One Snoqualmie business, Lula Ruby, an Organic Salon, was among the 97 companies named “Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction” this year by King County’s Solid Waste Division. Lula Ruby (lularubysalon.com), owned by Angela Favero, strives to reduce or eliminate their carbon footprint in the Snoqualmie Valley. Favero works with product supply companies that share their vision to eliminate unnecessary waste in packaging. Since day one, she has utilized Puget Sound Energy’s Green Power program, and recycles everything down to the foils that are used in clients’ hair. Lula Ruby uses glasses to serve water to their guests, and they recently purchased a low-energy washer and dryer combo. They also compost the hair that they sweep up off the floor.
