Deirdre_Imus_Headshot_cropped_new_2-9-15_cropDear Friends,
 
As we move into a season of longer days, the summer presents many families the opportunity to recharge and take a different course, if only for a few precious weeks. This can be as simple as sitting outside for a few minutes to soak up the sun, walking in a nearby park, or taking that long-awaited vacation. We hope you have a few minutes to recharge with the articles here, and find inspiration for making your environment a little healthier.
 
In this issue, we feature the “win-wins” of two great organizations which have embraced Greening The Cleaning®: Halo Studios, a fitness facility, and the Child Care and Learning Center (part of HackensackUMC). Both have discovered the benefits of healthier cleaning products and a healthier facility. 
 
Our Medical Advisor and integrative pediatrician, Dr. Rosen, explores the interdependency between the health of our environment and our own health, as influenced by climate change. 
 
At the Center, we are honored to be a recipient of the 2015 Top 25 Green Hospitals award from Practice GreenHealth. We are always striving to make the Medical Center campus a national model for other healthcare facilities in recycling, waste and toxics reduction, healthy food and energy efficiency. The changing landscape of sustainable technologies encourages us to continually set the bar higher and we are thankful for your support in this effort. 
 
 
Sincerely,
Deirdre Imus
