EDUCA Business Association and ASEIMPEVA (Association of Professional Image Consultants in Valladolid) encourage the integration of the circular economy in hair salons and barbershops in Valladolid.
This project teams up with EDUCA’s audit offices in different business sectors.
EDUCA Business Association and ASEIMPEVA (Association of Professional Image Consultants in Valladolid) have signed an agreement to work together to develop circular economy projects that identify the needs of hair salons and barbershops in the province when managing and revaluing their waste, as well as possible eco-design formulas for non-recyclable.
This agreement will settle ASEIMPEVA in the circular economy projects currently developed by EDUCA Business Association in cooperation with the Agency for Innovation and Economic Development of Valladolid City Council (INNOLID) within the initiative #ValladolidCircular. In this context, Jorge Gutiérrez, President of EDUCA Business Association, has referred to “the different audit offices carried out by the Association in different kinds of businesses to promote their certification in good circular economy practices”.
In fact, EDUCA is leading a certification project thanks to a European circular economy label that is based on the European Union’s definitions and standards. Meanwhile, Mariano Castaño, President of the Association of Professional Image Consultants in Valladolid (ASEIMPEVA), has publicly shared the sector’s concern for the waste it produces on a daily basis (which most cannot be recycled nowadays). He has also advocated for “the necessity of incorporating all companies in the circular economy, not just because of civic responsibility and environmental awareness, but also for efficiency purposes”.
The agreement between these two associations will allow auditing many hair salons and barbershops in order to establish the standards and indicators that must be taken into account in this sort of companies when stepping into a circular economy model. EDUCA Business Association is already carrying out this sort of analysis in businesses from other sectors such production and marketing of hotel equipment (Inhostel), computer equipment (AMG Informática), eco-design (Iván Díez Estudio Creativo), event organization (Strategia Infinita), fire prevention systems (Crespo Extintores), repair and maintenance services for household appliances (El Manitas), earthworks and excavations (Excavciones Pisuerga) and cable manufacture (Grupo CSV).
