The 45th Anniversary of Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22!

Author: Sherry MacDonald, Director of Marketing and Communications, Practice Greenhealth

This is a day to give thanks, educate and celebrate health care’s commitment to our environment and the planet. While we all know that Earth Day is every day, April 22 is a day for tree planting, departmental clean-up contests, cooking demonstrations, community shredding for document recycling and much more. What do you have planned?

Practice Greenhealth is here to help you plan and promote your Earth Day events through resources available on our Practice Greenhealth Earth Day Page.

  • Earth Day Sharing Call – Listen to Hermine Levey Weston, Practice Greenhealth’s facility engagement manager, for a pre-recorded Sharing Call where she shared strategies for Earth Day. Listen to the conversation and plan your own event.
  • Practice Greenhealth has a wealth of Earth Day posters and articles for educating staff on environmental tips. Past Earth Day events from Practice Greenhealth members are highlighted. We also have stickers with reminders to be green every day! Download posters and Earth Day press release announcements and start planning! (This requires membership login. Not sure what your login is? Click here.)
  • Download and modify our Press Release so you can announce activities to your community and the media.
  • Post Social Media Messages – we’ve made it easy by writing several Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn posts about Earth Day. Use ours or customize your own based on your activities!
  • 30-minute Educational Recorded Webinar for Community and/or Staff – Join Practice Greenhealth’s Janet Howard, for a pre-recorded webinar entitled, Every Day is Earth Day – Healing Human Health and the Environment. Gather a group together for the pre-recorded message where Janet shares the basics of why a commitment to human health is a commitment to the environment. She reviews sustainability, carbon footprint and successes from member hospitals from across the country. The viewing could be followed by an overview of environmental stewardship activities at your site. Interested in giving the presentation yourself? Download the PowerPoint presentation and the script, add slides and make it your own! Either way, this is an opportunity to educate staff and patients through formal presentations or running on a loop in lobbies or the cafeteria – whatever works best for you.

Tell us about your Earth Day activities and you may be featured on our website, in our magazine, and on social media!

Thank you for all that you do for healthier environments!
