Sinai Celebrates Earth Week with Rechargeable Battery Giveback Event

On Monday, April 23 Sinai's Freedom to Be Green Team hosted a battery giveback event to commemorate Earth Week.  The Green Team set up an information table located by the Greenspring Café tray return from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It was the goal of team members to educate patients and visitors about the hospital's battery recycling program, as well as to give away free batteries.

A battery tester was used to see if batteries that were collected from the hospital’s battery recycling program still had power.  If the battery showed that it still had life in it, the team members put them in a bin for people to take.

See pictures from the event below:

In addition to giving away free batteries, the Green Team also featured a video that showed the life cycle of recycled products. The video traced the journey of recycling, from the moment something is thrown into a recycling bin, to the moment it is sent to the recycling facility, to the moment it is brought back into the facility for consumption.

Later in the week the Green Team will be giving away free compost and will also be offering tours of the new employee garden.

  • The months of June, July and August average more auto accidents than any other time of year. Buckle seatbelts, reduce distractions, obey the speed limit, and NEVER drink and drive. #WednesdayWisdom

  • #SinaiHospital's housekeeping team knows the importance of bringing a little fun into the workplace. To play off their creative skills, employees participated in a fun towel folding contest. Not only could team members showcase their knowledge, talents, and skills, but they could also bring smiles to the patients' faces. #TeamLifeBridge

  • After an exhausting workday, exercising is probably the last thing you want to do. But getting your sweat on will actually energize you. According to a study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, fatigue along with mood and depression improved after a single 30-minute, moderate intensity exercise session. #WednesdayWisdom
