Blog : Great Works Turns Three!

By Kyle | May 22, 2014 | in

Happy birthday to Great Works Chiropractic— well early birthday that is! Roughly three years ago owner Dr. Seth unofficially opened his practice out of his rented home in Berwick, Maine. Great Works Chiropractic officially opened its doors on July 1st, 2011. Through these past three years Great Works has gone to great efforts to incorporate green, sustainable practices into their business. Just these past few months they have begun to use a new software system to run the office. This system allows for better real time access to patient records that ultimately saves tons of paper. Great Works is in the process of shredding and recycling paper files already in existence and are looking forward to no longer having to print future patient files. This system is not only better for the environment, but will improve patient care in numerous ways.

Dr. Seth is as dedicated to making his business environmentally friendly as he is living his personal life sustainably. He has recently started vermicomposting—a type of composting that uses worms to break down organic waste to produce nutrient-rich organic fertilizer. Dr. Seth finds the process “fun and cool—and [it] doesn’t smell.” In addition to vermicomposting, Dr. Seth has taken up harvesting wild edibles as a hobby. By finding his own food in the wild he avoids contributing to and supporting the negative impacts many farming processes have on our environment. By supplementing much of his diet with wild edibles, Dr. Seth produces less waste then if he were to buy packaged products. He even finds that many “weeds” are actually more nutritious than many crops cultivated by farmers!

Dr. Seth’s passion towards living a sustainable lifestyle makes it easy to use more environmentally friendly products and methods at his office. As the company continues to grow older and become even more established, Great Works Chiropractic will continue to put their patients and the environment first.
