After a long hiatus, we’re proud to present:
PLANET PROGRESS – Extraordinary Rescue: MedShare
“We are not to throw away those things which can benefit our neighbor. Goods are called good because they can be used for good: they are instruments for good, in the hands of those who use them properly.” ~ Clement of Alexandria
After a visit with Medshare in San Leandro, California, we learned that a staggering 4 billion pounds of medical waste is generated each year from hospitals throughout the United States. Nearly 85% of that is considered non infectious. MedShare introduced a new idea to hospitals that would allow them to recycle much of this reusable surplus. By setting aside unused materials and equipment, their nonprofit company could then send them to medically under-served communities.
