She might only be 16, but climate activist Greta Thunberg has already given a TED Talk, was named one of the world’s most influential teens by TIME magazine, and back in August 2018, started a school strike for the climate outside the Swedish Parliament that has since spread all over the world. If she can help make a positive environmental change in this world, so can the beauty industry.
It’s time that our industry took a stand for the environment and embrace the power of one. On Thursday, October 24th, Phorest Salon Software is inviting salons from all around the world to go paperless for a day! Click here to make your pledge!
Make a pledge, Make a Change
Did you know that, on average, 300 billion paper receipts are printed each year? That is the equivalent of 25 million trees. Not only that, but:
- To produce these amounts of paper receipts, we consume 22 million barrels of oil
- In the United Kingdom alon, retailiers hand out 11.2 billion receipts each year
As industry and consumers become more sensitive to sustainability, everyone wants to align themselves with products and services that care about the planet. If you haven’t started thinking about how your salon can connect with customers who have an eco-mindset, now is the time to get on it. On Thursday, October 24th, join us and pledge to give our planet a much needed break!
