SWITCHING OFF APPLIANCES TIP
Switch appliances off or unplug them at the wall rather than leaving them on standby. By implementing this tip, over a year, a typical 4-chair salon can reduce their CO2 impact by almost 700 kg – that’s more CO2 than 77 trees offset in a year.
Implementing this tip could also:
- Reduce energy usage by 1413 kWh
- save €210 on energy bills
CLEARING THE HAIR TIP
Do you blast the hairdryer at the end of each session to clear the hair into the centre of the floor? Over a year, that short blast produces 15 kg CO2 – that’s the same amount of CO2 produced baking 25 batches of cookies!
The short blast also:
- amounts to 27 kWh
- adds up to €4.15 of wasted electricity
Did you know laptops consume far less energy than desktop computers? Making the switch will reduce almost 100 kg CO2 per year – that’s half the amount of CO2 emitted while producing a laptop.
Making the switch could also save:
- 176 kWh
