Physical Therapyworks believes in movement as medicine and are deeply committed to help achieve a speedy, lasting recovery through the most advanced, reliable and effective treatments available. They create customized treatment plans for each patient.
Physical Therapyworks purchases 100% renewable power from California Clean Power Alliance, Santa Monica’s local community choice aggregation (CCA) provider. For energy efficiency, T-8 and LED fixtures are installed facility wide. To reduce solar heat gain, window film was applied to their large south facing windows. Occupancy sensors were installed on the restroom light switch, and their thermostat set to cool at 73 degrees. All office printers, copiers and workstation monitors are ENERGY STAR rated. These retrofits combined cut their energy use by approximately 15%.
To decrease waste going to landfill Physical Therapyworks enhanced their recycling program with strategic bin placement displaying clear signage. They switched to 100% post-consumer recycled, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified copy paper for day-to-day printing. To further close the recycling loop, all paper towels and tissues are also FSC Certified. Additional Waste Reduction is achieved by recycling laser print cartridges, reducing junk mail, and switching from paper to electronic documentation and digital reports.
Pollution prevention practices include giving preference to procuring non-toxic, and/or green certified products for daily use cleaning. This includes replacing their surface disinfectant cleaner with Purell Surface Cleaner, an EPA Safer Choice Certified product. Physical Therapyworks sustainable transportation measures implemented under the guidelines of the GoSaMo Transportation Management Organization (TMO) include performing local errands on foot, installing a bike rack, and having employees commuting by walk, bike and/or public transit when feasible.
After re-certifying as a green business, Physical Therapyworks updated their Company Environmental Policy, including eco-preferred procurement guidelines, to reflect the above measures in order to ensure their ongoing commitment.
