At GLOW, we try to reduce our waste and consumption as much as possible.
All of our coffee pods, coffee cups and other utensils are made from biodegradable materials. Our sponges, cotton pads and all single use products used in our beauty service are also biodegradable. All of these materials are collected and composed at our owner's home.
All plastics and paper products required in our business are recycled after use. Distilled water jugs are reused, refilled, or recycled after being emptied. We also carry a variety of tanning lotions that come in recyclable/ degradable materials, reducing the landfill impact.
Additionally, we offer clean beauty products. Our brands are all cruelty-free, vegan brands. Our clean beauty brands are all eco-friendly and naturally derived.
Outside of the necessary guidelines for cleanliness set out by the Cosmetic Arts Board, GLOW stresses the use reusable products. Instead of cluttering landfills with paper towels and other single use cleaning products, we stress the use of washable towels and mop pads that are cleaned on eco friendly laundry settings.
We realize that our energy consumption will always be high, given the nature of our industry. But we strive to reduce this use as much as possible by lighting our outdoor signs only when necessary, unplugging and shutting off appliances when not in use, switching off our AC and lighting overnight, and providing environmentally friendly hand dryers instead of paper towels.
If you notice any other areas in which we can improve our environmental footprint, please let us know. We are always looking to improve and expand our green initiatives.
