talkhealth launches talkgreen!
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new sustainable healthcare platform talkgreen!
talkgreen is our members' one-stop-shop for all things sustainable healthcare. Whether you’re new to transparency or have been going green for sometime, talkgreen will help you and your patients put your eco-friendly feet forward. By making sense of sustainable products, transparent alternatives and planet friendly health hacks, the platform makes sustainable healthcare easy!
We’re all doing our best to consume sustainably these days. From our clothes to our food, making ethical choices has become more and more important. Despite this, healthcare is often left behind.
Not only does the NHS produce up to 600,000 tonnes of waste a year, but we are also all contributing to the healthcare carbon footprint. When we chuck away our non-biodegradable plasters, dispose of our leftover medications and buy single-use sanitary products, healthcare’s harm to the environment increases.
At talkhealth, we know that making new, eco-friendly, habits can be tough. That’s why we want to make talkgreen as accessible as possible to you and those seeking your support. By sharing trustworthy eco-friendly product reviews and advising on sustainable alternatives that don’t break the bank, we want to help everyone make sustainable choices every day.
The talkgreen hub is updated weekly. Allowing you to not only learn about new developments in the arena but also guide your patients to educational and informative content.
Sustainability is evolving all of the time. With that in mind, we need your help to stay on the pulse. We are currently running the first talkgreen survey where you can share your thoughts on how the platform should run. We want to hear about how sustainable healthcare has shaped your patient's journeys so far and how it contributes to your current health plans.
