Buy An Acre Programme
I am concerned about the environmental impact and waste produced from salon waxing, namely by single dipping wooden spatulas. So I pledge to donate 10% from the sale of each wax service to the World Land Trust for their Buy An Acre programme.
The World Land Trust's Buy an Acre project gives overseas partners the vital resources they need to purchase land and protect it – whether it is a wildlife corridor linking isolated reserves, or tropical forest threatened by deforestation.
FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE
Intact, healthy forests are the green lungs of the planet, taking CO2 from the atmosphere and locking it away. Saving the world’s last remaining forests is a crucial way of tackling climate change.
Buy an Acre projects target areas with high biodiversity that are also home to threatened wildlife like the Jaguar, and species yet to be discovered. Saving land can prevent extinction.

NB Colour Print
NB have already eliminated volatile compounds from their litho printing processes through a rigorous waste management programme and introduced an Environmental Management System to enable them to achieve ISO14001 status.
NB Colour Print is my choosen printer for my business stationary. Not only do they offset the carbon produced directly through all of their business activities, they also offer carbon balanced paper! NB’s unavoidable annual carbon footprint was measured at 184 tonnes. They offset this through the international conservation charity World Land Trust.
NB have offset 862.40 Tonnes of carbon since November 2011, this equates to 72,604m2 of land saved!

Wedmore Beauty Lounge is a zero to landfill business. Reducing and recycling of waste is a top priority, however there is an unavoidable amount that cannot be recycled due to it being clinically hazardous.
Virido transforms millions of tonnes of ‘waste’ into quality recycled commodities and renewable energy. Their waste and recycling services protect and enhance our environment and positively contribute to regional communities and economies.
Construction of the £252 million Resource Recovery Centre (RRC) in Avonmouth, Somerset began in Summer 2017. Once operational the centre will use safe, environmentally sustainable and reliable technology to divert 320,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste away from landfill. The Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) will also generate up to 282GWh of electricity which will power the facility itself and export enough energy to power the equivalent of 77,280 homes.

Air Purifing Plants
NASA's Clean Air Study found that there are air purifying plants that can detoxify your home from the airborne toxins, dusts and germs that can be found in a variety of household products, materials and furniture.
I've given Wedmore Beauty Lounge a breath of fresh air with the best air purifying plants. They improve air quality by trapping and capturing pollutants, help us to breathe more easily. Likewise, they provide a wide range of mental and physical health benefits.
Pollution levels are often higher indoors than outdoors as indoor air represents a mix of:
