Net Zero

Since we opened our bright and spacious studios and began offering classes, courses, and retreats to help you cultivate a peaceful mind and wellbeing, we’ve had our eye on our environmental impact. We’ve been making a conscious effort to source local and sustainable eco-products and consumables whenever we can. Think eco-friendly yoga mats, props, cushions, and natural cleaning supplies that skip the harsh chemicals.

We even went the extra mile and built a bike shed with some funding we got to encourage folks to pedal their way to our studios, embracing active travel.

But let’s be real—many of us still roll up in cars, and our studios are cosy thanks to a gas-fired boiler that’s not exactly eco-friendly. It’s a lot to change, but we’re determined to do better than ever when it comes to tackling the climate crisis and reducing our environmental impact.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we have recently joined the Step Up to Net Zero programme, thanks to some funding from Glasgow City Council and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. This initiative, led by the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, is helping us step up our game. 

As part of the programme, we have been provided with a tailor-made Action Plan, and we’ve brought on a programme coordinator Simona to drive our efforts in taking concrete steps towards our net zero and circular goals. It’s an exciting journey, and we’re eager to see where it takes us!

So, the first thing our Step Up to Net Zero coordinator looked into was figuring out the numbers on our current carbon emissions. Simona looked at how much energy we use to heat up our cosy studios, keep the lights on to create that welcoming vibe, boil the kettle for all those cuppas and run other appliances. Figuring out our emissions is like shining a light on where we’re at, so we can start brainstorming ways to cut them, and create a plan on how we can achieve Net zero.

We found out that in 2023, our heating and electricity habits contributed roughly 2.25 tons of Co2e to our carbon footprint. Yikes, right? But fear not, we’re already making some plans to reduce that number significantly.

First up, we’re looking into a switch to a 100% renewable energy supplier for our electricity needs and looking at simple behavioural changes and measures that can help to reduce our energy use at the studios. Plus, we’re dipping our toes into the idea of installing solar panels to generate our own renewable power. It’s all about taking those steps toward a greener future!

Over the next few months, we will be working on the development of our Environmental Policy, looking into ways we can become more circular, reduce our waste, and calculate our carbon emissions that come from our supply chain and transportation. 

And hey, mark your calendars because our 1st ever Wellbeing Swap Shop takes place 1st June 24! Picture this: you bring in your preloved wellbeing items like yoga mats, props, and those beloved wellbeing books, and swap them for something new-to-you. It’s all about giving new life to things we no longer need and stopping things ending up in a landfill. 

We’ll make sure to keep you in the loop about our Step Up to Net Zero journey in the coming months, so stay connected for all the latest updates as we take steps toward a more sustainable future. Your support means the world to us, and we can’t wait to share this journey with you!
