PRLog - Feb. 3, 2011 - Did you know plastic water bottles and plastic water bottle caps should be recycled separately? It’s true. And lots of recyclers won’t even take the cap.
Recycled bottle caps
This could be a big hassle and cramp your recycling style, yes, but before you chuck the whole thing in the trash, Quattra Via Aveda Salon Spa and Inner Beauty Gallery can help. The new salon and spa at The Forum in Carlsbad is now participating in a bottle cap recycling program sponsored by natural beauty product leader Aveda. The spa recycles its own bottle caps and invites customers to bring theirs from home.
Aveda initiated the program in 2008 after finding out that most plastic bottle caps are not recycled. To keep the caps from harming our environment, the company is utilizing them in new Aveda packaging.
Quattra Via collects rigid plastic caps, sometimes noted with a 5 in the chasing arrows recycling symbol.
This includes caps that twist on with a threaded neck such as caps on shampoo, water, soda, milk and other beverage bottles and pharmaceutical lids, flip top caps on tubes and food product bottles (such as ketchup and mayonnaise), laundry detergents and some jar lids such as peanut butter.
Excluded from collection are non-rigid lids such as yogurt lids, tub lids (margarine, cottage cheese), and screw on lids that are not rigid. Please do not include any metal lids or plastic pumps or sprayers.
In addition to its bottle cap recycling campaign, Quattra Via uses recycled paper, non-toxic fabrics and paints, and has equipped the salon with recycled flooring and energy-efficient LED lighting.
Quattra Via Aveda Salon Spa and Inner Beauty Gallery offers an array of services and packages. For more information, please visit www.quattravia.com. To book an appointment, call 760-697-1460.
