At Stephen’s Pharmacy, sustainability is supported both by management and employees. A few dedicated individuals have created a “Green Team” that actively strives to decrease the business’ environmental footprint. These people have learned that being sustainable is a group effort and part of giving back to their customers and their community. They’ve upgraded their lighting and are working with their mechanical system to make sure that everything is running as efficiently as possible. At Stephen’s Pharmacy everything is recycled from pills and pill bottles to paper, keeping medication out of the water supply and waste out of the landfill. The Green Team is interested in looking into how businesses can work together to turn “common” wastes, such as thin plastic, into community resources.
