Sustainability-In-Action: East Side Ink has always focused on sustainability. They have upgraded their lighting to energy-efficient CFL lightbulbs. They reuse plastic bags and recycle all of their used printer cartridges. This tattoo parlor has had its windows caulked and weatherized. Employees rely on filtered tap water for drinking and have eliminated most bottled water use on the premises.

 

Sustainability Goals: East Side Ink has expressed interest in installing a high-efficiency hand dryer at their store to reduce their paper towel usage. They may also take steps to further weatherize their storefront and reduce their trash output by increasing recycling efforts.
