Orlando, FL, November 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Healthcare Scouts commitment to the environment will expand in 2009 with a tree planted for every placement made. CEO, Don Langmo, announced the commitment on America Recycles Day, http://www.nrc-recycle.org/eiya.aspx, November 15, 2009. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to remind our employees the importance and significance in what they do to support the healthcare community. This significance will be made even stronger with our commitment to plant a tree for every placement.”
Healthcare Scouts commitment to the environment is seen in its own office recycling program that eliminates trash cans at individual workstations and creates centralized recycling stations. According to Brian Hudson, Healthcare Scouts President and COO, “the elimination of trash containers at individual workstations encourages individual employees to be discriminate on what is printed and brings to light the amount of trash that can be produced through unnecessary printing and personal consumption. Also, a single waste container discourages sorting of recycled material. As a 21st century firm, we pride ourselves on giving back.”
Savings have been significant in paper, toner and printer supplies – along with the human capital savings of not having to empty over 30 separate waste containers nightly.
