Henry Schein Marks Earth Day Milestone

Stocks in this article: HSIC

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, contributed to environmental sustainability since Earth Day 2012 by helping to plant more than 6,500 trees as part of an innovative program to offset computer CO2 emissions and recycle high tech "e-waste."

Henry Schein, through the company's TechCentral computer and business technology solutions and services team, is an active participant in the DELL Inc.'s Plant a Tree for Me program. For every DELL computer Henry Schein TechCentral sells, a tree is planted on the customers' behalf. What's more, through TechCentral, medical, dental and veterinary practices can safely dispose of old office equipment, including laptops, desktop computers, tablets, servers, printers, peripheral equipment and materials that might otherwise end up as landfill waste. Henry Schein TechCentral will work with customers to schedule a convenient time to pick up a minimum of 10 recyclable items.  Since the program's inception at Henry Schein in 2007, the Company has helped plant approximately 25,000 trees.

"The increased use of technology products in health care practices also has created an increase in the amount of e-waste that can introduce harmful and dangerous toxins into the environment when not properly discarded," said Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein North America Dental Practice Solutions. "As a socially responsible company committed to fostering a sustainable environment, Earth Day provides us an opportunity to not only remind practitioners about the important role of technology in their practices, but also the responsibility we all bear to properly recycle these products and the simple solution to do so offered by our TechCentral team."

In an effort to increase awareness of the importance of environmentally responsible business practices, each year Henry Schein offers its customers a wide variety of "green" products and helpful tips for practices looking to minimize their environmental impact through the Company's Global Reflections catalogue.
