Cobaarz Eco Salon is going in Sustainable Directions!

We at Cobaarz Eco Salon Warragul pride ourselves on our naturally-derived Aveda products, recycling, eco-friendly cleaning practices and our responsible approach toward waste management. But what about our carbon footprint?

We commissioned an innovative company called Sustainable Directions to come and assess our salon, and to not only establish our carbon footprint, but to help us implement strategies to reduce it, and to point us in the right direction to offsetting it.

Sustainable Directions was established in 2008 to help organisations of all sizes embrace and adopt sustainable practices. They now have a wide network of Business Sustainability consultants who take a practical view of sustainability and recognise the day to day pressures facing business owners and business managers. Their mission statement says it all: “Our mission is to help organisations adopt sustainable strategies to reduce their impact on the environment, increase their community engagement and produce long standing economic benefits.”

In our case our carbon footprint was calculated at 23076 tonnes for the 2012 calendar year. For a salon of our size, that is less than 100kg per square meter, which according to Sustainable Directions’ Managing Director Tony Innes, compares very favourably to organisations of a similar size. See our certificate!

We were also given realistic and effective strategies to further reduce our carbon footprint for the 2013 calendar year. And now that we know our footprint, we aim to not only reduce it for 2013, but to offset our carbon footprint to become the FIRST CARBON NEUTRAL salon in Victoria! Stay tuned for details of our official certification!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony and the team from Sustainable Directions for not only assessing our salon’s carbon footprint, but for helping us determine ways to further reduce and ultimately offset our carbon footprint. Check out their informative website- www.sustainabledirections.com.au , or call their Head Office on (08) 8260 8211, and see how they can help you reduce your carbon footprint, save on energy costs, and most of all promote a sustainable environment for your business! Thanks again to Tony and his team at Sustainable Directions, you guys do amazing work for businesses and ultimately our environment! x
