Going Green in the Studio

eco-friendly.jpgAlycea Ungaro, owner of Real Pilates in New York, recently redid her studio’s design and practices to make it more environmentally friendly. Here she explains how why it makes sense for the Earth, and for your bottom line.

Our renovation included laminate flooring (rather than natural wood), which is glue-less, has low VOC emission levels, and uses raw materials as an upgraded use for normal waste streams. When it came time to carpet certain areas we did some research and chose FLOR tiles.  FLOR is an environmentally responsible manufacturer which promotes their “Mission Zero” – by actively reducing their landfill waste and greenhouse gas emissions each year with implementations such as a tile return/recycle policy.
 
Our cleaning supplies have gone green (yummy natural oils and essences give the studio a soothing smell) and so has our lighting, simply by switching to energy-efficient bulbs. We are also making our studio paperless—we have an online scheduling system and now make our weekly memo digital rather than paper. Finally, we began stocking and selling a new product line of vegan, cruelty-free and eco-conscious products.
