The program helps us redirect out of water streams and landfills everything that was once considered garbage: hair (in 2010 Green Circle Salons sent more than 1,000 pounds of hair to the Gulf of Mexico to help clean the BP oil spill), foils, color tubes, paper, plastics, and liquid chemical waste (most salons today simply rinse all leftover liquid chemicals into the sink and down the drain).
We are very excited to take our industry in a new direction with exceptional standards of environmental accountability. The beauty industry poses many challenges to the environment, from the sourcing of ingredients to the disposal of packaging and products. Through our alignment with Green Circle Salons, we hope to ameliorate our ecological footprint by implementing simple, green changes that will make our salon and our industry more sustainable. We are proud of this new partnership because we know that Green Circle Salons is 100% traceable and fully accountable for how they handle the materials we give them.
