Sustainability means committing to the health of our future.
The nursing community understands the importance of health better than any other. Unfortunately, most of us have been overlooking the health of something incredibly important; our planet. That’s why, here at NursingCE, we want to be just as committed to health as you are when it comes to leaving our best green footprint behind.
Change starts with us.
Here are some of the things that
we've been doing to cut down on energy
We don’t print anything on paper, like certificates, unless you ask. We’re also starting a new initiative. starting next year, on Earth Day, we’re going to be planting trees based on how many lifetime purchases are made.
From Energy-Star certified appliances to LED lights, everything in our office reduces our energy use. We save up to 930 watts a day, adding up to 148,320 watts a month. Additionally, we work from home on Fridays, so no energy is used then.
We use reusable glassware, silverware and dishes in our office to reduce plastic and paper waste. We have a strict no plastic straw rule. Instead we have beautiful aluminum straws that compliment every beverage well. We will be moving to the renewable wind energy offering within ConEd, our electric provider.
