To deliver excellent healthcare services, both now and long into the future, we need to be sustainable in our use of resources. This includes our environment, our people, patients and communities and our budget.
Sustainability therefore requires a large amount of teamwork, making this headline accurate, more so from recent collaborations between the Friends’ of Broomfield and the trust’s Sustainability Team.
The charity shops recently launched a 30p discount for anyone using a reusable cup for hot drinks with the ambition of reducing the single-use disposable alternative. A small stock of recycled bamboo reusable cups is likewise available for purchase.
Sustainability’s David Jackson added:
“The traction behind the recent beverage cup changes is a fantastic example of how a variety of groups can be brought together by a central aim of reducing our environmental impacts.”
