LEADING PLASTIC RECYCLING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD

You may be surprised to learn that world-wide we produce about 320 BILLION tons of plastic every year, and about 10% of this ends up in the ocean.

Unfortunately plastic doesn’t degrade easily, it actually contaminates the soil and waterways, causing damage to marine life. Add to this the waste of paper, metal and more, and you soon see that we can no longer send all this waste to landfill.

After joining Sustainable Salons, Brighton Day Surgery is set to change all this.

We now recycles 95% of its waste by using the comprehensive resource recovery program offered by Sustainable Salons. “We are committed to sustainable growth that encourages social responsibility and respect for the planet. This simple initiative can make all the difference to what was once landfill waste become a future resource”, says Alice Ragless, general manager.

Rather than contaminating the waterways, plastics are recycled into outdoor furniture and underground sheeting to protect the NBN.

What’s more, our staff love that all proceeds from recycling are donated to OzHarvest to fund meals for disadvantaged people – Sustainable Salons donates more than 2,000 meals every month!

As clients become more aware of the impact products have on the environment, they have also welcomed the opportunity to make a difference.

“The salon industry needs to take action now, and take care of the environment as much as we take care of clients”, says Paul Frasca, co-founder and Managing Director of Sustainable Salons.  “Brighton Day Surgery staff really care about making their day surgery as eco-friendly as possible. When they looked at what they could do to become more sustainable ecologically and economically, Sustainable Salons was the obvious choice.”

 

By joining Sustainable Salons, Brighton Day Surgery is happy it can support charities and benefit the community, while also taking care of a huge waste problem.
