Green Circle Salon

 

 

The Hairdressers is proud to be involved in a comprehensive recycling/ reuse program that will significantly help us to reduce our environmental impact on the planet. The program allows us to redirect out of water streams and landfills everything once considered as garbage: hair, foils, color tubes, paper, plastics, and liquid chemical waste.

Green Circle Salons is a company that partners with salons to help them reduce their environmental footprint. Their mission is to make the North American salon industry sustainable by 2020. They’re working to achieve this goal in a way that is affordable, achievable and most importantly, with an impact. They believe that small steps to transform each salon, with the help of customers and employees, over time, will make that green conversion possible and sustainable. They offer an eco-systems approach that looks at recycling, energy, lighting water, cleaning products and re-purposing of hair.

Here are just a few ways Green Circle uses our recycle products to help reduce our impact:

Hair:

  • Oil Booms made from recycled nylons and hair to absorb oil and chemical spills
  • A biologically friendly compost material

Color Tubes & Foils:

  • 95% of all aluminum can be recycled over and over again
  • Recycling aluminum uses only 5% of the energy required to create a virgin aluminum from bauxite

Hair Color:

  • Instead of getting rinsed down the drain ad put into our water streams, all of our excess chemical/ color waste gets sent to a hazardous waste facility where it is incinerated to produce clean energy

 

With Green Circle, your trip to our salon will be an even more positive and green experience.  We also hope to offer you peace of mind knowing that we have taken meaningful steps to keep your community clean and healthy.
