Barbara Bushell, a registered nurse at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, looks over tables of items during a "Trash to Treasures" event Friday, July 13, 2012. LMH employees can bring unwanted, but usable items to swap for something they might need throughout the day. Bushell took folders that were labeled from A to Z. She planned to use them to organize a file at home. "It's nice to be able to use something that nobody else needs," she said. "I think this is a great idea."

Excellent! Reusing items is even better than recycling. In a throw away society, LMH proved that an exchange event can be very successful. It's something other businesses and even individuals could replicate. Kudos on all of their other efforts to be green, too!
