We Do Our Best To Keep Our Planet Green

Bike-to-work

Most of our doctors, therapists, and staff bike to work, so we built an indoor bike storage area to make it easier. We let our patients use it as well, or the bike rack that we installed out front. Those who don’t bike often ride the bus, which is easy since we’re on Burnside. We’re long time bike commuting advocates.

Lighting

Upon entering the office, you’ll enjoy the abundance of natural light through our windows and skylights. In addition to those, the rest of our lighting is from energy efficient fluorescents, inside and out.

Electricity

From the first day of opening our clinic, we have utilized Pacific Power’s renewable energy program, and we always will.

Heating and cooling

We keep the office comfortable with high-efficiency natural gas furnaces and high efficiency air conditioning units.

Appliances

Our washer and drier are the high efficiency, front-loading washer, water saving type. We do our own laundry, eliminating the carbon emissions of transportation by a cleaning service.

Insulation

Since we had the entire structure rebuilt to our needs, the ceiling and wall insulation exceeds all standards. Additionally, all of our windows are sealed, double pane, thermally efficient and our entryway foyer is specifically designed to minimize air loss to the outside environment as people come and go.

Recycling

We use electronics as much as possible to minimize paper waste. Additionally, all recyclable materials that we use are recycled.
