In an industry where “going green” is not the easiest of tasks, we at Crowned have taken steps to make sure we are as green as can be!
-The first thing we did was take out those old florescent bulbs in our ceiling fixtures and replace them energy efficient ones! Plus, we didn’t just throw those old ones out back, we recycled them. To find out the best place to recycle your old fluorescents visit Earth911.
-From the start we only used ENERGY STAR® qualified bulbs in our chandeliers. They not only last longer but use 75% less energy.
-All salons need a washer and dryer, this keeps everything sanitary, the towels, the smocks and etc. We couldn’t think of any better way to be green than with the front-load ENERGY STAR® compliant Washer and Dryer. The washer uses 66% less water and 82% less energy. We did our research and decided on a gas dryer, which can be up to 50% more efficient than an electric dryer. Plus, we opted for one with temperature and moisture control which can yield an additional conservation of up to 15%.
-YES WE DO! We recycle everything we can – paper, bottles, cans and some plastics! Furthermore, we had a professional water filtration system installed in the refrigerator in order to reduce our consumption of plastic bottles.
-Our Kevin Murphy® line of products features a bottle or tube that can be recycled, we encourage you to recycle those bottles after use! Kevin Murphy, an Australian owned company, believes in reducing global pollution. A key part of their business is focusing on how to “find cleaner, more sustainable methods of doing business.”
We are not stopping here, at Crowned Studio we are constantly exploring ways to become greener. As we make changes and improvements, we’ll be sure to update you!
