Guess who’s on the Green Wall of Fame?

You’ve heard of the Oscars, the Grammy’s, the Emmy’s … they may be shiny, but they have nothing on this even bigger honour … the Green Wall of Fame! This is the spot we like to recognize our extra-enthusiastic eco-warriors around UHN. Without further ado, I’m pleased to announce the latest winners….

Congratulations to our amazing Radiation Therapy Green Team! This team, led by Veng Chhin, really works together to green UHN on many levels.  To highlight just one thing is difficult, but we’ll focus on their Recycle Rescue operation.

Frustrated by seeing so many cans and bottles in the garbage, they designed an ingenious way to fix the situation. They use a special tool to rescue recyclables from garbages all around Radiation Therapy waiting areas and units. They manage to rescue a bag full every day.

To make it official, they even designed and made custom green team vests (nice work, Nathaniel!) so that when they go on Rescue Patrol, they look the part.

There are a great many people on this team and they all deserve a special mention: Led by Veng Chhin, we have (big inhale of breath) Sherrill Archer, Uzma Awan, Angie Cardella, Biu Chan, He Bruce Chan, Kitty Chan, Lily Chau, Nelissa Chaudhry, Susan Chen, Amanda Hogan, Heather Jang, Julie Kang, Valerie Kelly, Fatima Khalfan, Laxmi Khemraj-Balram, Amanda Lamb, Alice Leung, Tamerou Messeret, Nathaniel So, Patricia Toolsie & Olive Wong on this fantastic team.

Thanks Radiation Therapy Green Team! You’ve (literally) come to the rescue :).
