What a Waste
Sustainability expert Tony Schifano, Founder and CEO of Antos Environmental, joins Ryan and Katie to discuss the massive issue of waste management in hospitals and what health care organizations (and everyone) can do to reduce the ballooning amount of waste we produce every day. Hospitals produce 6,600 tons of waste every day, according to a 2012 report by the Commonwealth Fund. That same report found that if hospitals reduced their environmental footprint, they could save $5.4 billion over a five year period, and $15 billion over 10 years. Those savings could be redirected to health care. Learn more about Tony’s work and how he’s helped hospitals and large organizations reduce their waste at Antosinc.com.
