This may be the first post I cross-posted both here and on the hip & zen pen, a blog I contribute to about life balance, lifehacking and progressive causes (like the environment.)
You may not think much about the kind of waste generated by a hospital (and I don't just mean toxic waste, people.)
But HospitalImpact.org brings us a story of one way hospitals can cut down on their environmental impact: PVC/DEHP-free IV-bags and tubing.
Hospitals aren't the only ones, though, who use such supplies. I use them every day. I have a cat with mild Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) and I giver her 100 ccs of sub-cutaneous fluids every day using exactly the same supplies I see on TV during every medical show. Been doing it for over 2 years. The bags I use are recyclable, or so the symbols on the bag tell me. But maybe these new bags are even better? Don't know.
Just thought it was interesting.
