Troy's actions

At Work

Prevent Recycling Contamination

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will spend 10 minutes learning about which items are recyclable both at my workplace and at home since they may be different, and recycle only those items.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

At Work

Recycling Champion

I will recycle 5 items at work and/or at home each day, making sure I review recycling program guidelines and only place accepted items that are clean, empty, and dry in the recycling bin.

COMPLETED 3
DAILY ACTIONS

Health & Well-being

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 30 minute(s) each day. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

COMPLETED 3
DAILY ACTIONS

Health & Well-being

Gratitude

I will write down three things every day that I am grateful for every day.

At Work

Last to Leave? Lights Out, Please!

Lighting makes up approximately 10% of hospitals' energy use on average. I will save energy by turning off unnecessary lights when not in use and when I am the last one to leave a space.

Use Reusables at Work

I will keep 3 forks, spoons, and/or knives from entering the landfill by using reusable utensils when eating at work.

Keep My Community Clean

I will pick up 5 piece(s) of litter each day.

I will make 2 appointments to support my health and well-being (primary care provider, dental, vision, etc.)

Environmental Footprint of Healthcare

I will spend 30 minutes learning about the environmental footprint of the healthcare industry, how it impacts health, and ways I can help reduce it.

      There's always next year! And, I bet the time you spent in the challenge has helped you to form sustainable, healthy habits that you will carry beyond the confines of the challenge.
