The Beauty industry throws away about 800 lbs of waste a minute most of which can be recycled. Our salon has partnered with Green Circle Salons and we are recyling about 90% of what we use in the salon.
Plastic bottles, metal color tubes, aerosol cans, aluminum foils from highlighting services, cardboard color boxes and even our hair. Yes our hair. When we send it back they use the hair clippings for insulation in green buildings as well as for oil spills.
But the greatest thing is all of our excess color which isnt used on our guests is not dumped down the drain and into our drinking water (yes this happens at most salons), but is sent to a lab where they seperate the chemicals and turn it into clean drinking water.
