REV Centre For Optimal Living Achieves green|light Certification

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

REV Center for Optimal Living has completed its green|light Certification. A green ribbon cutting ceremony was held this week in celebration of the center’s completion of the green|light program and their continual efforts in sustainable living for both patients and business operations.

 

As a program of green|spaces, the green|light mission is to work towards sustainability by progressing ways of life and business in Chattanooga.

Its focus is locally-owned businesses in the Chattanooga area with an interest in improving their environmental impact by redirecting everyday policies and practices towards a culture of sustainability while also enhancing employee attraction, public image, cost savings, and environmental stewardship. The program tailors a step by step sustainability plan to businesses of all sizes.


REV Center for Optimal Living chiropractors focus on addressing the root causes of pain so patients may be the absolute best in every area of their life: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. REV has a holistic model for their teachings and practices, but also fully embrace the holistic approach to their space and their business operations.


“REV is one of those businesses that just gets it. Their treatment approach is intrinsically interwoven with sustainability and they have been advocates of social and environmental business practices since day one. We are so excited to certify them as our newest green|light businesses and further share their mission with the Chattanooga community,” said Kelley Cureton, green|light program director.


In its efforts toward green|light certification, REV has maximized their use of natural daylight, implemented LED lighting to reduce energy, and filled office spaces with indoor plants to provide clean oxygen for clients and staff. Likewise, REV sources from available local suppliers and banks with a local establishment. In addition, REV has put into action recycling programs, switched to only Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper products and purchased recycled plastic bottle pens. With its strong belief in community and education, REV is committed to various charity donations, pro-bono sessions, in-kind donations as well as free workshops and informational videos for clients.


“At REV, we believe that everyone is born with an innate potential to heal from the inside out. Our mission is to help people maximize their potential and help them to live a healthier and happier life. The green|light program aligned with this mission,” REV owners Drs. Matt and Monica Smith said.


Once engaged, green|light tells a business’s story by creating a personal eco-policy manual unique to each business, custom signage, marketing, and design work, a green office checklist and a variety of sustainable needs resources. All of these tediously evaluate all policies to save both money and energy.
