Most Americans are faced with a choice when they enter a big retail store… go through the automatic doors or the push-open doors?
If you are in a wheelchair, there’s not much of a choice. But for the rest of us, I’d urge you to choose the manual side, because:
1. You will get some additional exercise that would not otherwise be part of your life.
2. You will save the energy that it would take to open the doors.
3. You will save the store the cost of the electricity it would take to open the doors.
If you make this choice enough times, you will make a difference. If everyone you know makes this choice, we’ll all make a significant difference.
