December 2016 Vol. 11/No. 4
As a new season begins, many of us are preparing for celebrations with family and friends. With this sometimes hectic season, we invite you to sit back for a few minutes and enjoy this issue of Greening Your Life. It’s full of ideas and resources to help “green” your world, whether it’s your home, your child’s school, or a local business. We’ve also included a gift guide for sustainable, healthy giving.
This issue, we celebrate HackensackUMC’s recognition as one of Becker’s “50 Greenest Hospitals in the U.S.” The cornerstone of our sustainability program is our Greening The Cleaning® program and product line. This year, we celebrated 15 years of helping businesses transition to green cleaning products. Bringing "green" to independent medical practices, integrative pediatrician Dr. Rosen advocates for greener, healthier doctors’ offices. To help your family stay healthy this season, you’ll find easy recipes for eating clean, and a link to my latest blog.
Thanks to each one of our supporters for your contribution to ensure our Center continues our mission of protecting children’s health. We are grateful for any amount you may want to give. Thank you, too, for making us your resource for environmental health information, advocacy and research.
Wishing you health and wellness,
