With sustainability in the spotlight, it’s time salons walked the eco-friendly catwalk. After all, the attitudes of clients are changing and if you’re not ready to change with them, you may find them leave for good! It’s time to turn down those lights and follow our essential tips in how to sustain an eco-friendly salon.
Becoming eco-friendly starts with reducing plastic! This is vital in minimising damage to important ecosystems and even our own health. Providing glass bottles for products is a great way to do this, as well as stocking sustainable alternatives like washable capes and degradable gift cards. Recyclable products, specifically, are made even better with…
Many eco-friendly brands, such as L’Oréal Professionnel’s Source Essentielle, are designed to be refilled after use. Offering a refill station will give clients a reason to bring in reusable or glass bottles for products such as shampoos, getting rid of any single-use plastic support.
Lighting can be surprisingly expensive, but there are some amazing eco-friendly alternatives! LED lighting is a shining example, using just a portion of energy that older options provide. Not only that, they come in plenty of styles to suit your salon or spa, meaning there’s something for everyone.
Why not ignite your eco-friendly passion by swapping your spa candles for soy-based alternatives? Not only are these vegan-friendly but are non-toxic, providing much better air quality compared to their paraffin cousins. As for other candle types… tell them to mind their beeswax!
Fancy revamping your salon’s furniture? Upcycled furniture is the way to go to give a home to previously unwanted décor, providing you don’t opt for brand-new pieces from eco-friendly retailers. Other sustainable extras like plant life also reduce CO2 emissions and create a soothing environment for clients to be in.
