Joining a trend in business to protect the environment by recycling, Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa has started a “recycling revolution” in downtown Clearwater and St. Petersburg Florida.
In 2009 almost 12,000,000 tons of waste was diverted from landfills through recycling in Florida but with a goal to get the state to a rate of 75% by 2020 there is still quite a ways to go. The Florida Legislature recognized this fact in 2008 when the Energy, Climate Change and Economic Security Act of 2008 passed establishing new statewide recycling goals.
Citizens, government agencies, tourists and businesses generate 32 million tons of solid waste annually which is close to two tons per resident per year and while recycling rates are improving only about 28% of Floridians recycle.
“One day I simply looked at all of the materials we throw out every day at the salons and I realized that we needed to be more conscious of our environment so we started recycling everything we can,” said Dawn Shannon, owner of Intuition Salon & Spa. “We call it our recycling revolution and at the end of the day we know we are making a difference.”
Every day salons produce a significant amount of waste from plastic bottles to the foils used in the coloring of hair and usually this waste ends up in the landfill. Shannon hopes to have her organic salons recycling all possible items before the end of the year.
