What a fantastic article! Hopefully it will inspire many more anaesthetists to get involved in environmental sustainability.

Thanks Charlotte,

the authors and a couple of others are now interested to develop some education resources for teaching medical students about sustainable anaesthetic practice, so if anyone would like to be involved in this, please get in touch: frances.mortimer@sustainablehealthcare.org.uk
