As much as we care our customer, we also care our world’s environmental problems. Therefore we established our self as 1st Organic Salon in India.
Here is the list of items we AVOID using in our salon to reduce the carbon footprint:
They may be found in hair dyes, nail polish and nail polish removers.
Always we use hair and skin products that don’t contain any of the “nasties” and are green and kind to the environment.
Mostly we use products that contain natural ingredients, for example:
- For Skin and body treatments – seaweed, mud and herbal remedies.
- We use natural herbs like peppermint and eucalyptus for showers and facial steaming.
- Henna for hair colour
- You may also consider adding natural hair removal services like sugaring or threading.
Non biodegradable packaging materials
Always remember to ask suppliers to provide products in refillable containers & paper covers that help to reduce carbon footprint.
Alternatively, place these materials in one of your recycling bins and ask our supplier to remove and destroy them through a waste management company.
Hair salons tend to use a lot tinfoil for hair colouring. Don’t just throw it away after it’s been used, even used tinfoil can be recycled. Check your city’s recycling program to find out how to recycle.
This is a tough one too as hair salons use aerosols in hair sprays. But, we switched to pump dispensers or use low volatile organic compound (VOC).
Candles are essential part of salon / slimming and spa centre but we use soy candles which is are more earth friendly than paraffin and beeswax candles.
We save trees by reducing the papers
We even taken one step further and using recyclable ink for our printer.
Also all billing are, turn to emails & SMS
Secondly, we use washcloths instead of paper towels in our salon’s bathroom.
Water and energy
Water and electricity are essential to running our salon. Saving these will contribute to a more sustainable planet. So,
We use Water wisely
We use natural light whenever possible.
We use energy-saving light bulbs – LED (branded).
We use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable batteries.
