Love your Mother.
We love, love, love being a Green Circle Salon!!
Today we received a report from them letting us know just how much waste Salon Incognito diverted in 2017.
Let me tell you, it was A LOT!!!
557lbs of solid waste
51lbs of liquid waste
That’s 608 total lbs we personally kept out of our landfills and water streams! Go us!!
Green Circle Salons as a whole diverted 955,011lbs of waste in 2017!!! What an awesome company!!
If you’re not already familiar with them, Green Circle Salons is a small company with BIG ideas. Their goal: to make the salon industry sustainable. And with participation growing from salons nationwide, together we are surely making a difference.
When we first learned of this concept, we didn’t even hesitate to sign on. To be able to keep items from our daily operations out of landfills is exactly the kind of movement we want to be a part of! Items that we used to deem wasteful like hair, foils, and colour tubes, are now sorted in-house and picked up by GCS for recycling. They’ve re-used the hair for things like cleaning up oil spills and the foils/colour tubes are easily repurposed into other materials. The program also gives us the resources to properly dispose of chemicals rather than rinsing them down the drain.
We are so happy to be a Green Circle Salon and take pride in knowing that we’re doing our part to help keep our people and our planet beautiful. If you’d like to learn more about Green Circle Salons, you can visit them at www.greencirclesalons.ca
