Tina Beakley, SJH Director of Environmental Services.
South Jersey Healthcare has been working hard at going green. Last year, the SJH Go Green initiative was launched, an internal program which looks at ways the organization can be more earth friendly, while saving resources and dollars. Reducing the use of Styrofoam, saving paper and using safer cleaning chemicals are just a few of the projects presently underway. In addition, the SJH recycling program continues to result in less trash being dumped into local landfills.
