THE BIG TIDY UP and Launch of our Environmental Policy
Romsey Dental Care launched its environmental policy by taking part in The Big Tidy Up, a Keep Britain Tidy campaign, on 28th September 2008. We cleared rubbish from the forecourt of the disused building next door and then collected rubbish from along the canal walk in Romsey. In all, we collected 10 bags of rubbish, recycling as much of this as possible.
Practice Owner Samantha Price said ‘Legislation forces dental practices to be quite wasteful; we want to show that it is possible for small businesses to offset their impact on the environment by making a positive contribution elsewhere.’ Samantha regularly cycles the 5 miles to work and other team members walk in, and as far as possible during the working day items are recycled and energy consumption is kept to a minimum. Romsey Dental Care’s electricity comes from a green supplier.
Romsey Dental Care has also undertaken an audit to identify as many ways as possible to minimise the environmental damage caused without compromising the high quality of clinical care provided.
