Environmental Initiative’s taken by Animal Hospital of Cambridge:

 

-Use of high efficiency appliances ( washer/dryers/fridge) for every day use

-Choosing to work with a  supply/delivery company that takes back their own cardboard boxes and re-usable plastic totes to reduce on waste at Animal Hospital of Cambridge

-Recycling of used toner cartridges via Frid & Russell Office Supply Company
