The City of Lynnwood has named Experience Momentum as an Orca Hero for its mission to educate, support, empower and connect with their clients through physical therapy, massage, nutrition and fitness. Aside from transforming the lives of their clients, Experience Momentum does a lot to give back to their community and the environment, the city said. Some examples include:
- Being a certified B Corporation, which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
- Member of “1 percent for the planet” — meaning they donate 1 percent of their pre-tax revenue back to the environment.
- They gave the City of Lynnwood a permanent easement on a portion of their property to renovate a section of the Interurban Trail to include a workout station, a bike maintenance station and a blueberry planting.
- They hold regular work parties to pick up litter, remove invasive species, and replant with natives along the Interurban Trail corridor.
- Experience Momentum captures and collects rainwater from their roof and uses rain barrels to irrigate their garden beds.
