I guess I’ve never stopped to realize how cool my Chiropractor office is. During a trip to my Chiropractor I can help myself to a free apple. If I walk, ride your bike or take the bus (which I never do…) they supply granola bars. The bathroom sports a basket full of hand towels so that paper towels are unneccessary. When I asked about whether they are pretty close to zero waste my chiropractor said he didn’t really know. Then he tossed the paper that I rested my head on during the adjustment into a wicker basket. I asked if that was for recycling and the answer was yes. Sure they have normal things like tissues in each treatment room and stickers for the kids but overall they run a very environmentally friendly business. They even stopped mailing monthly newsletters recently. Now it can be e-mailed to you. Very impressive.As a Canadian I have never understood why Alan from Two and a Half Men is always broke. Our chiropractors make lots of money and don’t need to mooch off of their brothers.
What businesses do you go to that are close to zero waste?
