Recycling is one of the easiest steps a salon can take toward sustainability. To make things easier, why not get separate trash bins to collect recyclable materials: plastics, aluminium, cardboard, paper and glass?
Salons can buy up to 75 kg of magazines a year – the same weight as a Saint Bernard Dog – which can cost approximately €600 per year. Instead of throwing them away, donate them to charitable groups. Look into sharing subscriptions with other local business, as well.
