A Green Private Practice: A Chance to Make A Difference
While building my practice I considered how I could lessen my carbon footprint and be more environmentally conscious. I am proud to say I have been able to take the following steps in hopes of running a Greener Private Practice.
- My office is located in the Coulter Berry Building in Fort Langley, B.C. The building is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited.
- I have been running almost completely paperless since the beginning. I use Jane App in my practice for all client files. This software allows me to keep all of my files secure on a server located in BC and most importantly I can be paper free. My advertising is done online with the exception of business cards. There is even a whiteboard that can be used in session to avoid the use of paper.
- My office windows allow for an abundance of natural light so we are rarely turning any lights on.
- Most importantly to me, my office is in a location that allows me to utilize other forms of transportation other than my car on most days.
