Reduce Reuse Recycle with Easydry

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in your salon

Instead of just recycling, why not focus your team on these three key activities together:

Reduce,

Reuse and

Recycle ...

 

Reduce:

  • Waste not: encourage the team to mix up just the right amount of colour and avoid excessive use of shampoos and conditioners. Not only will this save you money, but it will limit the amount of toxic chemicals being washed down the drain and into the environment.
  • Make a material change: use recycled or eco-friendly and low-toxicity products wherever possible. Swap plastic carrier bags for paper alternatives. 
  • Can you cut car use of the team (and clients)? Do you have somewhere secure to store bikes? Are there any ways you can encourage public transport or walking? 
  • Chose Easydry. Using Easydry biodegradable towels means your business will save an impressive amount of water and energy rather than washing and drying cotton towels or microfibre towels.
  • Reduce. Easydry products are so absorbent you will only need one per client - this will reduce your towel usage overall.

 

Reuse:

  • Reuse - salon. Why not allow used Easydry towels to dry and then reuse them in the salon to clean windows, mirrors, floors and the backwash area? They are lint free so this makes them ideal for a second use in the salon.
  • Reuse - clients. Why not ask your clients if they would like to bring their personal towel home with them after their service? They can use their personal Easydry towel on themselves, at the gym, on pets, on cars or even golf clubs! This could add a little something special to your service.

 

Recycle:

  • Recycle / reuse: reuse anything that can be reused and recycle everything else. Paper, cardboard, your Easydry towels, glass, tins and batteries are all easily recycled, but with a little effort, so are most plastics, aluminium foils and colour tubes and hair (for composting). Used furniture, fittings or appliances can often be rehomed through charity shops or websites such as Freecycle and Freegle.
  • Recycle. Easydry towels can be recycled with cardboard, can be disposed of with landfill waste or with biodegradable waste.
