WORKPLACE: Green Team Feedback

Dispatch from SSC Project Manager Lorre Walker

Isn’t it wonderful when you get feedback on your Green Team efforts? My sister is on her Green Team at the Texas Department of State Health Services. Last week she received the following email from the Recycling Coordinator at the Texas Facilities Commission.


Waste reduction DSHS lab FY 2009
From 5 times weekly to once weekly
$5000.00 savings
More than 75% reduction

First of all, kudos to the Green Team for their efforts to reduce their environmental impacts and costs!! Second of all, kudos to the Recycling Coordinator for recognizing those efforts and providing feedback with specific data!!

Just increasing their recycling efforts saved the lab building $5,000 in one year! Amazing!
