How can a bridal shop be green? NWLA Bridal’s Environmental policy statement, addressing waste reduction, toxins elimination, environmentally preferable purchasing, and water/energy conservation, is posted in the staff break room outlining their commitment to sustainability.
NWLA commits to sustainable procurement of paper products, from tissue paper to paper towels containing a minimum of 40% post-consumer recycled content. Additionally, the bridal shop transitioned to sustainable cleaning supplies third party certified by Green Seal or US EPA Safer Choice.
NWLA Bridal minimizes waste by providing reusable garment bags and hand towels in the restroom. Most customer communications and transactions are completed digitally, so less than 4 reams of 100% post-consumer content recycled paper are used annually. Two sided printing and copying are standard practices in the boutique. For water conservation, a high-efficiency aerator was installed in the restroom sink faucet, reducing the flow to only half a gallon per minute – a reduction of 50%.
