Earth Day is April 22, but our efforts to protect and preserve the planet happen every single day. And those efforts earn kudos; this week, UWMC and Harborview each won a 2018 Top 25 Environmental Excellence Award from Practice Greenhealth.

Collectively UW Medicine eliminated nearly 27,000 pounds of medical supplies from landfills last year, saving $2 million—or enough to buy 1,481,481 LED lightbulbs.
