Washington Hospital Is Going Green
Washington Hospital recognizes the critical link between the health of each individual and the health of the environment. As the hospital reaffirms its commitment to promoting a healthier community, it's taking a leading role in environmental awareness.
At the Fremont Art & Wine Festival, members of the Hospital's Green Team will discuss how to better recycle at home and help people fill out Stop Junk Mail kits. This effort can help eliminate tons of paper waste per year, conserve trees and prevent the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
