Energy Efficiency
Description of Action: 
Energy efficient light bulbs are used throughout the Manalapan studio. We strive to keep the air conditioning set at 74 to conserve energy and maintain low lighting.
Hazardous Waste/Toxic Use Reduction
Description of Action: 
Honor Yoga uses only all-natural cleaning products. In the Manalapan studio, we use rechargeable battery operated candles and when we use real candles they are naturally soy based. We estimate a savings of $50 per month using battery operated candles or $600 per year.

Waste Reduction
Description of Action: 
Honor Yoga seeks to reduce its waste through a variety of initiatives. Paper waste is reduced by only providing cloth hand towels in the bathroom and for cleaning. Additionally, shopping bags are reusable. We discourage the use of bottled water by providing biodegradable, BPA free reusable travel mugs and glass bottles to students, along with offering filtered water where students can fill their own bottles. Honor Yoga only offers biodegradable cups for water upon request. In the Manalapan studio, we estimate that approximately 98% of our members use refillable water bottles. We also supply bio cups and go thru approximately 100 per month and 6 large bottles of water. We also enforce the use of the website almost exclusively for marketing and only print off 1 copy of each workshop flyer to be placed on our wood bulletin board.

Independent Green Buiilding
Description of Action: 
Honor Yoga is committed to Green Building practices, and has designed each studio to incorporate sustainable materials. Bamboo flooring, a renewable resource, is utilized throughout every studio. Bamboo wood matures in three years, regenerates without the need for replanting, and requires minimal fertilization or pesticides. Additionally, every studio has a living, breathing vertical garden, which improves indoor air quality for both staff and students. In the Manalapan studio barn doors made from natural products cover the studio space.
