White-Wilson Medical Center “Goes Green!” 

WWMC is taking initiative to change the way business is done on the Emerald Coast

FORT WALTON BEACH, Florida – February 23, 2009 –As of Monday, February 23, 2009, White-Wilson Medical Center is officially “Going Green!” According to the Container Recycling Institute, approximately 33 billion cans and bottles have been landfilled, littered or incinerated in the U.S. so far this year. This means that Americans are wasting twice as much as they are recycling. White-Wilson is hoping to reduce the impact waste has in our community by launching “green” initiatives. 

“The cost on our environment for replacing the billions of bottles and cans wasted each year is substantial in terms of pollution, wasted energy and disrupted habitats. White-Wilson is doing its part to help Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa County become a designated Green Community,” said Lyn Kelley, director of Human Resources and Marketing at White-Wilson Medical Center.

As of February 23, White-Wilson will participate in a single stream recycling program through Waste Management. In addition, White-Wilson has shifted towards “green” cleaning materials and chemicals, energy efficient light bulbs, reducing its energy consumption and is dedicated to educating its staff on how to reduce and/or reuse materials. White-Wilson Medical Center will continue to seek “green” alternatives for conducting business.

“It’s impressive how much of a difference we can make as individuals with the support of an organization such as White-Wilson. We have already seen a tremendous response from our employees, and I am confident our results will continue to make an impact on our environment well into the future,” said Kelley. 

Kelley also participates in the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Green Awareness Taskforce. For more information on “Going Green,” visit www.gogreenokaloosa.com
