Blue Wrap, Green Friendly


To commemorate Earth Day 2014, Sibley Memorial Hospital’s Green Team held its annual Blue Wrap Fashion Show for employees. Departments were given recycled blue wrap—used in the operating room to sterilize equipment—and were encouraged to design an outfit to model in the runway competition. Pictured here, from left, are winners Mieraf Solomon, mammography tech, who won for best tailoring; and surgical charge nurse Barbara Sweeney, who received an honorable mention. Last year, the Green Team’s efforts to inspire recycling and decrease regulated medical waste helped the hospital to save $21,964. The team also received the District of Columbia Hospital Association Environmental Excellence Award in recognition of Sibley’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
