4 Ways to Make Your Salon Greener

Monday, August 13, 2018 4:25 PM

Going green isn't just good for the environment. It's also a great way for your salon to save some money. Here are 4 easy ways you can make your salon a greener place, and save some money to boot:

1. Deal with the heat.

During the summer, your salon can get pretty hot between the high temperatures outside and equipment like hair dryers and heated styling tools inside. This can make cranking the air conditioning especially tempting, but before you adjust the thermostat, consider other greener options. For example, ceiling fans can help circulate the air while using less energy than the AC, and a multi-processor can speed treatments up significantly. Not only is using less energy good for the environment, but it can also help reduce your utility costs.

2. Utilize energy efficient lighting.

Lighting is an important feature in any salon. To reduce your carbon footprint and make your salon greener, be sure to switch from outdated incandescent bulbs to energy efficient LED or CFL bulbs. You can also use strategically positioned mirrors to help reflect natural light into your salon, reducing your energy use and helping you save on electricity (all while creating an open, airy environment for your clients and staff).

3. Add natural air filtration.

Something as simple as bringing more live plants and flowers into your salon can go a long way toward making your salon a greener place. Plants will help filter the ever-present salon chemicals from the air and are more visually appealing than commercial air filters¬Ě and they don't require any energy.

4. Use environmentally friendly products.

There are lots of eco-friendly products out there that can help you turn your salon into a green business. For example, if you're planning to update your salon's look this year, be sure to choose zero volatile organic compound paints, which are better for the environment and lower in chemical odors. You can also take advantage of eco-friendly salon furniture and salon equipment, which can help you reduce waste and save money.

By following the simple tips above, you can do your part for the environment and turn your salon into a green haven. Going green will not only benefit your clients, staff and the environment, but it can also help you reduce costs and save money.
