How are tanning beds bad for the environment?

    Tanning beds are dangerous to both the environment and our health. The bulbs in tanning beds contain high levels of mercury, and if broken or not recycled correctly, the mercury could be released and exposed to humans, causing neurological damage, birth defects, and digestive disorders. Tanning beds also consume a significant amount of energy. In fact, salons can consume tens of millions of watts of electricity each day. Additionally, tanning beds have a life expectancy of 5-10 years, at which point they’re thrown into landfills. Because they are so large, they take up a considerable amount of space. Tanning beds are also designed out of metals and plastics, so they will take thousands of years to decompose.
