Not only do we respect and care about the health and well-being of our clients, but also that of our surroundings. That’s why being environmentally conscious and community focused are ingrained in our core values, and further drive our business practices.
Health care is a wasteful industry, mostly because of sanitation requirements, but we believe that big changes can be made with a little effort and “outside the box” thinking.
That’s why we decided to become a very proud member of the Vancouver Island Green Business Collective, making us the FIRST health care clinic on the island to be certified by this amazing and incredibly hard-working non-profit society.
We’ve worked pretty hard ourselves too, earning a Green level certification for 2019 with a score of 38/45!
But what does this mean? It means we try our very best to do our part in helping keep our beautiful city and planet in the best shape we can.
Check out our list of initiatives in place to help reduce and keep our waste to a minimum.
Along with our shiny VIGBC Green badge, we have also put other measures in place that have earned us Surfrider Approval!
This means that we:
- Consume filtered tap water rather than bottled water
- Do not use single-use products as part of our kitchen supplies
- Provide our team and clients with reusable cups, plates, cutlery, etc instead of disposable
- Recycle all soft plastics (shrink wrap, plastic bags, etc), even the tough stuff such as granola bar wrappers – thank you PMD Recycling Solutions!
We are excited to be part of the Think Local First business community. Why are we a member? Easy, look at all the reasons here!
