Our team is excited to be a member of Green Circle Salons, the beauty industry's movement for positive green change. This means that 85-95% of our salon waste is recycled and/or re-purposed, and kept out of landfills and waterways.
Salons produce waste that is often difficult to manage and contaminated with bleach, hair color, and other chemicals. Most salons have high water consumption, high energy usage, and get rid of any chemical by-product down the drain. We properly separate materials for collection into designated bins. Some of the materials we collect include hair, soiled foils, color tubes, aerosols, gloves, excess hair color and lightener, wax strips, nail polish bottles, glass, plastics, cardboard and paper, electronics, batteries, and light bulbs.
Human hair has purpose
Green Circle manufactures "hair booms" for the purposes of oil spill cleanup. Human hair holds the same adsorbent properties as an animal’s fur or feathers and proves to be extremely effective at removing oil from water. Our team sends collects and sends out donate booms to any party in the event of an oil spill.
