zero waste

My Chiropractor.

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?

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. This is so impressive. And encouraging. I’ve been looking but haven’t found anything as good as this yet.
    Thanks for the comments on my blog, Miss Stephanie.
