Did you know PPE waste can be turned into clean energy? Green Circle Salons & CasaPRANA

In March 2020 the world shut down because of Covid 19 and the use of PPE ( or personal protective equipment) became essential not just for first responders, but also for the general public. The environmental impact of single use items such as disposable gloves and masks is already showing up in our oceans and landfills. This is especially hard to witness for those of us who work hard to practice a low waste lifestyle. And for businesses owners with eco values/  But… is there a more responsible way that PPE can be disposed of with a minimal negative effect on the environment? Today’s podcast is a part 2 to our previous one with Green Circle Salons. They have a cool new PPE initiative through which they help salons dispose of PPE products responsibly. You must be wondering… if these salons are “green” then isn’t using single use masks irresponsible? I agree and to be honest most green businesses have figured out how to function without the use of single use PPE but there are still some items that cannot be avoided because of the safety and personal protective risks of Covid! We’ll go into deeper discussion on this with today’s guests. We’re welcoming back Will Simpson from Green Circle Salons and also sustainable salon owner Rebecca from CasaPRANA in North Carolina, USA.  My name is M and I’m the host of the Sustainable Life Podcast and founder of the Sustainable Life App – and free app on apple and android for Sustainable Living Made Easy!
