Living Stream Wellness believes that balance in our body is as essential as the balance in our natural environment. As we try to make our community healthier, we also dedicate to making the mother earth healthier. One of the great starts is to operate our clinic as eco-consciously as possible. This includes preventing using plastics and papers as much as possible. In order to reduce the use of plastics, we offer the service of packing your daily herbal supplements in small and sealed food grade paper pouch which not only reducing the use of plastic bottles but also increasing the mobility of carrying your daily supplement.
We also encourage our staff and customer to bring their own to-go containers as they enjoy our daily freshly brewed herbal tea. When a paper is necessary, we choose paper made from food-grade and/or post-consumer waste. Most of our products and supplies have been chosen for their organic and/or environmentally friendly properties.
