UMass Medical School celebrated Earth Day on Tuesday. The event featured locally grown foods, energy efficient products and services. Melissa Lucas, energy and sustainability manager was interviewed for the segment. The event also featured Blu2Green, a start-up company that recycles the blue wrap at UMass Memorial Medical Center’s Hahnemann campus. Blu2Green has partnered with Commonwealth Medicine’s WorkWithoutLimits to employ people with disabilities to turn the blue wrap into usable products such as tote bags and neck ties.
