Making Salons Ecofriendly
Eco Eclectic Tech is at the forefront of sustainability in the salon industry, offering innovative solutions to help salons convert their waste into valuable resources. Their comprehensive approach addresses various types of waste, carbon emissions, grey water, and even utilizes waste materials to create unique furniture and interior designs. Here is a detailed description of their initiatives:
Carbon Emissions Calculation and Audit
Eco Eclectic Tech recognizes the significance of reducing carbon emissions in the salon industry. They offer carbon emissions calculation and audit services to help salons assess their environmental footprint. By analyzing energy usage, transportation, and other contributing factors, they identify areas for improvement and provide recommendations to reduce carbon emissions. This includes promoting energy-efficient appliances and encouraging the use of renewable energy sources.
Grey Water Recycling
To address water conservation, Eco Eclectic Tech advocates for grey water recycling in salons. Grey water refers to wastewater generated from salon activities such as hair washing and treatment processes. Eco Eclectic Tech helps salons implement systems to collect and treat grey water for reuse in non-potable applications, such as flushing toilets or irrigation.
Waste-to-Furniture and Interior Design
Going beyond waste management, Eco Eclectic Tech pioneers the concept of using salon waste materials to create furniture and unique interior designs. They collaborate with designers and craftsmen who specialize in upcycling or repurposing waste materials. For example, hair clippings can be transformed into sustainable furniture such as our special eco wood which can be used to make furniture for the same salon.
Eco Eclectic Tech assists salons in implementing effective waste management systems to minimize their environmental impact. They provide guidance on segregating different types of waste, such as hair clippings, plastic containers, paper, cardboard, and chemicals. Through partnerships with specialized waste management companies, they ensure that each waste stream is directed to the appropriate recycling or disposal channels.
We encourage salons to participate in hair donation programs. Hair clippings can be collected and repurposed for making wigs for people with medical conditions or used as a natural fertilizer in gardening.
We promote the use of eco-friendly and recyclable product containers in salons. They establish recycling programs within the salon, providing separate bins for plastic waste. These plastic materials are then sent to local recycling facilities to be transformed into new products.
Paper and Cardboard
Recycling bins are made readily available to collect paper and cardboard waste in salons. Eco Eclectic Tech encourages the use of recycled paper products and promotes electronic record-keeping to reduce paper waste.
Metal waste in salons may include empty aerosol cans, metal clips, or aluminum foil used for highlighting. Metal recycling programs should be in place to ensure these items are collected separately and sent for recycling.
